Feeling Fall

Good glorious fall morning!!! My back windows are open and I can hear the rustle of leaves in the trees as the wind blows and the slight chill wafts into my house. I opted to forgo dance class this morning and slowly sip my coffee as I go through our pumpkin patch photos from yesterday. Each one bringing a smile to my face. Every year our family "patch" grows with one more little pumpkin and come next year there will be one more.

Grandma sure isn't complaining.

This guy was able to join us, such a treat on a weekday afternoon.

I love him so much, can hardly believe we will be celebrating ten years of marriage next month.

Of course, these three are proof that it has indeed been that long...

Following the patch, we all headed out to dinner, Papa met us there on his way home from work. Yet another thing that makes me feel all sentimental this time of year, family. We are so blessed all of our's live close (minus Uncle Garret). I love that my children know their aunts and uncles and cousins. That they can be bonded and know they are loved unconditionally.

There is rain in the forecast for today (insert happy dance icon). I'm making a big pot of vegetable soup and baking pumpkin bread. What about you?? Doing anything to feel fall??


  1. Cute, cute cute, cute... Did I tell you I think this is CUTE!?!?!?! The kids are all adorable, I love these photos! I'm especially big on the first one. Thank goodness I got my $3 pumpkin from the patch :) I think I found the cutest one. Second favorite/s the one of Jules and Emily. That is seriously precious. It warms my heart. Funniest moment - Sammy choosing her pumpkin. She was so proud! I just love all my sweet nieces and nephews and the fact that Luke has so many cousins! We are all so blessed. Love, love, love every pic and every moment from yesterday. xoxo

  2. Loved that pumpkin patch! It had some of the cutest pumpkins :) Fall is here..as I write this rain is falling and the air is cool. I even had to wear a jacket today while wearing a sweater..So blessed that all of my kids make a real effort to maintain relationships with each other. These little cousins love to see each other and it makes this grandma's heart full of joy! xxxooo grandma of 5 little pumpkins(+one still on the vine)
