Fall Traditions

After a pretty trying week at school, Zane had a great day on Friday so as a reward I planned some great fall activities for him.
We started out by roasting pumpkin seeds.  Since we weren't planning on carving our pumpkins I bought a package of pumpkin seeds from the store to roast and picked up some old bay to give some seasoning without any added heat (Z is very sensitive to spice).

We had a great time learning about these traditions;)   And it's not everyday you get to roast pumpkin seeds and sip hot apple cider with Spiderman!  LOL
We just layed the seeds out flat on the baking pan and sprinkled with olive oil and seasoning (or you could just use salt) and toasted in the toaster oven till golden.    They were yummy!

While we were working on our pumpkin seeds we were sippin' on hot apple cider that we picked up from the store as well.  It was great timing because we got a sudden cold snap this weekend!

Then we moved on to pumpkin painting...
Z painted both sides of his, a vampire on one side and a spider on the other.

I painted a spider web on Liam's pumpkin....A design I saw on Pintrest and was excited to get to work on!
Love our fall projects and looking forward to more!
