Good morning, friends!! Can you believe that Halloween is THIS weekend? It feels like 2021 just got started, and now here we are in October. This fall means so much to me because it’s Kennedy’s very FIRST one! Even though she doesn’t *really* know what fall is all about yet, I still want to make it special for her. I came up with a list of things I really wanted to do with her. Some of these are Halloween-related (like carving a pumpkin!), but others we can do well into November.
If you like this list, you can download it to your computer and even print it off, too!
Our Fall Bucket List:
Go Apple Picking
This one was the first one on our list and we got to complete it in Vermont! (The pictures at the beginning of this post are from our apple adventure.) I love apple picking because I LOVE apples, especially with peanut butter. For Kennedy, I like to steam her apples and add a little bit of cinnamon to them, too.
Carve a Pumpkin
Chris and I are going to do this on Saturday in preparation for Halloween! We usually like to get creative with our pumpkin carvings, but we haven’t come up with this year’s idea just yet.
Bake an Apple Pie
I am 100% planning on doing this for Thanksgiving this year! I love to make creative designs with the dough on top, like cutting out fall leaf shapes!
Burn Fall Candles
Eat Candy Corn
Yep, you have to! I bought a big bag of candy corn over the weekend and put some out in a little ghost-shaped dish. Kennedy is a little too young for candy corn (she hasn’t had any sugar yet), but I know one day she will love this one.
Take Fall Family Photos
We crossed this off our list a few weeks ago! Chris, Kennedy and I took family photos at some gardens near our house. I absolutely can’t wait to get the photos back!
Watch Hocus Pocus
Not going to lie, Chris and I have already watched Hocus Pocus THREE times so far this year. It’s (one of) our favorite Halloween movies and brings back such great memories of being a kid.
Some other items that aren’t listed here, but that I still want to complete, are to pack a picnic and eat it outside, read fall books, and take Kennedy on a hay ride!
I’d love to hear what’s on your list this fall.
