We had a wonderful time tonight--not trick or treating, per se, but instead at an old fashioned All Hallow's Eve bonfire extravaganza! We had treat stations for all the kids to go around and fill up their small baskets and bags, caramel apples, popcorn balls, a spooky woods walk, hay rides and lots and lots of fun in the mud.
Earlier this morning we made our farmers' market trip and loaded up on lots of yummy fall veggies, all in costume. Isla is having a hard time right now and is not the most cooperative subject when it comes to anything other than completely candid photos. But! She's really cute so we forgive her.

Inspired by the Usbourne Book of the Seasons I created a simple leaf stencil for Liam and I to practice coloring our fall leaves.
My demonstration leaf is on the left and his first attempt is on the right. I think his interpretation is much more true to the spirit of the season!
We placed these in his nature journal--a simple sketchbook we've been working on, adding any inspiration or fun nature-inspired activities as the mood strikes us.
These are leaf prints we made from collected leaves last week.

On Thursday, we took advantage of Ryan's vacation to visit a close pumpkin farm and apple house.

She loves butterflies. Loves. Adores. And when her grandmother found the perfect butterfly jacket? Needless to say she was smitten.
Her new boots for the impending weather are also adored. I love the little things that mark the change of seasons in Kentucky. Flashes of red and gold amidst the green background. A new jacket and new boots that can be put to use immediately. The cool, crisp air that smells just barely of a fire burning brightly somewhere. I think this girl will be just as enamored with Fall as her mother--even if only for the great wardrobe it provides.
