We really enjoyed creating and completing our Summer To-Do List. As a planner, I like to, well, plan, and the neurotic achiever in me likes to cross things off and measure progress. Apparently the hubby is being drawn to the dark side because he asked for a “Year 2 List”–aka, what fun things are we going to do in the time before Matty turns 2. Even that seems excessive to me, but there are some key traditions that I would like to start, and I do LOVE Fall. Enter: The Fall To-Do List. Dun Dun Dunnnn.
Our Family Fall Fun List
1. Dance the Chicken Dance at Oktoberfest (Zinzinnati)
2. Rake Leaves
3. Bake a Pumpkin Pie from Scratch
4. Go Trick-or-Treating
5. Put up a Halloween Tree
6. Decorate a Pumpkin
7. Pick a Pumpkin from a Pumpkin Patch
8. Go to an Apple Festival
9. Make Pinecone Bird Feeders
10. Make Homemade Applesauce
11. Go to a Football Game
12. Donate Goods to a “Drive” (ex. Hats or Canned Food)
I think that list should keep us plenty busy, yet not overwhelmed. I give us until Thanksgiving, since the Christmas madness begins that day!
