Halloween is over, and boy was it fun. Mike and I spent the whole day baking while the kids were at school. We made three pumpkin pies, froze 6 bags of pumpkin and 3 bags of pumpkin pie mix and puree to use over the coming weeks, and then made ribs for dinner. This was after making sausage rolls, and an apple pie. We clearly love to eat, especially all of the fall goodies. Once the kids were home from school, fed, and a Halloween movie watched, we headed out to trick-or-treat. Mike couldn't help but get dressed up in costume to scare our neighborhood friends as they came by to collect candy. If you follow me on Instagram, my Insta Stories should still be live for the rest of the day.
The weather is actually beginning to feel a little like fall too. After being in the 100's last week, this week has been much cooler in the 60's and 70's. It's perfect! Although we are still waiting patiently for rain which seemed to successfully dodge our house yesterday. We've been getting into the fall spirit though and adding a little fall decor. Last week the kids and I made this fall paper chain garland, but the best part is that even though we made it in fall colors and prints it can be left up year round to remind everyone of the things we are grateful for.
I'm sharing the free printable, and details on how to make this fall garland over at MyPrintly.
