Fall is the favorite time of year in our neck of the woods. For Drake and I a large part of our history together is embedded in the autumn months. We fell in love in the fall, got married in the fall, found out we were expecting our first child in the fall, we welcomed our second child in the fall. Almost every year (with the exception of when I had Trent) we have taken a trip in the fall. It's usually to a city where the season change is more drastic and we can travel on foot to explore. This year is not looking promising for a trip, but we are still embracing all the traditions of fall here at home.
Fortunately for my kids and unfortunately for my waste line, I love to bake and feel extra inclined when the weather turns cooler. Since our apple pie on Friday, we have made pumpkin muffins and sugar cookies. Sugar cookies are a household favorite. Rolling out the dough, cookie cutters, frosting and sprinkling, the kids LOVE it!! I LOVE watching them.
Looking forward to many more baking days ahead. Trying out new recipes and "falling" back on old ones.
