I love the cooling temperatures, and opening my windows at night. I love watching the geese fly south. I love the corn stalks on porches and the carved pumpkins and front steps.
PUMPKINS-- I love pumpkins. I love their color and I love their flavor. I love pumpkin pie, cookies, bread, pancakes, and muffins. I love pumpkin rolls and cranberry pound cake. I love fresh apples off of the trees and all the yummy apple desserts.
I love knowing that Thanksgiving is right around the corner- a wonderful reminder to be thankful for all our many blessings and for reflecting a little on what Heavenly Father has given us.
I even love watching the first snow fall, it makes me think of reading a book by the fire (while drinking hot cocoa of course).
Fun, fun and more fun. Brett, Zae and I went to the activity days mother-daughter activity in full costume. In case you can't tell, I am the pumpkin in the middle. We had a lot of fun picking from a menu of brain chunks, bat croppings, goblin slime, roundworms, tapeworms, vampire blood, ogre mucus, eye balls , live maggots, and toe scabs. Yum, yum, yummy!

All of my wonderful friends told me they were taking me to a movie for a "night out" and surprised me with a baby shower. I want you all to know that I held my composure during the shower, but had my own little tear fest as I got home and sat around all the blessings that were so generously given to me. Thank you!! It is overwhelming to be surronded by such wonderful, selfless friends.
"We cannot tell the precise moment when friendship is formed. As in filling a vessel drop by drop. There is at last a drop wich makes it run over: so in a series of kindnesses there is at last one which makes the heart run over." ..... James Bosswell
