Happy first day of fall everyone! I am so excited! After a long, hot, dry and nausious summer I can't wait for cooler weather and all of our fall traditions. T and I have always been big on creating our own traditions and have some now that span several years. Over the years we have also been blessed with lots of friends that have been a part of our little family's celebrations.
So in honor of the first day of fall (officially) here are a list of our family's traditions that I am looking forward to in the next couple of months:
1. Baking homemade Chex Mix and watching the Wizard of Oz
2. Carving pumpkins
3. Roasting our pumpkins seeds from our pumpkins (I will try to post the receipe here this year!)
4. Driving out to the country to do some end of season hiking and seeing the leave change
The top picture is from carving pumkins in 2006 when we were in grad school and the one below is a bad picture but its so darn cute. Its from 2005 and our first year in grad school--don't we all look so young?
What are some of the things you and your family look forward to in the fall?
