october rain, mushrooms and crafty fabric leaves

It's been very rainy here for the past few weeks which is a welcome relief from the Texas heat.  We are getting somewhat settled in to our new school routine and I have already baked two batches of Pumpkin Gingerbread!  I love the Fall.

I'm working on a fabric leaf garland right now made from fabric and felt scraps from another project and it's turning out pretty cute.  I'll share the patterns and tutorial with you when I'm finished.

Little O has been having so much fun playing in the rain.  I wrapped my camera in a zip-loc baggie, grabbed an umbrella and snapped these photos:

Because of all the rain we've been having some super size mushrooms grow in the front yard.  We had lots of fun measuring, snapping pics and imagining the little fairy people that might live in them. :)

Doesn't it look like a little house with a door??

How is your Fall going?  I'd love to hear about your Fall traditions!

Grace & Peace,
