Fall is my favorite season of the year.  I like spring - after a long winter it's wonderful to get out into nature again.  But there's something about fall that just awakens me.  Maybe it's the holidays - I've always loved a reason to celebrate.  But here are a few more reasons I love fall!
Apple picking.  It's our family's favorite fall activity.  Not only do we get to enjoy a gorgeous day in nature together, but we get to enjoy months of delicious pies, apple sauce and juice afterward.  And who doesn't love a sweet baby amongst the apples?
Our second favorite fall activity is heading to the pumpkin patch.  The kids love to ride the slides and the barrel rides and the tractor rides and the swings.  Not to mention all the snacks.  And decorating the pumpkins when we get home keeps them occupied long enough for Mommy to make supper!
And last (but certainly not least) I love fall for sweet babies in footie jammies, silly stocking caps and cozy gloves.  (Find those amazing hats here).

I'm all set for the cold - I've got cocoa in my pantry and all the fixins for a delicious chicken-pot-pie in my freezer.  We've harvested the fall vegetables and pulled out the flannel sheets.  And I'm very much looking forward to Thanksgiving when we'll get to spend time with family, eat lots of super-decadent food and -best of all - celebrate baby girl's first birthday!  My oh my how time flies. 

Those are our treasured fall traditions.  What are some of yours?

The picture of the kiddos in their footie pjs and their hats and mitts is adorable! We took my little boy apple picking but it definitely wasn't as warm at our apple farm as it seems to be at yours!
