On our list of autumnal activities:

|A bit of handmade love for Miss C's 7th birthday x|
Wow!! They had never seen anything like it. I remember how much I enjoyed this event as a child so it was just wonderful to take my own.

This is so much better in the UK because it's dark. It's a simple as that really:
dark = spooky + candles + sparklers + lighted pumpkins
Plus the enjoyment of a wonderful party organised by some local home ed families and now friends for a spectacularly spooky evening!

The girls had never been to one before.
They had never seen fireworks before.
Some people last year were gobsmacked that children aged 7 and 9 had been so deprived! But again these things only really work if it's dark. Oh and then there were the toffee apples ..... can't really say that they only work in the dark but the girls had never one of these either (maybe they are deprived!).

And of course you can not forget the glorious autumn colours that England does sooo well or the humble conker (of which we had 100s) x
