I have been waiting and waiting for the weather to cool down so we can do some fall themed activities...its hard to accept the fact that its fall when you live in a state where its still 90 degrees during the day!
I decided to hang a bunch of fall themed items from our tree:
Paper Leaves from the Dollar Tree
Pinecones that we picked from the State Park
And some upper and lower case H's that I cut out of cardstock, since this is our letter of the week.
Here is how it looked:
Princess was EXCITED when she walked out the front door and saw everything dangling from the tree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Surprisingly she went right for all the H's and put them in a basket:
Oh, I also hung this cool burlap envelope that I got at Hobby Lobby. Find it HERE.
I hid some small pumpkins and a few cookies in there:
Enjoying the cookies:
I realize this is a pathetic amount of hay and WISH I had bought a bale of it. Unfortunately there was no way it was going to fit in my car AND it was 12 bucks. I couldn't see myself paying that for something I was only going to use once, so I talked the guy at the market into selling me a grocery bag full for a dollar.
Princess has taken a particular interest in gourds lately:
This is how it looked from a kid perspective. Pretty cool I'd say:
My little guy spent most of his time staring at that hay. It was like he was afraid of it. That kind of makes sense because he is TERRIFIED of horses. I think that hay smell reminded him of a horse!
I got this little newspaper turkey at Hobby Lobby too and I think it is so stinking cute!
Im starting to realize that the more kids you have, the less likely it is to get a photo where everyone is looking at the camera.
Princess became very protective of her gourds. Sister kept taunting her by placing leaves and pinecones in the basket with the gourds. She took a fit and threw them out!
Getting rid of all non-gourds:
Then she counted them AND then they came into the house with us...
These are my favorite photos of the day:
