T,W and Y is for...



Today we are finishing up the
ABC series.

First up is T

T is for...

Thanksgiving and Turkeys--two
of my favorites.

It is a time for family and friends
to gather and celebrate the things
they are thankful for.


 

T is for...

Trick or Treaters

Soon these characters will be
knocking on your door. Are
you ready? Do you have your
treats? Me? No not yet.




W is for...

The World Series

I am so excited to say that our
Boys in Blue are in the series
after a 29 year drought! I
CANNOT wait!!!


 

W is for...

Webs

Not really impressed with
the characters that make
these!




And last but not least.

Y is for...

Yellow

Yellow mums, yellow leaves,
yellow gourds  there is a lot
of yellow in the Fall.

I hope that you have enjoyed
The ABC's of Fall. It has
been fun coming up with things
for each month. Some letters did
not have anything to go with
them. As always if you come
up with something, please
share with us.

Coming up: Halloween and
a bit of what we have been
up to lately.

R is for AND S is for...

 

R is for ...

Raking Leaves

I am sure that this is EVERYONE's
most favorite activity in Fall! When
my Mom was little they could burn
theirs, she loved the smell of burning
leaves. Our fair city will not allow
us to do this so rake, rake, rake is
what we do.


 

R is for...

Recipes

Fall is the time of year when
we start thinking about those
comfort foods we love. Fall is
also a time when we cook more
and concentrate on trying new
recipes. Of course, there are the
upcoming holidays to think about
too.


 

S is for...

September

The month when Fall arrives.
School begins for most and
days begin to get shorter.




S is for...

Scarecrows

We saw this one at our
favorite pumpkin farm.
I liked her because you
don't see many female
scarecrows. She is all
dolled up to greet the
guests.


As you see I have skipped Q.
nothing came to the brain for
it. If you think of something,
please share it with us.

Tomorrow will be T

P is for...



P is for...

Can you guess?

PUMPKINS!


 

Each year we stop at Faulkner's
Pumpkin Farm on our way back
from the Barn Sale. It is a great
place.


 

Big ones, little ones.


 

Tall ones, flat ones.


 

White ones.


 

GREAT BIG GIGANTIC
ones.


 

P is for...

Popcorn

Movie popcorn, microwave
popcorn, air popped, and stove
top popped. In addition to these
you can dress up these little
kernels for a party by adding:

Carmel and Chocolate
drizzle with peanut butter
cups.

Sprinkle with White Cheddar
Cheese.

Bacon-pop corn is bacon grease
and sprinkle with cooked bacon.

Thanksgiving corn-Pour maple
on maple syrup and add walnuts.

Garlic Parmesean-Use garlic infused
oil and sprinkle with cheese.

Nothing traditional about those!


 

P is for...

Pie

Specifically pumpkin.

Not so much a fan of
this pie but I know it
is a fave and a tradition
at this time of year.




P is for...

Playoffs--Baseball

We are so excited here in
the Kansas city Metro area
that our boys in blue are in
the playoffs this year!

Game one against Baltimore
tonight!

Let's Go Royals!!!!!!


Nothing for Q next up will be R
probably on Monday, we have a
busy weekend ahead of us.

M is for AND N is for...

 

M is for...

Harvest Moon

This year's Harvest Moon was
early--Sept. 8-9. It was a Super
Moon too!

A Harvst Moon is the moon
closest to the Autumanl Equinox.

Back in the day, the light from the
moon helped farmers gather their
crops.


 

M is for...

Mums

These come in a variety of
colors. I prefer the burgudy
or the fuchisa colored ones.
I have a small burgundy one
on my porch, looking to get a
couple more. These are
a real reminder that Fall is
here.


 

N is for...

The month of November

A good month if you happen
to have a birthday in it. :)
Thanksgiving is good too.
Bring on the mashed potatoes!!!!




N is for...

Nuts

No, not my state of mind!

These remind me of my Mom,
in the Fall she would by these
by the bag fulls and then get
out the little silver nutcracker,
the "pick" and the bowl for 
shells. Then she would put them
on the coffee table for all to enjoy.


Come on back tomorrow for O.

J is for...

 

J is for...

Jack Frost

When I was little my Mom would tell
me that Jack Frost was the one who
made all the leaves turn colors.
He would kiss each one and it would
turn colors. We would drive down a
particular road and as you went down
it you could see the different colored
tree tops showing where Jack Frost
had been. I would have her tell me
this story each Fall as we drove down
the road.

Of course, we know that he is responsiible
for making our windows Frosty each day.
Right???


J is for...

Jack-o-lanterns

I love a good Jack-o-lantern,
it is fun to see how people carve
them. I am not too creative when
it comes to carving these. Mine
are pretty basic. I admire the
more elaborate ones.

***I am a day behind due to the
baseball playoffs, got to watching
our team (Kansas City Royals)
and forgot to write a post yesterday.

Tomorrow is K but at this time I
have nothing for it, so we will see.
