Old School Blogging: Fall

1. What Fall traditions do you have? We go to pumkin patches and trick or treat of course! Someone in my Mom's Group usually hosts  Halloween recipe.

2. What is your favorite fall recipe? My award-winning chili recipe, and white chicken chili and yummy, soul warming crockpot soups. I don't actually follow recipes which makes sharing them quite difficult.

3. What is a favorite Fall photo (or photos) you’ve  taken? This was a HUGE challenge since I don't have access to most of my photos and the ones I do have are incredibly disorganized. Therefore I give you a random assortment of fall photos.

Our annual pilgrimage to Walt's Pumpkin Patch--when she was eight.

Beware of mad scientist..when she was 10.

Beautiful bush (or was it a tree?) in front of our rental.

At my sister's ranch

A firefighter, a hippie and a secret service agent walk into a bar....wait walk around the neighborhood.

Cutest pirate ever.

4. Football – love it or hate it (maybe it steals your hubby away)? I don't understand it and I find it to be very annoying and time consuming.
5. What was your favorite Halloween costume as a kid?  We always created our own.  I  loved dressing up like an old lady. One year I went as Dolly Parton...if only I had seen the foreshadowing in that!
6. Pumpkins or Ghosts or both? Pumpkins. My kids are very irritated that we don't do scary/gross Halloween decorations. When your mom sends 12 years teaching preschool that is what happens.
7. What’s your favorite fall fashion item (boots? scarves? sweaters?, etc.) Definitely boots. I am ALWAYS hot so you won't find me sporting sweaters.
8. Is “leaf pile jumping” your thing or not?  LOVE!!!
9. Is “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” a must-watch at your house?  It use to be...but these darn kids keep growing up.  

10. What are you going to be for Halloween this year (or your kids…)?  Not sure yet but I usually try to incorporate my big hair! Here are some pics from last year:

Ha so many fun costumes in this post ! happy fall !

Jennifer said...

Wow. That is some seriously big hair. LOL I like ghosts and non-scary decorations too.

Robbie K said...

I choose costumes based solely on the bigness of hair. The year before I was Crazy Cat Lady...too bad I can't find that picture!

Leslie said...

OMG, that last picture is the BEST. And if that’s how creative you are, I can’t wait to see what costume you pull together this year! (and yes, boots are the best…great for the cool mornings but not too hot for warm-ish afternoons!)

LOVE your Walmart picture, and your daughter as a mad scientist!

This is great. My kids have definitely crossed over into the "throw your costume together from the closet the day of Halloween" department. Thank goodness. You've inspired me to come up with a get-up to answer the door with. Though for me some days I feel like my photo will show up in the People of Walmart without even trying.

Elaine Alguire said...

Oh my gosh, your costume from last year - HA HA HA HA!! You need to go as that again! ;)

Love all the costume pics, so fun!

Tamara Camera said...

#4 is perfect. That's how I feel about football too.
Your kids are awesome. And your daughter is so gorgeous! I know I've told you that before.
These are fabulous costumes.

Adrienne said...

Oh my goodness! Your people of Walmart costume is awesome! I have a picture somewhere of my boys standing by a huge height measuring thing (love my vocabulary on that one) too.
