It’s autumn, really?

It’s still hot during the day here, but it sure does feel wonderful in the evenings. I’m so excited that it’s fall! Finally! I wish I lived in a climate that allowed for more sweaters, scarves, toasted marshmallows, and other fun fall things (not to mention snow in winter).


I’ve tried to incorporate a few fall items in our craft section. This acorn craft turned out to be a little complicated for a 2-year-old. It is super cute and he got to spread some glue and sprinkle some glitter. Basically, what we’ve done is take 2 sheets of scrapbooking paper and cut a front and a back out. Then we switch the tops (or the bottoms, depending on your point of view) and glue them together. These are the cutest acorns!

In November, we’re going to make a turkey. I have it mostly cut out so far. I decided that for the feathers, we would throw in a few pieces of some of the scrapbook paper prints.

Soon-to-be turkey feathers!

We’ll see how it all turns out. Right now I have more acorns to cut out! Have a great day everyone!

Peace and love.
