I am so forgetful...

We went trick or treating, and I didn't take any pictures because I forgot my camera.
No spooky Halloween pictures for this post! But here's some pictures of our Autumn decorations.

Pomegranates, yummy! :]

Autumn Decorations

Last year we started this tradition (is it a tradition if you started it last year?) of making construction-paper leaves and writing on them what we are thankful for. When we got out the seasonal decorations, there were our leaves. It was really cool to see what we had written.

We always hold the Thanksgiving meal at our house, and this year I think I will give a go at making an apple pie from scratch instead of buying one from Marie Calendar's. Do you have any experience baking pies? (I might have to make this little whim into a challenge with my aunt. She's been doing a lot of baking, but I don't think she's baked a pie...)

My uncle got a Wii Fit! Awesome. I have a Wii, but not a Wii Fit. It's really cool! When you step on it, it'll say in this high voice, "Measuring... Measuring... Measuring... All done!" It's a good workout. My favorite "game" is the Basic Step Aerobics exercise. It's like a step class, but funner :]

As always, Kathleen from Grosgrain is having another fantastic giveaway. *sigh* her giveaway makes mine look lame. ;] Just look at her latest, the Tree Frog Costume.

Okay! For this post's question, I decided to make it not related to any kind of craft. (That I know of!)
Update: Brook got it right!
What is the blue item in the photo below?

Hmm... What is it?

Okay, I have added some handmade paper to the giveaway prize! So far, you will get 4 items if you win: a crocheted pumpkin, Betty Boop sandals, a crocheted flower, and handmade paper.

Speaking of giveaway, you can learn more about it here.
