Turn your clocks back an hour tonight before bed, for it's Daylight Savings Time once more! With less daylight and cooler nights, it's time for seasonal changes in the home.
~ Light scented candles in apple-cinnamon, candy cane, balsam & cedar, or pumpkin spice to bring a little warmth and coziness to your rooms.
~ Break out the puzzles, board games, and movies you haven't had a chance to see yet and have a family fun night once a week with hot cocoa, popcorn, or homemade cookies.
~ Bake regularly and let the kids help - homemade breads, cookies, cakes, and pies. Stock up on baking supplies when items are on sale!
~ Pick a book to read as a family before bedtime. Little House on the Prairie series is one of my favorites.
~ Make your favorite hearty meals, soups, stews and chili!
~ Change your cotton sheets to flannel ones and add a cozy blanket to the foot of each bed in case it is needed on those really cold nights.
~ Do arts and crafts when it's just too cold to go outdoors. We like to draw, make necklaces and bracelets with beads, cross-stitch, embroidery, paint-by-number kits, paint suncatchers and various other things.
Enjoy the beauty of the season!
