Today is the first day of Fall! Woohoo! Thanks to a wonderful friend's brilliant idea, we have started a new family tradition to welcome in this perfect season . . . CANDY! We bought candy corn and peanuts, mixed them together, and we've enjoyed snacking on these little treats throughout the day. Tomorrow, it's going to be gone, but today, the FIRST day of Fall, we're going to snack to our hearts' content. :) However, I overestimated how much we'd eat, so we decided to make little gift jars to giveaway at church tomorrow.
This first picture has absolutely nothing to do with this post, except it's just so adorable not to share! Mary takes ballet on Saturdays and Anna likes to come, too, and pretend to be in her class. Next Summer, Anna will be old enough to begin her own lessons. They both love dance, which is super-fun because I love dance, too! Anyway, Mary's giving Anna a sweet little kiss before going to class this morning.
Okay, here we go. . . Mary and Anna are coloring some pumpkin printables that we're using for the gift tags.
No, Anna, don't eat the orange marker! Please tell me your littles do this, too. Ick!
I let Mary take the candy corn and peanut mix and funnel it into small canning jars. And, yes, she is wearing her Greek goddess dress again. ;)
Quick and easy! That's how we (try!) to roll. ;)
Mary can write an F and L, so she almost wrote her first word (yes, I did the A). And how cute is our Frisky Cat! She was taking such a sweet nap while I was taking pictures of the gift jars. We adore this kitty cat!
Happy Fall, Y'all!
