My most favorite season

Fall. I LOVE FALL!!!! It has been my most favorite season for as long as I can remember. The weather is cooling down (good news for those of us who don't like skimpy clothing) and the leaves are changing beautiful colors and school is starting (I can't wait to go school shopping with Ellie in a few years!). One of the best things about fall is that it is an anticipatory season- there is so much to look forward to! Halloween! Thanksgiving! Christmas! There's decorating to be done and presents to be purchased and wrapped. And the food is DELISH. Simply the best food is saved for fall. So Ellie and I celebrated my most favorite time of year today by going to an apple orchard. It was sooooo fun! We got to pick apples, take a ride in a wagon pulled by a tractor, pick pumpkins, eat cider and doughnuts- what more could you ask for? Unfortunately dad had to go to work today, but we had a fun girls day with some of our friends from church. Here are some picture treats for you (can you believe how beautiful my little girl is?!?) I only wish I could also send you all one of the amazing cider doughnuts we sampled while there (I may or may not have bought a dozen to bring home...)


  1. How fun was that day?! I'm so with you--fall is the best and has the BEST food :)

  2. That looks SO fun! Fall is DEFINITELY my favorite season as well. I was trying to explain to Morgan my excitement for all the cooking and baking and crafting...but he didn't quite understand. I think he's just excited for the football. ;) Ellie is so sweet! I can't wait for her to have another sister. :) Miss you!

  3. Aww fall.... good times! And you even have an apple orchard close! So fun! I'm jealous - trees, grass *sigh* And I love Ellie's little hair cut! What a cutie patootie!
