Vote for my post on Mom Blog Network

Welcome, Fall!

One of the best things I have ever done without realizing that what a good thing it was going to turn out to be, is to sign up for 's weekly newsletter by email. Y'all may know that I just love love LOVE to spend time and do things with my monsters, such as simple crafts (because, darn it, I am not a crafter at heart), baking, and simple science experiments (because, darn it, I am also not a scientist at heart. But I really get into Mythbusters, every episode of Magic School Bus ever made, and How It's Made. Does that count?).

When I opened this week's newsletter, I was thrilled with all the fun Autumn projects listed there and had to sing praises. From making leaf pattern prints for Pre-k aged monsters, to making pumpkin pasta (yummmm!!) for high school aged monsters, and more crafts and experiments for every age in between, this site has got it going on! This takes all the headache out of figuring out what fun things I can do with the monsters each weekend. And I'm all for less headache!

Exploring all the changes in nature as the weather turns is one of my favorite things to do with the monsters, no matter what the season. The air feels almost electric with change and anticipation of things to come. A day spent making cookies, jumping into leaf piles, visiting a pumpkin patch to choose the perfect one for a jack o'lantern, or playing with gingerbread scented homemade playdough is heaven this time of year. Reading books while snuggled up together in a quilt, or watching "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!" makes me smile.

Grab the chance to make memories with your monsters, and have a lot of fun doing it! Happy Saturday, y'all!
