Fall Bucket List Update and a Winter Bucket List

I thought I would give you all an update on our Fall Bucket List and share our Winter Bucket List today. I really thought we would have more items checked off our list, but life got in the way (big time) and we didn't do as much as I would have liked. Oh well, there is always next year. So how did we do?

10 out of 14. So we basically added three more items since I gave you our last update. We were supposed to have family photos on Sunday, but it didn't work out. We changed it to this Sunday and if that doesn't work out, then I don't think we will have a new family photo this year.

TRICK OR TREATING

On Halloween, we took the girls Trick or Treating and had a blast. We were out for over three hours and the girls loved every second of it...including eating candy along the way.

CARVE PUMPKINS

The week of Halloween, we finally carved our pumpkins. We didn't buy any stencils this year and just free handed it. I mainly just wanted to have the girls included and spending time cutting out something hard wouldn't have been as fun for the girls. So we cut off the tops, they helped scoop all the pumpkin guts out and then Rory and I did some simple carvings. The girls helped bring the pumpkins outside and we lit candles in them pretty much the rest of the week. Next year, we will let the girls carve their own pumpkins (with our help).

WATCH HOCUS POCUS

I don't know why it took us so long to watch Hocus Pocus this year, but I finally did the week of Halloween. We had mainly been watching the Nightmare Before Christmas which the girls can't get enough of. They are still asking to watch it. Luckily, it transitions to a Christmas movie pretty easily. I wanted to introduce Hocus Pocus to the girls, but when I saw the rating for it, I thought I might want to wait another year or so. So I watched it instead. I love the movie and couldn't help but watch it.

So I would say we were pretty successful on our Fall Bucket Lists. Now onto our Winter Bucket List.

On another note, we have our monthly Girl Chat link up tomorrow. Don't forget to link up.

  3. You did get a lot crossed off your fall list though, Andrea! Fall is a busy time as is so you should feel good about it.

    I hope it works out for your family photos this Sunday!! I am excited about the outfit you chose for yourself. You will look gorgeous.

    Your winter list looks great! Thanks for reminding me about the Elf on the Shelf. I almost forget that thing yearly now, ha!

  8. Y'all did really well! And your winter bucket list looks like even more fun!! I wish we could put "have a snow ball fight" on our list, but we rarely get snow so I'd be setting myself up for failure with that one. Haha.

  10. I did not watch Hocus Pocus this year and could kick myself! I love that movie! They look so cute in their costumes! I would usually say we could not do many winter things on your list down here, but with this early cold weather, we may just get a snowball fight in!

  12. I think you did a really good job on your Fall Bucket List. I got to watch Nightmare Before Christmas in theaters this year and it was a lot of fun - and it definitely transitions to a Christmas movie. Good luck with all of your Winter items! I made my Fall bucket list extend to the beginning of Winter - December 21- so I'll have to see what else to put on my Winter list after that!
