So, what does fall mean at YOUR house?

Going to Blue Hills Apple Orchard and making pie. Watching Penn State football. The Keene Pumpkin festival: memory of first falling in love with each other.

Fall may be my family's favorite season. It includes our anniversary and our daughter's birthday. Halloween is a hugh favorite (we are going to be Ariel) and our annual trek to Weaver's Farm for their Fall Festival is always a ball (October 24th this year). Thanksgiving, family visits and getting ready for Christmas are also top on the list. And let's not forget baseball playoffs (Go Phillies) and Chargers Football. Have a great Fall everyone.

Those are such great thoughts about fall. Post the Ariel photos please! Chris- send me some of that pie. You reminded me that my mom and I and the boys make applesauce every fall. Ahhhh.
J-Happy Anniversary! So funny how you both put sports in there. Football (via band) is becoming a part of my life, as well. You know Howie, my dad, and Lisa's hubby, Tom are HUGE PSU fans, too. Thanks for posting- it's a dirty job....

I've always thought of fall as the time when the year starts over. Who wants a new year in January when it's cold and blah. I have vivid memories of walking onto campus from the Bietsch House, crunchy leaf smell crisp on the wind.

Hey Lisa. I was thinking the same thing just today. For the first ten or fifteen years out of school (crap we're old) the smell of Fall always made me think of Ship and being back at school. Being up in the mountains at the Wall or outside at a Phi Sig party. Or maybe a night of "killer charades" or "one red hen" at Georgia's house. It is amazing how vivid a picture I have in mind of how her living room was set up and the night Scott was trying to help me figure out the "I'm going on a picnic and taking..." game. Well let me stop before I am up all night.

Fall for us is about lots of hiking in the woods, pumpkin carving, decorating, making Vera's costume (Hippie-Vampire this year), usually a big Halloween party, but this year we've decided to take a year off. With Stuart's big 50th celebration (i'm still younger!), the new puppy (cute, sweet Kiko), and the overseas trip earlier in the year, we just needed a break from planning. So this year we'll do a Haunted Pittsburgh tour or a Haunted Cemetery tour to celebrate.

Fall is when I miss living in the northeast the most. Oklahoma just doesn't have as much of the beautiful fall folliage that I remember from Pennsylvania.
