Friday Free For All-FALL! AUTUMN! WAHOO!

Posted on

* This is my favorite FAVORITE time of year. For real. Everything. The air, the events, the frame of mind; the anticipation of what's to come. Yes, I love the fall. LOVE IT! Passionately.
* I do get mildly depressed though to realize that we will not be spending any portion of Autumn in the foreseeable future in the White Mountains of NH. Damn school aged children. Hub did promise me that we could go next year, however, it will be a late summer trip. New Hampshire in the fall is my heaven.
* Be proud of me–I've only had 3 Pumpkin Spice Lattes so far.
* I can not wait to make Mommy Daisy's pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, which have been an autumn staple the last 2 years. (link to be added later)
* And No Whey Mama's Autumn Soup (again, link later)
* I think I am most looking forward to apple picking. This was a new activity for us last year and ended up being our favorite. Plus, the orchard we went to had homemade pumpkin ice cream!!!
* And of course our annual photo at Letchworth State Park–at least there's no chance of the big kids dropping Liv on her head this year. (jinx)
* Ok but (really) most of all, I'm looking forward to the kids enjoying it all. Liv will be able to take most of it in and be an active participant. I love that the kids know that we have traditions and that they are looking forward to doing all this crap as much as we are.

  1. I posted yay fall today too! I should look into apple picking around here.

  2. NH in August is pretty great, too. Thanks for the shout out!

  3. This makes me want to stick out my tongue at you.Because I am sure…that if we HAD fall. It would be my favorite season ever, too. But we don't have fall. We have Summer, then some cooler weather perhaps in December or January, but by early February I am putting in the garden that I pulled up in Novemeber. It doesn't *sound* bad…but there is no apple time or crisp weather…or jackets.Tell me where you go. I want go on vacation there, too. So I can have fall, just once.

  4. I made those cookies last year too and they were a ten.Well done on the Pumpkin Spice Lattes! Although it's the Gingerbread that really kicks my ass.

  5. I love fall too! There are so many great things about it. I have the ingredients and have just been waiting for the right time to make pumpkin cookies right now. Guaranteed it will be soon. I don't remember when I posted the recipe, so I'll find it and repost it for you. That should help you link it. I've been wanting to do that anyway.And I also can't wait for a few cool days to make Swistle's Autumn Soup that I love too. Mmm.Plus the leaves will soon be falling, thee weather will be cooling, and we can break out warmer clothes. Fun times!

  6. Mmmm… I'd like to try those cookies. Apple picking is one of my favourite fall activities.
