Falling in LOVE with Fall

Fall is by far my most favorite time of the year!  I 'fall' in love with it every time all over again every year it rolls around.  I guess partly due to the weather change, leaves are turning colors, and the holidays are approaching fast.  What a wonderful time of year.  Not only is the season changing, but so are our lives.  There are some big changes in store for the Andersons'.  As of the first of the year, maybe even as early as December I'll officially be a "SAHM" (Stay At Home Mom).  I'm really looking forward to the adventures that are in store for us as a family.  (That however is another BLOG in itself.) 

Just this past weekend we visited Tate Farms and chose some pumpkins for the family, two small ones for the boys to paint and decorate how they wish, and two large ones to carve.  They had such a wonderful time.  We also made some "Spooktacular Houses" for the boys to put in their rooms.  They wanted to decorate their rooms for Halloween. 

Here are some pics of the boys and Blake making their houses, and the finished product.

According to Wyatt, this project had to be done first thing Saturday morning when the boys woke up.  They still had their PJ's on and their hair still looking like a rats nest.

Next, project number two....getting some of the decorations out of the attic.  The boys helped Blake get them out and place them in the perfect place.

In the attic (and yes for the mothers out there, this DID make me nervous, walking into the garage seeing them up there in the attic with Blake.)

The boys and "Cliff".  I don't know how Cliff got his name, but that's what we call him now.  He's been called Cliff for at least 6 years.
(I think Cliff has the best smile out of the three in picture, don't you?  He's just happy to be out of the attic I think.)

"Pat" the bat.

Let me give you a "hand". 

Next up some good old pumpkin painting.

I haven't posted a pic of sweet Griff in a long time, but here he is.  He's hanging out around the breakfast table while the boys were painting their pumpkins.  On September 20th of this year he turned 13 years old.  His age is catching up with him.  Sleeping a lot more, and harder to get up when he been snoozing on the floor.  We are going to enjoy him while we still have him.  He's so patient with the boys and always has been since he was younger.


Here are some photos from Tate Farms, our pumpkin picking adventure.

I'm looking forward to more adventures, I can't hardly wait.
