Fall Bucket List Check In

I can't believe how Fall is flying by! Before you know it we will be "Decking them Halls and all that stuff"(Excuse my Peanuts reference!) Anyway since Halloween is this weekend and in my mind Fall is wrapping up and Christmas carols are turning on! (Okay who am I kidding the Christmas carols have been on for a while now!) I thought now was as good a time as any to do our first Fall Bucket List check in! 

Visit the Pumpkin Patch 
We already went once with out buddy Kaysan from Playgroup, but weather permitted will be going again on Friday! 

Go to the Balloon Festival 

Paint Pumpkins
We have yet to carve one, but hopefully will get to that this weekend! We have done our share of pumpkin painting

Watch It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown
Remember, even Puppy dressed for the occasion though Hallie wouldn't keep the hat on!

 Read a Thriller
I am actually on my 2nd and it's even better than the first!
I read this earlier in the was pretty good...maybe a 3 1/2 or 4 
I am currently reading this and it is "Gone Girl" good I am hanging on every word and don't ever want to put it down!

Make Soup
We have more soup on the way, but we have indulged in a favorite of course beer cheese!

Playgroup Crafts
More to come of course! We were supposed to do one yesterday, and got sidetracked letting the kids play outside since it was such a nice day! But we did make Pumpkin Spice Playdough!

Bake Cookies
I have definitely done my share of that! Here have been my 2 faves this year, Oatmeal raisin and Monster sugar cookies... though I have also made some Pumpkin Chocolate Chip!

Decorate for Fall
Or really just Halloween...pretty soon the tree goes up! I know, I know! I am crazy!

Only 3 more things left on our list!! What have y'all been up to?!

Countdown to Halloween Week 4

I can't believe how close we are to Halloween! The Fall weather has finally come to Dallas and seems to be sticking around and things are getting pretty festive up in here! 

We finally took a trip to the Pumpkin Patch this week! We went with Hallie's friend Kaysan and his Mommy Amy and had a blast! The kids Ran around looking (and trying to pick up all of the pumpkins, went on a "hayride", played in the petting zoo and went through a haystack maze! They loved it! 

I love this photo! It looks like Hal is telling Kaysan "come on!"

Hallie was running around screaming "Baaaa!" at all of the goats and sheep...the sheep were pretty antisocial though

Later this week Mommy's Girls came over for a little PLL Halloween Party! We made Halloween treats and watched Halloween Pretty Little Liars episodes!
Excuse the stack of mail! Monster cookies made another appearance! 

Witches Brooms
Jack-O-Lantern Quesadillas 

Mummy Dogs!
Of course the week wasn't complete without some Halloween Reading and Crafting!
Hallie colored in this Halloween book at her Great Aunt and Uncles birthday party!
At Memi's house, Hallie was treated with more glow sticks and this great book!
Memi also did reading time which was so fun for Hal!

We have had a great week, but there is plenty of Halloween fun on the way, including the big costume Unveiling! Thanks for stopping by to see all the fun we've been having! Grab our button and link up below!
