13. Outfits to wear to the Fall Festivities; Claire is a princess (pincess) and Lily is a pumpkin (original I know; but it's SO cute!) Nothing scary or gruesome is allowed!

14. Shopping with Mommy at Bath & Body Works for good smelling stuff and Hobby Lobby for holiday decor!

15. Getting to shop for New Fall Wardrobe ! (one of the best thing about having little girls!)

16. Last but not least; the Fall Meeting we have at our church the second weekend of November every year and the Folk Festival at the lake that every one drives up to attend; the beautiful fall foliage (scenery), the yummiest food, the most beautiful crafts, and woodworking and metal working and CANDLES! And MUSIC! So, much fun!!!! Can you tell I get excited? Most of all, I LOVE to go and EAT! Does that surprise you? lol.

*Lots more that we will do, I am sure, but I have to stop now, I have a date with my husband! :o) Head over to Sarah's to read her plans for Fall! Thanks for hosting this Sarah!

Have a Blessed Weekend!
