We took a long walk around the neighborhood today and even though there are houses with Christmas decorations up already, it was the most perfect fall day with leaves falling on us as we walked and a bright blue sky. It may still be a little too warm in Georgia to remind me of fall in New York but it's getting there!
It is tempting to start putting up Christmas decorations early but we have so much to be thankful for I can't let myself skip right over Thanksgiving.
Instead of rushing through my favorite time of year to get to Christmas decorating, I like to wait until the day after Thanksgiving to deck the halls and then I just leave it all up until February.
We took down most of the black and white Halloween decorations from the mantel and added some more pumpkins and pussy willows.
I finally changed our hallway flowers for fall and hung a fall wreath on the front door.
We went apple picking and drove north to a pumpkin patch.
We worked on some toddler friendly crafting including these Mod Podge leaves that I'm using in a project and a little handprint spider.
It was our first year with a little one old enough to trick or treat!
It may not be a NY fall but I'm grateful for every minute of it so far!
