    So fun! Will (and yourself and your boyfriend of course) is going to have a whale of a time!
    When is your next little one due?

  2. Susan says

    I noticed finish kitchen is not in there…will you be done??? What about the baby room? Are you freaking out yet?

    • says

      Well, the finished kitchen isn’t really ‘family fun’ :) It’s more like ‘never ending family to-do!”…and yeah, we haven’t even started with the nursery. And yes, both things freak me out. big time.

    Great list Katie!! We’ve already done the pumpkin patch, apple picking, hay ride and corn maze:) gotta get them in early here in WI before it eats too cold! When are you due again?

  4. says

    I love it! I have an 8 month old son, so this is his first Fall and as it is my favorite season, I AM SO EXCITED to do all the fun fall things!!!
    When is Baby Boy Bower due?!

  5. says

    Oh, you CANNOT post such a cute graphic without posting a little tutorial!!! (I mean, you CAN, but PLEASE!!!!)

    Great ideas, we have some we love too but I’ll definitely be stealing from yours! ;) You definitely need to try one of my favorites — carve a baby pumpkin, rub the inside of the lid with yummy baking spices and light it in your kitchen. Your house will smell A.MA.ZING!!!!

  6. Morgan says

    Sounds like a great list, especially the last one!! How do you make your thankful tree? It sounds like a great thing to do and with life being so crazy right now it would be a daily reminder of the many AMAZING things we do have!

      I plan on making it outta a branch and some spray paint and an old pot with rocks…we’ll hang leaves on it with our thankful items written on them :)

    do you want to have the nursery done for the arrival or are you not as concerned since the baby might be staying in your room at first? Will you do a baby pool? I’m guessing the 6th…only because it’s my birthday. :)

    • says

      I WISH! We both knew that we would have the baby stay with us for at least six months…so we weren’t overly concerned about finishing the nursery before the baby arrived….I thought we would at least START it. DOH! And yes, we are gonna do a baby pool with a pretty cool prize!

    waiting (fingers tapping) patiently for the kitchen reveal… i’m dreaming of how beautiful it will be… can’t wait.. but hey no pressure… hahahaha….

  9. Emily says

    Love fall family fun! We’ve gotten apples and pumpkins already up here in Upstate NY. Question- What is a pine cone bird feeder? Sounds like something my girls would really like:)

  10. Kristin says

    Nice! I’ve seen y do this for a couple of seasons and sort of let them slip by. With four sweet boys, I am realizing I need to be intentional. I know my 5yr old will hold me accountable. Going to make one of these tomorrow night! Thanks for the consistent reminder of planning. Looks like a good fall is coming your way!!

  11. says

    I just did our list, too! I kind of hope it stays the same from year to year–more like traditions. I plan on doing a Halloween tree–you know, so the Great Pumpkin can leave presents for all the good little boys and girls…small stuff, like Halloween pencils or other small craft supplies. My mom did this with us growing up and it’s lots of fun. (Okay, we did it for ALL holidays–Cupid can come…The Grand Leprechaun comes…)Sounds like something you’d enjoy, too being the gift-lover!

  12. Brenna says

    One of my favorite pic of our oldest is when I carved a big hole in a pumpkin and stuck her in it. Yes, I did stick her in a walmart sack so she didn’t get all gross! HA!

  13. Christine says

    Great list! Do you have any recommendations of pumpkin patches with hayrides, petting zoo, kid stuff in the Atlanta/N GA area?

    • says

      Corn Dawgs is the one nearest us that has all that…but it’s not in the Atlanta area…it’s in Loganville. And I’ve heard of one in the Gainesville area but I don’t know the name. Sorry I’m not much help!

    Sometimes I forget you’re prego because I’m not seeing monthly updates. ;) Seems like it went by so fast though. Exciting!!

  15. Abilu says

    I created my own list this weekend after remembering yours from last year. In addition to the activities you included, I have added eat sweet potatoes (namely cupcakes) and cranberries (in just about anything), buy a sweater, pick apples, and drink Pumpkin beer/late harvest wine. Enjoy this special season and congrats on your new baby!

  16. Hannah says

    Great list! Your list last year inspired me to do them for our family, we started with Summer Fun and I have just compiled our Fall/Winter list, I am not sure why I combined, but we have one heck of a list to complete thats for sure! So far have crossed off ‘cinema date’ my 2.5 yr old LOVED this, and last night we hit up the circus! Only another 40+ things to do!

  17. Courtney says

    Do you guys have a name picked out for baby Bower#2? Cant wait for the arivall. Sounds like a great fall ahead of you!

    • says

      We do but we don’t know what we are gonna call him yet so we are gonna wait till he’s born to figure that out (and then tell everyone).

    I was just talking to the hubs about making a list today. Fall is my favorite and I want to make the most of it. We want to take a trip to the mountains (North GA or maybe TN) to see some leaf-changing. Im definitely copying some of your ideas! I want to make an autumn wreath and have a photo shoot too! If you need an awesome place for a fall shoot let me know-I’ve got a place with big old barn, grassy fields, hay bales and a big john deer tractor! HAPPY FALL!

  19. cat says

    great addition to the “to-do” list! we all can’t wait to virtually meet your new lil main squeeze :)
    Our playgroup is making fall wreaths together…while the kids hopefully play and not insist on “helping” mama. Can’t wait to see what we all come up with- what did we do before Pinterest???
