The best things about fall

Top 5 Reasons to Love the Fall Season

I'm a fan of the fall season.  There are so many things that make you feel all warm and fuzzy.  Here is a short list of some of my favorite things about fall.

1. Apple picking season!

Apple pies, apple juice, apple cider....you get it.


2. Cooler, comfortable weather.

Don't you love sweater weather?  I do.  It makes for everything to be so cuddly!  =)  Great for long walks.

3. Creating funny, scary, different Jack 'o' lanterns.

My oldest daughter is the supervisor in this activity.  She doesn't like to get dirty pulling out the guts of the pumpkin.  She likes triangles for eyes.

4. Baking

What is the best way to warm up than to turn on the oven and make your favorite treats?  From cookies, to casseroles, it is a great season to begin baking.
Get some fun shaped cookie cutters and get the kids in on the action.  Makes for a great activity during the evening to keep them busy, and keep them learning.

5. Warm drinks

It's the season for hot cocoa with baby marshmallows melting on top.  That was always my favorite drink as a kid.
