Letters to My Daughters | Fall Fun

Dear Girlies,

September and October have come and gone, and November is more than half over.  Fall is waning, but it’s been a good one this year.  We’ve enjoyed the nice weather, the beautiful foliage (it’s so much nicer here than it ever was in MS, and you love to rake up and jump in the vibrant leaves that have fallen), watching football games, playing soccer, birthdays, and all the fun little fall activities that we’ve done.

Late last month, Daddy and I took Lilah and Ellie to the pumpkin patch.  That was the weekend Mere went to Chattanooga with Nana and Pop Pop to celebrate her birthday, so she missed our trip, but she had a fun trip all her own.  We try to go to the pumpkin patch every year, and we picked a wonderful day to go this year.  We had a wonderful time seeing all the animals in the barn and the larger livestock outside, playing in the corn crib, bouncing in the bounce houses, sliding down the huge slides, wandering through the corn maze, and riding the cow train.  We had so much fun and did so many things that we didn’t make it out to the pumpkin field to pick pumpkins, but we found some nice ones in the farm shop to take home.

Everyone had a pumpkin, even Mere.

A few days later, you painted your pumpkins.  I think it worked out so much better than trying to carve them, and all three of you got to participate so I think you enjoyed it more.


Fall is our favorite season for so many reasons, and this year’s has been no different.  We still have a little more to experience and it’s full of events, like Janell’s wedding and Thanksgiving.

Winter will be here soon, perhaps we’ll get a little bit of snow to play in.  We’ll have to wait and see!

I love you, girlies!
