Over the past two weeks it has been all about fall around here. Leaves, pumpkins, harvesting gardens, and more leaves!

We have made are more contact paper and leaf collages to hang in the window. On a particularly busy day for the daycare we made collages of fall coloured material and yarn. Lots of baking has been going on. I used up all the green tomatoes to make 2 apple-tomato pies, 1 bunt cake, 2 loaves, 4 dozen muffins, and froze the ones that ripened. I'm now working on the apples next.
One day we went to Parkside Farms with our cousins E and baby J. The children all picked out some larger pumpkins to decorate. When we got home we made fun faces on the pumpkins with playdough. It was neat to be able to take it off and start again. Then we pulled out some paint, glue and glitter for the kids to go wild! TJ and MJ are so proud of their creations. Cousin E made a great start on her large pumpkin, and even baby J liked playing with his.

I'll be linking up to some great sites during the week. I encourage you to check them out for more wonderfully inspiring ideas!
