Hey there!! Can you believe we only have one week til Halloween? This year has just flown by, and I'm starting to hyperventilate knowing that Christmas is just TWO short months away. Yikes!! But let's not think about that right now!!
Right now I want to focus on how much I LOVE fall!! We have been having so much fun around here, and I thought I'd share what's been going on!!
One thing we make time to do every year is to go to our local pumpkin patch. The pumpkins are way overpriced, but the kids love the petting zoo, the hay rides, and picking out their very own pumpkins!
So fun! We've also kept busy with some fall crafting! Do you remember when I made this wreath?
That started the fall season for me!! I've even done some fall crafting with the kiddos!! I'll share the actual craft with you later this week, but we had some good old googly-eyed fun that had us all rolling!
I also made my first apple pie of the season, which is really good for me considering I'm not a very good cook!! I guess I can't take all the credit since my parents gave me the apples sliced and ready to go! But I put it in the oven, right? Doesn't that mean I get most of the credit?!
I've been so busy lately that I just barely got motivated to decorate my house for Halloween. So, so sad...because I LOVE Halloween!! I asked for your advice Here as to how I should decorate my doorway, but I still just ended up doing the same thing I always do!
I loved my fall wreath so much that I decided to leave it up for a while longer. So all I did was buy a $2 bag of cobwebs and stretch them out across our entryway, just like I did last year. We already had the spiders and bats, so we added those to the cobwebs and called it good! It was super easy. And even though it's the same thing I do every year, my kids get a kick out of it! They love how creepy our house looks. Maybe next year I'll be more motivated to get new decorations, but for now, this works!
Did you decorate for Halloween? Do you have your costumes ready?!
Well, stay tuned later this week for a fun Halloween craft to make with the kiddos!
Thanks for reading!
