The days are getting rapidly shorter, and I can feel us barreling towards another long winter. (Summer was too, too short.) As much as I miss summer, I do love this time of year. This fall I want to:
*Find a pick-your-own-pumpkin farm (hopefully with a hayride for the kids!)
*Pick out (or make) costumes for the kids to take them trick-or-treating for the first time. (Olive has already informed that she wants to be Cinderella.)
*Have (or attend) a bonfire.
*Make home made caramel corn.
*Find someplace that will make a soy pumpkin latte besides Starbucks (because I really hate that Starbucks uses the sweet vanilla soymilk instead of the plain kind.)
*Go coat/boots shopping for the children.
*Start a knitting project.
*Plan a fun Thanksgiving, which might be challenging since we'll be roughing it alone this year.
*Start Christmas shopping/card writing/etc.
*Get a family picture taken for Christmas cards.
*Finish reading Jennifer Worth's "Midwife" books (I'm already halfway through book 2 of 3.)
*Explore a new (to us) place.
I'll check back in here periodically to scratch off the things we actually (hopefully?) accomplish. :)
