Catchin Up

It's been a few weeks since I last posted. My computer has been suffering from the swine flu! Haha! I'm a PC what can I say. I really want a Mac! Now to play catch up.

October has flown by so fast. Two weeks ago Abigail and I went and visited my family in Graceville. She loves her Nana and Papa as well as her Uncle Justin, Aunt Hannah, and cousin Marlee. We had the best time. Nana and Papa took her to Aplin Farms outside of Dothan. She got to see all the farm animals, go through a corn maze, and pick out a pumpkin for her Papa to carve. Of course this gave me ample opportunities for photo ops, so I'll post a few of my favorite ones.
I can't believe that she is going to be two in less than a month. I am having fun planning her party and deciding on her presents but it's bittersweet. She's not a baby anymore. I have this little habit of holding her like a baby and saying "you're mama's little baby, right?" and she giggles then says "right" immediately followed by protests of being held that way! I love the way she comes up to me after she's been playing for a while and says "hey mama, what you doing?" And finally she loves to snuggle. That's my favorite part.
We are having a Family Fest instead of a Fall Festival at our church. It's the first Wednesday night in November. Part of the fun is a chili cook-off. Ryan and I have both entered and there has been a lot of smack talk. I think the chili that I make for our little family is great but I really need to practice a bit so that I can make it better. I'm pretty competitive so I really, really, really want to beat Ryan! Love you honey! :)

I hope everyone is having a great fall!

The Weather Outside

The weather outside is...PERFECT! I must say that I am a summer girl at heart. I LOVE the beach, summer clothes, flip-flops, backyard barbeque's, etc. But my second favorite season is fall. The nostalgia that fall brings is wonderful. I love the cool crisp air, caramel macchiatos and pumpkin spice latte's from Starbucks, scarves, and the knowledge that the holiday's are right around the corner. This time of year brings out my inner child. I get giddy with excitement.

Living in the south means we don't get to experience the changing of the leaves but I love the change of color in other aspects of life that signify fall is here. I love going into the stores and seeing the browns, oranges, greens, plums, and so forth. It will probably be a while before we have constant cooler temperatures but my heart is warmed by this sneak peek into fall.

We have taken advantage of the cooler weather and hit the park a couple of times this week. Abigail still doesn't like the swings. But she loves to slide! On Wednesday Ryan was able to go with us. We took our lunch and spent some time playing with Abigail and then had a picnic. We had a great family day!

What is your favorite thing about fall? Leave me a comment and let me know. Have a great fall y'all! :)
