Fall is a Wonderful Season
I know Fall will be here once all the kids start going back to school and the days start getting a little shorter. There will soon be a crispness in the air and it is all leading up to the wonderful season I love called Fall.
Here are a few reasons I love Fall:
-- Our seasonal trip or two up to Apple Hill to enjoy the day with our family at the apple farms eating caramel apples and bringing home delicious apple pies and apple cider.
-- Getting out all of our Fall decorations like pumpkins, scare crows, hay bales, dried gourds and all of the Fall foilage.
--I love the comfort foods of autumn, Mrs. Slagel's pumpkin bread recipe, homemade caramel dip, baked apple pies, spice cake, chicken and dumplings, mulled cider.
--Hay rides, mazes, apple and pumpkin picking with my family.
--Putting out our Jack-o-lantern, and making of Halloween costumes.
--The scents of the season, baked apples, cinnamon, spices....mmmmmm I love the smells.
--The warm colors of autumn, pumpkins overflowing on front porches, corn stalks, the jewel colored mounds of mums.
--Putting out throws and blankets on the couches for snuggling while watching an old movie. Adding the down comforters to our beds and snuggling in warm flannel sheets.
Fall is great!! We've already made it to Apple Hill already and it is just the start of our Fall fun!!
