These Are a Few of My Favorite Fall Things

-That unmistakable smoky smell of fall in the air when your neighbors burn their leaves.
-Chrysanthemums, otherwise known as mums. (I prefer the longer version thanks to one of my favorite scenes in the movie Anne of Green Gables.)

-Apple orchards and crisp, juicy apples, apple cider, apple turnovers, apple crisp, apple pie...apples are at their best in the fall!

-Pumpkins! On your doorstep, in your house, in great big patches, lined up in rows for sale. Pumpkins everywhere!

-Carving jack o' lanterns, scooping out the goop, and roasting pumpkin seeds. Yummy!

-Slightly corny but cute festive clothes for your kids (and even for you! Thanks, Target)

Sam was not in the mood for this. My shirt says "Boo!"

"Mommy's little pumpkin"

-Corn mazes

-The return of cocoa and hot chocolate and warm soft blankets


This is completely classic.

-Good photo opps like these that can only happen in the fall:

-The beauty of changing leaves and fall foliage. (Want to see what the foliage is like in Iowa and what a native New Englander thinks of it? Stay tuned next week!)

-And the coming of the most wonderful time of the year (at least in my book!). Thanksgiving and Christmas!

What are your favorite things about fall?

I love turning the fireplace on. Although with small kids it's not as peaceful as it could be. =)

I also love making soups and breads once it gets cold.

Those are definitely good things Lisa. I wish I made soups and breads. I need to start doing that!

Fall really is a GREAT season. I love the changing of the colors and the crisp cool air!

Adorable pumpkins - and I don't mean the vegetables. You have captured the joy of fall.
