All Things October.

October in New York has been lovely this year. Today I could have worn shorts. It's been that nice. Of course, we have had some colder days, but if you have experienced a typical October in New England then you will appreciate the mild Fall weather when it does hit. We haven't done as many fun Autumn activities this year as we have in previous years. I didn't buy mums like I usually do, we haven't visited the Apple Orchards yet and I have only taken ONE hayride. Not enough in my books. We have had some pretty busy weekends. We did take the kids to SunnySide Gardens though. We did a corn maze, saw the giant pumpkins and picked out some smaller pumpkins for them to paint. I'm hoping to be able to get a couple more fun Fall days in before winter hits.

I know I will probably get slack for eventing mentioning this...but I've already started Christmas shopping. I said it!
And I will probably be done before Thanksgiving even hits. I actually started in September. I know, I know....a little over the top. But the way I see it is, when all the crazies are out shopping on black Friday and throughout December, I will be in my house watching Christmas movies and sipping on Hot Cocoa- enjoying the holiday spirit. I get extremely excited for Christmas these past few years. Just a few years ago, I remember telling Ty that I wasn't really into Christmas that much. I can't even believe those words came out of my mouth now. Children really have changed my outlook on the holiday and I'm pretty sure it's my favorite holiday.

I'm not sure how this October post turned into Christmas talk...haha. So here's a little Fall Ask and Tell to get things back on track....

What is you favorite Fall drink? Hot Apple Cider

Favorite Fall Activities? Apple Picking and Hay Rides

Favorite Fall Fashion? Big Chunky Sweaters and Ankle Boots

What do you do in your home to get into the season? Burn Autumn scented candles, put dinner in the crockpot, turn on some football and cozy up on the couch with Ty while the kids play.

What is a tradition you keep every year around this time? We always go pick out mums and pumpkins together to decorate the front door. And we usually always go pick apples as well. Also, strangely, we usually do a thorough "Fall cleaning" instead of a Spring Cleaning.

Favorite Fall Food? I can't pick just one!! Apple Cider Donuts, stews and Apple Crisp

Name your top 5 favorite things about Fall: Foliage, Football, Sweaters, Fall Traditions and those delicious Fall-Scented Yankee Candles.

Is Fall your favorite season? It's a close second...I'm a Summer kinda gal. Although I ADORE our beautiful seasons.

Tell me your favorite Fall traditions! And what do you love to eat? I love hearing what others do. Give me all of your ideas!
