Head over heels for fall!

Fall is by far my favorite season. I love breaking out the jeans and sweatshirts. Here in Illinois, fall seems to have almost bypassed us this year though. We are already shrugging into winter coats lately. Even though the temperature is a bit nippy, the leaves are still beautiful. I love hearing my little boys oh and ah over the crisp red, yellows, and oranges that the leaves turn. Our most favorite fall activity is a trip to the pumpkin patch. Don't you just love searching for the perfect pumpkin? I say that a pumpkin can't be too plump. If you have little ones a fun Halloween book is Spookley the Pumpkin by Joe Troiano.
Another favorite fall treat is double-dipped caramel apples from a local store called Del's. They are the most delicious thing EVER! I am actually going to try and make my own caramel apples this weekend. I know they won't be as good as Del's but I'm going to give it a try! I also like making pumpkin rolls. If you haven't ever had one of these treats, do yourself a favor and Google the recipe and make yourself one. So what is your favorite fall treat? Happy Fall Y'all!

I love fall, too! For me it's anything made with pumpkin, and the ability to wear sweats!

I was going to say cookies. It is so hot in the south that making cookies is way too much trouble until it get chilly. Now that I have read Tina's comment I have to add pumpkin pie.
