 Yes!  For us it's a good way to heat up the house!

Ok, I'm going to really do this exercise with my kids, but here's my personal bucket list (it's what, 90% food?):

pumpkin pie with cranberry topping
pumpkin biscuits
pumpkin pancakes
apple pies
halloween crafts
thanksgiving crafts
pumpkin patch
apple orchard
wear sweaters again
homemade candies
rid the freezer of the summer ice cream (by eating, of course)
fill the freezer with things like meatloaf and casseroles
homemade bread

I'm sure the kids' list is a little different.  Though they'll enjoy the fruits of my labor.  :)

This is such a great idea.  I think I will have to do this with DS.  I only have a couple right now, but I will add to it when I have talked to DS.

Corn Maze

Make Halloween Decorations

Go to a Pumpkin Patch

Carve some awesome pumpkins (we never carve them, but I want to give it a try this year)

Lots of Nature Hikes

Geocaching in other towns around us


I don't bake, but all of the previous posts are making me want to start!  LOL

This is such a fun activity. My kids will love doing this...I'll post our list once we do it.

I do know at least the "basics" or I guess our traditions...apple picking, pumpkin picking, pumpkin carving, trick or treating, Thanksgiving dinner at home with DHs family, dessert with my family (unless we are not allowed!)...I'm sure I'm missing some, the kids can fill the rest in :)
