Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things I Love About Fall

1. the leaves changing colors

2. football tailgates

3. wearing sweatpants again

4. flannel sheets

5. the abundance of apples

6. the smell of apple butter cooking in the crock pot

7. little boys in sweaters

8. handing out Halloween candy with my good WV neighbor and watching the kids shuffle up the street with their winter coats over their costumes.

9. the chance of a snow day

10. Thanksgiving dinner

11. fresh apple cider

12. the nip in the air and the breezy days

13. mums

Of course, I get nothing but the apples and Thanksgiving dinner here.
Fall just isn't as much fun in the deep south.

I also love 1, 2, 4 (flannel sheets are my FAVORITE), 9 (although there's not really a chance here), 11, 12, and 13.

happy TT!

I like #12 the best. As long as Mom opens the windows and I can sit in them and smell the fresh air. I like that.

I love fall too. I read your Tuesday post and except for the throwing up part, it sounds exactly like my life. Do you hum the theme song from Noggin, even when the kids aren't aroun too? :D

Yes, she DID buy me a stroller! I don't have it yet,it's still on the big brown truck somewhere. But when I do, we'll post some pictures.

And it's for critters only, no human babies.

It's too bad you live so far away or you could share with my sweet Phoebe. She would love to get out and about too.

Fall is my favorite season of the year. I love pretty much everyhting you have listed, except for the fact that there is very little chance of any snow days around here in NC!
