Fall To Do List




You really can't beat Buffalo, New York for Fall. I'm not a huge fan of fall. I get depressed about the end of summer... And the need to put a snow brush in my car. But one of the things I really want to do for Maddie is teach her to enjoy all the little occasions throughout life, including the passage of seasons.

So I'm putting together a Fall To Do List to remind myself of the things I do like about the season.

Fall To Do List:
  • Bake pumpkin-y things
  • Make thankful turkeys
  • Go to Beckers
  • Have a fondue dinner night
  • Make doughnuts
  • Go on a hay ride
  • Collect leaves
  • Decorate for fall
  • Go on a walk in Forest Lawn Cemetery
  • Have a football day with a football dinner
  • Carve a pumpkin
  • Roast pumpkin seeds
  • Go on a walk to the Japanese Gardens
  • Collect pinecones and acorns
  • Scuff through leaves and take a leaf shower
  • Watch the Wizard of Oz on Halloween
  • Dress up for Halloween
  • Watch Charlie Brown
  • Smash acorns!
  • Drink a Pumpkin Spice Latte
  • Go to Howl OWeen at the Zoo

    Now if I can just get Maddie to ditch her summer dresses. This child is a regular Zooey Deschanel. Embrace pants, my child!
