Getting into the Season

Each September as the leaves begin to turn and the air takes on a crisp feel, I gather the last of my vegetable garden's bounty and pack away my light and airy summer decor. 

Autumn is my favorite season.  I love all the fall things.  I love pumpkin patches, apple orchard visits, chili in a crockpot, Saturday football games, and large piles of fallen leaves for jumping. 

I feel often autumn gets overlooked in our rush to get ready for Christmas.  We often decorate our homes for Halloween and as soon as that's over we start pulling out our Christmas decorations.  For our family autumn is a special season. Yes, we love dressing up for Halloween and carving pumpkins. 



This will be my first Thanksgiving as a true empty-nester.  My youngest son left for college this last August. For the last twenty or so years, I have prepared the Thanksgiving meal.  But, this year just weeks after my son left for college, my in-laws move here close to us. 

We are for the first time in a long while, having a truly big family Thanksgiving.
