Our happy mail days, the stormy weekend that dropped the temps and my Halloween decor are proof that Fall really is officially here ;) I had so much fun crossing items off our Fall bucket list last year that I couldn't resist making another one... especially now that Mia's a little older and understands a little better. I'm really looking forward to all the fun Eric and I are going to have with Mia!
1- Go to a farm and visit the animals (plus purchase some yummy veggies/pumpkins for baking)!
2- Get crafty and make Mia's Halloween costume (just kidding, I'll only be making a small part of it, ha!)
3- Bake Fall goodies!
4- Pumpkin patches. Wagon hay rides. Hot chocolate. etc
5- Paint pumpkins with Mia to put on our door step. (This one is a big deal for me because it's so hard for me to let Mia get dirty, but I know she will love it! Also, I don't even know what paint to buy? Ha! Guess I'll be googling!)
6- Take Mia trick-or-treating, even if it's just to a couple homes. I know she would LOVE it!
7- I just realized that I should probably try and teach Mia to say "Trick or Treat" :) Wish me luck!
8- Clean out my gosh, dang home! I put this on every bucket list yet I never make it happen. I need to yard sale my junk asap!
9- Try and prep for Christmas and Mia's birthday as much as possible. December is the craziest month for me now that Mia's birthday falls during the month, along with Christmas! So I'm really hoping to have mostly everything taken care of before the month even begins.
10- Soak up every second with our quickly growing babe! Last year we really had a blast, but in the back of my mind I was heart broken with every second that passed, knowing that we were getting closer and closer to her first birthday. I don't know why I had such a difficult time with that milestone, but it really killed me inside! So this Fall? My goal is to not have a care in the world and look at the world through Mia's eyes. This is gonna be the funnest Fall/Halloween, ever!
