Happy Fall?

Happy first day of Fall! Yep, in case you didn't know we are now officially in the autumn season. The weather didn't feel all that different around here today, but it definitely started cooling down a few weeks ago. Like my friend and Sis in Law Liz, I am sooooo not ready for cold and another 8 month winter. Last year the winter started early, ended late and was horrible! I am praying that we get plenty of moisture but that the freezing temperatures keep themselves to a few months. I can't believe it's already almost here! I'm already starting to stress about Christmas, we're going to be going to California over Thanksgiving so we're trying to save for that and of course if you read what I wrote a couple of posts ago you read that huge list of all the things I'm trying to do. And that wasn't including Christmas projects, craft projects, projects around the house and in the yard, etc. etc. I am determined this year that I am going to enjoy it. I am going to enjoy this time of my life, my sweet kids, the wonderful holidays and hopefully not let it bother me that my house is not the fairest in the land. So get out those sweaters, hot cocoa and rakes.....Fall is here!

Another bit of news. I had to get a new camera because our old one got dropped (and not by one of the kids or me ;) so DE let me get a new camera. Not that we could afford it but I told him I couldn't live without it. And besides, I use it so much for preschool it's a business expense. Anyway, here are a few pictures I took with my new Samsung s760. It seems to work great so far.

Iz and O in their preschool jail. ;)

This is as still as DE could get O to snap a picture. Every other one I took has his little hand in front of his face trying to take the camera from me. Daddy just snapped it at just the right moment.

See what I mean? His hand really isn't that big.

My sweet little Iz. He's quite the flirt.

I know, he's a doll, but you can't have him.
(At least not at this moment while he's sleeping peacefully ;)


  1. Your kids are so stinkin cute! That is cute the preschool jail!

  2. Sharla I love the pictures!! The one of Isaac smiling just breaks my little heart. I love Owen's cute personality you are never sure what he is thinking. And the one of Ethan and Andrew makes me sad that they are growing up so quickly. I love you guys! Grandma M
