Simple Weekend Beauty

Sweet little idea for your weekend - find a small pie pumpkin or faux pumpkin at the craft store and grab a Sharpie! Decorate your pumpkin for your fall decorating enjoyment!

Annual Avonlea Picnic

Our family is big on tradition and it seems that Fall is especially full of special things we enjoy doing together! I've been eager to carry on the tradition of watching some Anne and having cozy food along with!

Typically we do this for lunch or dinner and I don't think we've ever done a breakfast before but it just worked this time! My sister sent me a link to a free pancake mix and that was just the push I needed!

We had watched Anne of Green Gables this summer at my parents house, so watching the second movie seemed like a great choice. And ever since I saw a photo in a cookbook this summer with a little bunting on pancakes - I've wanted to try it for myself!

Working hard the day before to clean up yard debris, unpack, get housework taken care of and more was a good choice and after declaring that Family Work Day I promised the next day would be Family Fun Day if we got a lot done and worked well. It was the perfect reward! We did not have school, stayed in our pj's until noon and just enjoyed the lingering, slower pace.

Slow Day

Technically this was not a Slow Day but rather a slow hour or two! We did evacuate for Hurricane Irma though the storm turned and ended up not being as troublesome as we had initially anticipated. Still thinking of our friends in Florida who have had a much harder time of it due to the storm.

One of our evacuation days, all of the families who were together announced quiet time and Emily wanted to take a nap. So I took the other two and escaped outside for a little nature walk and fun, it was peaceful and just lovely.

And then an evening walk in the park!

Fun math game
I'm reading Gracelaced book - love!
