I know I’m really behind in posting recipes – but until I get back into the swing of things, I thought I would post a little update of how we’ve been celebrating fall here in the Spencer house!
We made these adorable little chocolate acorns for both Harrison’s and Taylor’s classmates… it was so easy and the kids loved helping out! You can find the tutorial here.
I printed out tags and stapled them in little baggies for the kids to share in class
Those of you who really know me, know how sentimental I am… about places, moments, memories and things… like this knife…
When Mike and I first started dating over 13 years ago – I so vividly remember carving our first pumpkin together – I remember the butterflies I felt with him – barely even knowing him at that time… still in that new dating, silly giggly stage… and I so remember this knife! He brought it over from his house to mine to carve our pumpkin… and I thought it was so sweet that he brought his own knife… and now it is OUR knife and he is using it today to carve a pumpkin with OUR children … okay roll your eyes… I know cheesy – but a sweet memory for me!!
Taylor insisted on wearing her new tutu, that her Nonnie bought her, out to the pumpkin carving festivities… (she also insisted on carrying out her brother’s Cars lunchbox)
And of course Mommy had to make sure she had her huge bow in her hair!
Our finished product!
(Harrison picked this pumpkin because of the “twisty top”)
When my mom comes to visit I often get a tsk over the fact that I can’t seem to find time to polish my silver (I hate polishing silver) … but I now have an excuse… it makes it look so much more spooky!!!
Taylor especially gets a kick out of the new spiders that have taken up Halloween residence at the house… she often points at them, and scrunches up her face, as she loudly squeals EWWWWW!
Found these fun paper balls and glittery skeletons at JoAnne’s (trying to not get too creepy here)
From our house to yours… Happy Fall!
