Fall Bucket List for Kids

It's fall and that means sweater weather, rainy days, hot cocoa and of course, trick or treating! The boys and I have compiled a list of all of our favorite fall must do's, and here it is, just for you:

Take the kids Halloween decoration shopping

There is nothing like feeling included and proud that they were trusted and had a helping hand in picking out the home's decorations.
