Fall is my favorite... and Winter, but we'll save that for another day.

I love fall for lots of different reasons, the colors, the clothes,the parties, the pumpkins and the apple desserts. We had a really good shephards pie last night and to top it off we had sauted apples with a brown sugar glaze served a la mode toped with whiped cream. Not at all healthy but oh so good!

I also love Fall because of all of the fun things that happen, My moms bithday seems to kick things off every year in the middle of October. Here Shenda and Rainn are dancing on my lawn at my moms birthday party. Yes it really is that much fun!

My mother, and some of her nine children and most of her 16 grandchildren celebrated her 48th bithday. . . for the sixth time.

( I lost track of how many time she turned 47).

Little Jonny was very helpful when it came time to blow out the candles.

I worked on Olivia's Halloween costume this week. I bought it in late September and it was just a tish snug and when we went to try it on her two weeks later... dang thing busted at the seams!
So I got the best fabric I could find to add three inches to the body and ended up doing a verry shotty repair job. Good thing for me you can't tell just how bad from this picture.
So I made a few fabulous silk ribbon flowers and placed them over my horrible sewing job.
I think it turned out super cute and am just a little pleased with my self.
I love the head band.

We went to Ben and Erins new place for family home evening this past monday. She made a super delicious brocoli and cheese soup served in sourdough bread bowls and then we painted pumpkins that Shane grew in our garden. We figured carving was a bad idea for two year olds.

Olivia and Ryan kept saying "Oh so bewtifullllll!"
They had a lot of fun. However I'm not sure how Olivia didn't end up with paint on her face too.

I can't wait for the weekend! Church party and trunk or treat on friday. Ryan, Jenn and Baden Armstrongs Annual Halloween Dinner Party and trick or treating on saturday!
Like I said. . . Fall is my favorite!
