falling for fall

Last year I posted on September 22, 2009 about how I was Falling for Fall!!  Hayden was wearing pants for the first time, and Layla and I busted out the fuzzy warm socks.Then a post or two after that I posted a few of my favorite fall things.   

I started thinking...maybe if I post about the things I am loving...the wonderful fall temps will follow.  A girl can hope right?!  I am ready to say bye bye to this Texas heat!

My favorite thing of course: PUMPKINS!

Hayden is picking one out last year...he looks so little.
I love pumpkin! Pumpkin smell, pumpkin pie, muffins and pumpkin drinks! 

Can I get a yum yum! Nothing says FALL like these little vanilla flavored goodies.

Layla has already asked for carmel apples rolled in sprinkles! 
This is a picture of her munching on a carmel apple 2 years ago....she is so little.

Why do all my favorite fall things have to do with food?  HA!

We are ready for the State Fair of Texas!  And if you are from DFW or Texas you know that Big Tex makes his appearance the 1st week of fall.  This year will be so much fun since the kids are older.  And once again it is all about the food.  I love corn dogs and fried cheesecake.  Yum!

Mums, mums and more mums.
The picture below is a shot of my mums from last year.  I am sad, because they are so pretty.
This year I got yellow.  I hope the yellow ones can be just as pretty :)

Open windows...enough said.

And last but certainly not least....

Nothing screams fall like football!  I love football :)

Are you having fall weather in your neighborhood right now? 

What are you doing to fall for fall?

It is gonna be 90 today and I have the air on...sigh. It's supposed to cool down on Saturday and I can't wait. Fall food is really good, I must are not alone. I'm making apple crisp this weekend. I'm going to plant mums this year for the first time and I can't wait. Football is the best too! Bring on Fall.

Yep. This Florida weather has got. to. go. But the evenings have been pretty. Warm but more outside weather to hang out and play in the yard with the kids. Loved your lists. And bring on the candy corn and caramel apples! My absolute favorite time of year. And I love the pumpkin photo because it looks like Hayden is de-stemming the pumpkin. So sweet.

I love all those things about fall too...and I am so ready for the fall weather to get here. We are still in the 90's every day, and I really think it had cooled down some by this time last year!

I can't wait for that fall weather to hit either!!! I've always want to go to the state fair, maybe one day!

When I first saw the picture of Hayden and the pumpkins I was jealous, and thinking "What?? They're already picking pumpkins in Texas while it's so hot here in California??" haha I'm excited for fall and can't wait for all the yummy food that comes along with it.

I am baking an apple pie today and for some reason that makes me think about fall. Thanks for sharing! Have a great weekend.
