Fall was eventful and I'd be sad to see it go except: 1) we technically still have another three weeks of fall and 2) CHRISTMAS!!! Since I consider December it's own special season, I'm going to officially bid farewell to fall today with a little recap of the good, the bad, and the messy...all in numbers. Of course ;)
0 beds broken (but not for lack of effort).
Approximately 5 lbs of apples eaten weekly (mostly by Ez)
100% chance that if there is a leaf pile nearby my boys are stomping in it.
2 ponies ridden by two boys with very different opinions of said ponies.
2 official Halloween egg hunts which resulted in...
3,467 unofficial Halloween egg hunts until...
A dozen eggs disintegrated into rubbery, powdery nothingness.
Another 3,467 requests for more egg hunts.
4 foot radius covered in flour and baking powder after making muffins with my munchkins.
2 awestruck boys when they met Thomas and Percy (the trains).
1 child free Honeymoon weekend where it poured for...
2.5 out of 3 days but we still managed to see...
2 waterfalls and the most gorgeous fall foliage.
$200 - amount won during Honeymoon weekend.
$200 - amount lost during Honeymoon weekend. Sad face.
3 painting projects and only minimal amounts of paint eaten. Success.
4 trick or treating trips and only...
1 of them was a disaster. Success.
3 trips to pumpkin patches for...
8 porch pumpkins, of which...
2 were carved with exactly...
1 billion: approximate number of lights at Lumination.
4 miles wandering around lost and confused in a corn maze.
50 approximate trips to the playground.
3 rainy day puddle stomping walks.
A dozen family members gathered around the Thanksgiving table.
You were good to us, fall. Wishing for an equally magical Christmas season for us, and for all of you as well!
