Fall is here

Fall has arrived and is definitely one of my favorite times of the year.  We had a good week of about 80 degree temps recently and while I tried not to complain about it too much, the pregant part of me is welcoming 60 degree days (as long as the sun is still shining).  The hotter temps did allow for some nice outdoor fall activities however.

Look how amazing these colors are.  I wish I could say this was my backyard, but then I probably wouldn't be writing this post since I'd be outside enjoying a mug of hot cider surrounded by the beauty.

 We have broken out the spooky glow-in-the-dark skeleton pajamas to get ready for Halloween.  Boothe is dressing up as a baby chick and Magnolia is obsessed with Strawberry Shortcake.
 We've taken some walks around the neighborhood to see all the changing leaf colors and brought back home a collection to make into leaf art.  Seriously, give a kid a glue stick and 2 things to glue together and they are happy as clams.  I think their art turned out pretty good.
 Magnolia has been wanting to take lots of pictures lately.  This one of Boothe turned out pretty cute!
 The girls were having a ball playing ring around the rosie in the leaves.  Serious belly laughs.  Can you tell?

 And last night we made carmel apples.  It was getting close to their bedtime so we couldn't wait for the carmel and chocolate to cool and harden a bit before eating so we were left with a gooey yummy mess which was thoroughly enjoyed.  They were seriously so good.
