As Luke gets older, it’s getting more important to me to start certain traditions with him. I have great memories from growing up of certain traditions with did every year, and I think it’s wonderful to give your kids solid family times of bonding and fun that they can look forward to year after year.
So I’m curious – what fall traditions do you have? I always make my pumpkin-chocolate chip bread sometime in September, and I decided that this year was a good year to start making it on the first day of fall. We’re living with my parents right now until our house sells (please pray!), so last night we also had chili (my mom’s recipe is out of this world) with great crusty bread.
I’m going to be taking Luke to the pumpkin patch within the next few weeks to get some fun autumn pictures. He was only 3 months old last year, and not super strong with his head, so we didn’t get any, even though I really wanted to go. I think I like the idea of going to the pumpkin patch the first Saturday in October.
Last year Lindsay and I made autumn jam over Columbus Day weekend, and since she is going to be here this year for C-Day, I think we’re going to do it again! (sweeeeet). It’s a delicious blend of sugar, pumpkin, and spices that tastes fab-u-lous on biscuits. Mmmmmm. Oh and last year I also had a Fall Party at my house where everyone had to bring something fall-flavored or fall-colored. I ate so much I almost felt sick. But it was awesome. I was looking forward to doing it again but clearly that’s not gonna happen since we moved 2 states away!
Anyway, I’m curious: what else do YOU do as a family? We don’t celebrate Halloween, so I’m looking for ideas other than that. Would you mind sharing? I’d love to hear! Kids or no kids, I’d love to hear what you do so I can
steal all your ideas learn from your creativity. :)
Happy weekend!!! :)
