My favorite time of the year has arrived.
And I am so excited to be able to actually cross some things off of my fall bucket list this year.
Last fall was crazy. We had just brought the twins home, were getting used to the swing of things, and were honestly just too out of it.
Sleep deprivation in the early months with twins is insane.
I have no clue how I made it through. Seriously none. I was up around the clock, every two hours. Before sleep training I think my longest stretch of sleep was three hours. And that only happened a couple times.
Even though it was just a few months ago that the twins were that small, it feels like it was so long ago. Maybe that is just something about parenthood? Everything is always going by way too slow, but then way too fast at the same time. I find myself constantly praying for the current season to get easier, just to open my eyes and realize I am in an entirely new season.
Current season? Near walking twins learning to throw tantrums. Not the easiest thing, but hey. At least I am getting enough sleep for it? Haha!
Because of the constant fog last fall, we didn’t do much.
The only big thing we did was carve out pumpkins for the twins to sit in for pictures. Which of course they hated. So that was just one big fail! But we do have the memories of that to stay with us.
Now that the sleepless fog has lifted and the twins are entering toddlerhood, I am super excited to dive into my fall bucket list! I am hoping to find things that we can do as a family every fall.
Creating family traditions is something I have always dreamed of doing. We had a few of them in my family growing up, such as new pj’s on Christmas Eve, picking out our dinner for our birthday and camping every August. The family norms were something my sister and I always looked forward to, and I hope to create the same kind of dynamic with my children.
Fall Bucket List for Families
Visit a pumpkin patch
Pick out pumpkins
Go for a hayride
Walk through a corn maze
Play with leaves
Visit a fall festival
Go apple picking
Try apple cider
Create fall crafts
Halloween movie day
Read three fall/halloween books
Play in pumpkin guts
Throw the football around
Try three new pumpkin foods
And then if you’re feeling adventurous like my husband and I, find a pumpkin large enough for your child to sit in, carve it out and take some pictures! We are going to try and do that one again this year. TRY! I hope we can do it!
What are some things on your fall bucket list? Or traditions in your family?
I would love to hear!
