Saturday is busy around here. Steve has a special event at work so he will be gone most of the day. And Madison will be preparing for the Homecoming Dance. Even though she no longer attends the high school, she is allowed to attend as a guest. And as luck would have it, a senior boy invited her to be his date. He is a nice young man and a good friend...insert emphasis on the word 'friend' here...and I am hoping they have a good time. I am enjoying the relationship break around here lately. ; )
They are planning on attending Mass at 5:00, so they will be here before that for pictures. We are planning attending the same Mass...but we will be sure to sit on the waaaay other side of the church. ;
Sunday we have a soccer game at 3:00. Before that I am planning a small brunch with some pumpkin French Toast. Yummmmm. After the game we are planning our annual trip to the pumpkin patch. Ahhhh...fall. : ) And that is what we are up to this beautiful autumn weekend. I hope yours is happy and cozy and yummy, whatever your plans may be. Thanks for stopping by, my friends!
One more vacation shot from my phone...Flynn praying the rosary for a good, safe trip.
I returned home to find my dear mother had taken very good care of my pretty mum.
I am loving autumn treats these days...
and being all ready for cozy autumn evenings inside...
and these beautiful handmade quilts I had made from a very talented woman on Etsy. Late last spring I sent her pieces of my very favorite clothes from each of my children. Well, minus Flynn because she is still wearing her's. And last week, these arrived. I couldn't be happier. Each outfit has such wonderful memories attached to it. That little white hat there? Madison wore that home from the hospital. : )
Here is Peyton's. I gave no instructions...but I am so happy she put the Cookie Monster front and center. Peyton wore that every single day for almost an entire winter!
And my Rhett's. I was so excited to buy little boy clothes! He wore that Old Navy Rugby all the time.
We returned home from the beach to find the leaves were just beginning to present their beautiful gift to us...
and every year I marvel at them as if it were the first time I have seen them.
This is the view from my porch...and now you know why I love fall so...
and this is a tree behind my neighbor's house. : )
Kirby alerted us to some friends in the yard this week.
They were probably looking for these...from the trees that line my driveway.
Back from vacation means back to school. And
all of my kids this one was ready to jump back in.
She is doing well. And she loves to call me "teacher." : )
She inherited my love of all things autumn. The first day of October meant bringing out the Halloween clothes...
and hair bows too.
She and I prepared a special snack to welcome October back...
and they were good. : )
And here is the link for the Etsy shop for the quilts...she is a joy to work with.
