Preparations and stuff

As Autumn is just around the corner, and we will be starting school in a week, I have been engulfed in thoughts and planning and ideas. I know no one cares and you all just want to see cute pictures of the kids, so I promise, my next post will have lots of cute pictures. Maybe we will go to the river today and take some or something. For now though, if you continue reading, all you have are my ramblings about my thoughts, planning and ideas.

Autumn crafts and food

Some crafts I want to make are acorn wreaths, corn husk dolls, bird feeders and Christmas cards. The kids are most excited about the acorn wreaths, because Layla just loves acorns. I am also looking forward to all my delicious fall foods... my special chili sounds so nice to eat on a chilly fall day. (hehe) Also, pumpkin cake, pumpkin cookies and everyone's favorite, my pumpkin bread. (Although, I think my recipe is in storage. Oh no. Leanne, if you still have my recipe, will you e-mail it to me? We will all be sad without pumpkin bread!) I am getting so excited for the cooler weather, the smells of baking, snuggling under blankets. Leaves actually fall off trees here, unlike back home, so we are ready for that too! Can't you imagine it all? It will be lovely!

Hmmm... I wonder if Poo Queen left that anonymous post above???

BTW... I can't even look at an acorn or an acorn hat without thinking of Layla and Jo hunting for them on your mom's yard!!! Gosh they were so unbelievably cute! I am so gonna miss them taking them to the Do-It-Center this Xmas season. Watching them in the snow was so cute... especially the first year we went! Of course, you guys now have the real deal to look forward to... hope you post lots of pics. I love you! xoxoxox
