Fall Bucket List, 2014

Already, our home is completely decked out in all of its finest Fall adornments. We already baked our first batch of Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies (so good), and mums have been purchased and potted. Thanks to Labor Day weekend and an extra day off work, we're off to a good start.

2. Day trip... leaf viewing.
3. Visit a new Pumpkin Patch
4. Put our new football tailgating grill to use in the Dome parking lot
5. Host the family for pumpkin carving and chili eating
6. Try a new soup or two
7. Go to the Fall Festival at the Arboretum
8. Buy lots of Mums and hay for the deck.
9. Purchase a new cozy flannel blanket for the living room.
10. Get family pictures taken
11. Take the boat out to Big Woods Lake after the leaves have changed
12. Make some home-made fall stove-top potpourri
13. Bake home-made pumpkin bread
14. Warm caramel apple sider in the slow cooker
15. Pick apples from an apple tree
