Hi everyone! It is November 2nd, and that means we have only a few short weeks until Thanksgiving! It is the time to celebrate fall, guys. So for this post, I am going to give you 10 ways to celebrate November.
1. Make pumpkin cookies!
What says fall more than baking with pumpkin? I have five cans of pumpkin in my pantry and have been trying to decide what to make with it… maybe pumpkin cookies are the right decision!
2. Make an apple pie!
Pie has never been my favorite food, but I make an exception for apple pie. Especially when it has such a beautiful crust! Also… pies are really fun to bake.
3. Make mini apple pies!
Or, if you don’t want the trouble of baking a full-sized pie, you could also try making some mini apple pies. They are almost too cute to eat!
4. Take photos or make drawings of the fall leaves!
The leaves are so beautiful, but they’re falling fast. Whether you prefer to take a picture with a camera or sketch it for yourself, don’t let this beautiful season slip away without capturing some of the beauty while its still here!
5. Start a new tradition!
I don’t know about you, but most of my family’s traditions center around Thanksgiving and Christmas (which is coming sooner than you realize!). So, now that its officially November, its time to revisit some of our old traditions… and maybe even start a new one! Isn’t it funny how a lot of traditions start on accident? So be on the lookout for new traditions that you can make a regular part of your celebrations.
6. Visit the pumpkin patch!
It’s always fun to visit the pumpkin patch, whether you’re actually picking out a pumpkin or not. (For the past several years my family has gone to pumpkin patch just for fun, and then stopped at the grocery store on our way home to pick up our pumpkins.) But between hay rides, corn mazes, and overpriced kettle corn, what can say fall better than a visit to the pumpkin patch?
7. Remember to be thankful!
November is the month where everyone reminds you to be thankful… and it is truly an important reminder! In 1 Thessalonians 5:18, it says, “Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” So, remember to give thanks!
