We have reached my very *favorite* time of year!! I can’t even tell you how much I love autumn.
I love having all our house windows open and letting the cool breeze sweep through. I love seeing the changing colors of the leaves. I love seeing the combines in the fields and watching corn husks scoot across country roads in the wind. I love the delicious apples. I love the smells. I love….well……everything.
Last week we went to the pumpkin patch (well, really, it is a little farm south of Mitchell – we go there every year) to load up on pumpkins, gourds, and anything else that looked cool for fall decor. We aren’t really into decorating for Halloween - just fall and Thanksgiving - so, we didn’t need to be concerned with what kind of pumpkin would be best for carving. This is a good thing, because the kids were SO excited that they just picked up whatever pumpkins and gourds they could carry and loaded up our wagon. They also each picked out one big pumpkin that Randall or I had to carry.
Happy Fall, Everyone!
