Tuesday’s Blog Hop–Fall Family Fun

100_2960Fall has become my favorite time of the year.  I enjoy the beautiful colors of the changing leaves– even if they are dying.  I welcome the coolness of the mornings and evenings.  Our family enjoys the usual autumn traditions, such as football, fall festivals, county fairs, pumpkin carving or painting, baking, outdoor fires, and trick-or-treating.

My daughter, Brandy, and I enjoy decorating our yards for fall/Halloween.  Our houses are next-door to each other, so we enjoy each other’s decorations.   We also enjoy getting together and baking goodies.  We like to decorate  cakes, cookies or cupcakes.

Most of the men in our family enjoy building a fire outside at night and sitting around it talking.  The women don’t enjoy this and usually end up staying inside of the house.  There is nothing my husband likes any better than building a large fire and watching it burn!  Clint has a small fire pit in his yard, close to their porch.  The men sometimes sit on the edge of the porch and watch the fire burn.  

Madison’s family usually carves a jack-o-lantern, but this year they did pumpkin painting.  Madison enjoyed that because she got to participate.  I enjoy seeing what creations that her family comes up with.  Their pumpkins are always cute.

This year I am throwing a costume party for our family.  There will be about twelve or thirteen of us.  Everyone is supposed to dress up in some way.  We did this about 25 years ago and had the best time.  We will have sandwiches or hotdogs,  and decorative fall finger foods. Then we will play some games that I have planned.  Of course, we will have a prize for the best costume, too.  It is so much fun to see what kind of outfit everyone comes in, then take pictures. 

Some of the games that I have planned are “pass the pumpkin”…where I play music while the pumpkin is passed from person to person.  If you are holding the pumpkin when the music stops, you are out.  Last one out wins.  We will also have a “mummy making contest” with toilet paper.  We will divide into two teams, then each team will race to see who can wrap a person in toilet paper and make them into the best looking mummy.  I’m still planning the rest of the games…so I guess I’d better stop blogging and get busy!  Thanks so much for “hopping ” by.  Happy Fall Ya’ll!

  3. Kathy, I love a bonfire. I just posted about that lol… Nothing more relaxing than sitting in the country, where it is quiet and watching a fire burn. The quiet and the warmth is priceless. I always enjoy all your pics. “We” (You and I ) would have a blast sitting around a bonfire talking for hours. Blessings,
