Its that time of year! The leaves are changing color and will soon fall, covering our yards with beautiful colors of orange and brown. The nice cool, fresh air… the windy afternoons… It’s my favorite season, except for the allergies, of course!
Everyone has their traditions as we begin the season. My family likes pumpkin patches! Yes, you read that correctly – plural! We like to go to MANY pumpkin patches, take a bunch of pictures of the kids, get face paintings, and pony rides!
We also enjoy finding the PERFECT pumpkin! Every year, we look all over for the perfect pumpkin. Each one of the kids must have their very own and every year we end up with pumpkins from Aldi! They always have the best ones!
We then search for the best image to carve on our pumpkins! Of course, this lucky Yamaroody Mama has to clean out the pumpkins. Yep, all 3… and then, I get to carve one since my little guy is still too young. Oh! And let’s not forget the search for the perfect costume!
The Fall is the start of the holidays for all of us and no matter what your traditions may be, we are the ones that set the standards for our families. We are the ones that make the Holidays for our kids. When they are all grown and begin their own families and traditions, they will recall everything that we have done and maybe pass it on to their own children. They, of course, will add their own traditions and make their own memories, just like we all have. However, they will have things that will never be forgotten.
Let’s enjoy the Holidays as a family. Let’s enjoy the little things in life and don’t forget to have a Yamaroody time!
