First Day of Fall * Autumnal Equinox

It's the first day of fall. How do you celebrate and decorate for the changing of the season? Here are some of my favorite fall traditions my kids and I have gathered throughout the years. As the cooler weather sets in warm flavors and colors set the scene. I hope you enjoy these as much as we do.

My very first blog post ever was for this Microwave Caramel Apple Recipe. That was 9 years ago! We make these Caramel Apples every year without fail. I wrap up the extra caramel into bite sized caramels to eat later.

My mom has a split tree. It's half red delicious and half golden delicious apples. These Turtle Caramel Apple Nachos are a great recipe to use a mix of fall apples.

My delicious Harvest Apple Pie is a mix of a crust topped and crumble topped pie. I need to make some of this pie today to celebrate the first day of fall and  a big basket of freshly picked apples. I have the no fail easiest Pie Crust Recipe too!

One of my all time favorite crafts for kids in the fall is making these simple Fall Leaf Wreaths from found items you already have on hand. It's a great time to explore outside with your kids in the cool fall air.

Painting some pumpkins to decorate the house is a great kids activity. Everyone will love to join in crafting. I used puff paint to make these Gilded and Faux Studded Pumpkins. 

With the weather getting cooler cozy up with a bowl of my mom's White Chicken Chili. This recipe is a family favorite. It can be make on the stove top or in a slowcooker.

Or if you prefer a tomato based chili my Chipotle Chili Recipe has a nice smokey flavor to it. I set out an assortment of toppings to make it a Chili Topping Bar dinner.

Happy Autumn Time!
