fall bucket list. the 2014 version.

Oh how I am a sucker for all things in a list format. If you can involve Fall that is absolute perfection. Lists help organize the chaos both in real life and in my head. Fall kicks off the best time of the year (in my opinion) and I go a bit nuts for the next four months as I'm sure you've heard a time or two.

As I prepare this list my home is of course fully decorated for the season (duh). Casper is on in the background and I'm smelling my lovely Autumn Wreath candle. It's the start of something wonderful. Hopefully this year the weather will stay nice and fall-like and won't hit highs in the 80's in November. I'm looking at you 2013. Side eye.

- Anxiously awake another birth of another niece in October! Yay!
- Pumpkin picking and a hayride through an orchard with a baby and some family and some friends.
- Pick apples with my madre and my newly available sister.
- Start preschool and spend only one day whimpering in the parking lot mourning the loss of my baby girl.
- Carve the above pumpkins.
- Figure out life and a routine now that I am a one-child mama three mornings a week. Toddler Gym? Library? What shall it be?
- Corn Cob Acres yet again! Too bad I can't really bounce on those things again. Hmmm...
- Decide upon a Halloween costume for each kid. Then have a successful Trick-or-Treat night now that we don't have the neighbor loves right next door. Tear.
- Gettysburg day trip with whoever is up to the task.
- Hit up the Manheim Farm Show more than once because now! I am a Manheim resident! Lunch anyone?
- Why not hit up the Farm Show parade while I'm at it?
- Happy Hauntings at DW quite a few times and definitely once when it's night-time. Mama needs her candy.
- Actually make a stove top potpourri thing. It made the list last year but didn't make reality.
- Fall movies! Casper, Hocus Pocus (which was a first time for me last year and I can see it becoming a regular in my holiday movie rotation), Spookley the Square Pumpkin, and maybe a Harry Potter or three.
- Try really hard to love what the blogging community calls a PSL. I really want to love it. I do. It's unlike me not to. I shall try again.
- Get a cute fall shot of the kids.

And of course for historical purposes my look how they have grown!

  1. What adorable babies!!! We love pumpkin picking/carving too!!!!

  2. I'd be up for a day trip to Gettysburg! Seems like forever ago that we went for Matt's bday. David was just an infant! Sniff :( great list. I'll have to make one of my own now that I'll have more time on my hands :)

  3. That picture is a framer for sure! Gallery wall maybe? And I am not down with the PSL, nope nope nope. But what a fun list, I am so excited for Halloween!

  4. Yes to all if this. So much fall fun!

  5. You know I adore this list! It's my goal to make it to Gettysburg BEFORE the end of fall, but with football I'm not sure it's going to be possible. Also, where was that FANTASTIC shot of the kiddos taken? SO GORGEOUS!

  6. omgosh the picture! The tininess! I saw it on bloglovin a few days ago and squeed at her hair. SO cute. I've never liked PSL, but I basically needed to have one this year...blame blogland. And I actually enjoyed it. So maybe this is your year!

  7. I dig this list. I'd like to join you on some of these adventures. Wah distance.

  8. LOVE your list!! So fun! :) I'm super excited for all things fall- and Hocus Pocus is a definite must-watch! And your littles are just too too cute!
