Anyhoo, the Calander doesn't lie... It's Fall Y'all! Get ready for decorations, baking your brains out and managing crazy kids jacked up on sugar.

To kick off the crazy, I thought I'd share 15 fun family crafts to do this weekend. (Read: This is cheap easy decorating that keeps the kids happy. (Not listed below, but recommended: Wine, Cheese, five-star chili.)
