I pulled out one of my autumn mugs, and am convinced my morning coffee tastes even better.
Cool air means a sweater for my tiny Mocha...
And baby dolls with sniffles who need snuggled up. : )
We continued our apple painting tradition during our week of apple fun.
A new month meant our schoolroom transformed from Back to School apples and pencils to October pumpkins and ghosts.
October is my favorite in the schoolroom too. : )
And this is one of my very favorite autumn books.
If you aren't familiar with this story of life and purpose and death and seasons told from the perspective of a leaf on a tree, you may want to check it out.
We took advantage of the beautiful weather and had lunch and "recess" at the park one day this week.
It was so fun to see all the kids enjoy themselves.
As did the biggest kid of all!
Rhett snapped this picture of his 48 year old mother swinging at the park.
I was not going to post it here, for obvious reasons, but I reconsidered.
Because. Real life.
Random picture of these two best friends.
Our days were not the only things to share their October beauty.
Flynn called me to see the sky looking like "Heaven on Earth!"
My firstborn was so happy to find and enjoy her first Pumpkin Spice of the season all the way over in Denmark. : )
Back at home, my second born Peyton began her Halloween baking with this awesome dark chocolate spider web cake. Complete with a cute little chocolate spider on top.
Me. Just sayin'.
Have a wonderful October weekend, my friends.
Our weekend includes a Jeep ride to enjoy the beautiful leaves, the wedding of a sweet young lady, and a Sunday at home with football and food.
Whatever your plans are, I hope you enjoy them with your people.
Thank you for visiting!
