update on the fall bucket list.

I think this will be the first time I will be this successful in a bucket list. We only have 2 things left to do...turkey apples and pumpkin patch {that one clearly isn't going to happen, I can't say I didn't try though!}. The bucket list was simple enough to not stress me out, and fun enough the kids wanted to keep checking things off.

I was worried about completing the play in a leaf pile, because we don't have many. One day when Savannah was at school I made a pathetic little pile for Devin, and he loved it. Total success.
I definitely had to up my game to make Savannah have fun. I raked our neighbors entire leaf stash into our yard for her. Phew, it took some work....even the LDS missionaries stopped to ask if they could help me. :) After all the transferring of leaves from yard to yard, the pile was still pathetic. I told Savannah that was as good as it was gonna be, and she was a happy little camper.
I surprised the kids one day with a tea party to cross another one of the things off {hot cocoa on a chilly night}. We even had little cookies, Savannah pulled out the fun hats, and those two played nicely for a good 30 minutes.
I hope that Rachel makes a few more of these simple bucket lists, because it added something fun to our Fall season. {hint, hint Rachel}.

Just in case you missed some of our other things we did on the bucket list...

Make a thankful tree.
Go on a nature walk.
Carve pumpkins.
Trick or treat.
Witches at Gardner Village.

You do such wonderful things with your children. Just think of the wonderful memories they will carry with them through life!

Can I tell how special I feel that you used my Fall Bucket List?! Seriously, I've had just as much fun seeing you complete the activities as my own family completing them! :-) I need to get working on that Winter list. Any ideas to add to the list?

we REALLY need to do a bucket list of sorts. We never get out and it would be so good for us!
