Most of you know that I love fall. I love it partly because I was born in the fall, so about the time my birthday comes, there's a sense of new beginning for me personally, as well as a sense of newness around me. There is no where else I would rather live than near the mountains when fall hits. I couldn't bear the thought of having to live in the desert or at the beach during the months of October and November. I would drive whatever distance to just seen the leaves change and smell the autumn air. I love the smell of people burning leaves this time of year, the smell of my Ooey Gooey Pumpkin Cake in the oven and the turkey in the fryer at Thanksgiving. So, for the next few weeks I'll be posting some of my favorite fall activities and recipes. Today, take a look at these pumpkins that the girls and I made yesterday. We had fun putting our own personal touch on them. The big pumpkin is one that I made last year.
I'll be pulling my fall decorations out this week, too. I know that fall doesn't officially start until next week, but I cannot wait! We're starting NOW!
So, what's your favorite part of fall? Have any family traditions you want to share?
Each year I like to add another tradition or favo
rite to the season, so I'm always looking for new ideas. Feel free to steal mine if you like! :) Can't wait to get started....Let's go! It's Fall Y'all! (Sorry, couldn't resist!)

Love them!!! I am going to take it. Tucker and my brother carve a pumpkin from Nivens every year. I have taken Tucker every year to have his picture taken at the "height" pumpkin. I love going down there even in the bad seasons. It just seems like a great place. Can't wait to see more idea's. I love fall and Christmas after that I want warm weather and skip the cold. :)
