Fall is such a beautiful time of the year. Leaves change and the cold breeze weather seems to calm the summer days away. I love fall mainly because of the layered fashion and those hot chocolate nights with my family and friends. Fall is full of awesome holidays as well.
My favorite holiday during this time is Thanksgiving. Not only do we get to share our special thoughts and thank you ‘s to each other, but we also get to share great food that we’ve cooked together. I love being in the kitchen at my mom’s house with music playing and memories flowing while we cook as one. We would all spend the night before thanksgiving at my mom’s house, where we wake up early to start coming as a family.
The funniest memory I have of Thanksgiving was when my mom left to visit her family while leaving her kids in charge of cooking thanksgiving dinner. My sisters and I worked like crazy to recreate what my mom makes every year. The table was laid with every kind of thanksgiving food you could think of. Right before we sat down to enjoy our hard work, my sister went into labor. Everyone was running around the house going crazy because my mom wasn’t there to tell us what we should do next. Everyone grabbed plates to go and we headed off to the hospital. That night around 11:00pm, my beautiful niece was born and we had one more thing to be thankful for. Oh and by the way, the food was amazing for our first try without the expert!
What’s your favorite fall holiday and what crazy story do you have to top mine?

My favorite holiday during the fall is Halloween! I get to dress up in crazy clothes and my wife doesn't get mad at me for embarrassing her. I really don't have a crazy story that's better than yours but I do agree that your niece was one more thing to be thankful for. Maybe this Halloween something crazy will happen and I'll have to come back and tell you guys about it!
