Fall Fun

Hard to believe that Halloween is in just 2 days, signaling (at least in MN) the end of Fall and the dreaded start of Winter. Yikes!

I LOVE Fall. I often wish that it could be October all year 'round. So for this one month, I tried to throw out all plans of weekend chores and just focus on having a great time with the family. I think we succeeded. Multiple visits to the corn maze, apple orchard, raking and jumping in huge leaf piles, baking pumpkin and apple treats and just savoring every possible minute of this amazing season... it really doesn't get much better!
Here are some photos from this phenomenal Fall...

Thanks everyone, for sticking with me on this blogging thing... I'm already falling behind but am determined not to give up!!

Joey's New Trick

My little baby is officially a stair-climber!
He's been trying with little success for a while now, but as of last week he has mastered this new skill.
And nothing, I repeat nothing, distracts him from wanting to show off his new trick!

And so it begins....

I've broken down and been sucked into the world of blogging.
I've started more calendars, baby books, journals and scrapbooks than I can count... and haven't been able to keep up with any of them! This is my last ditch attempt at creating something for my boys that will be a record of their childhood. Cross your fingers and bear with me as I get this thing rolling.

Welcome to our life!
