With the last day of the month here, I realize that some things are coming to an end, and others are just beginning. And I'm not just talking about the seasons, but yes, I'm so happy they're changing too. No, I'm referring to the end of yet another volleyball season, my "big" girl is in fact growing up, and much to my dismay her little sister isn't too far behind. Here's some pictures I caught recently documenting the fact that life IS passing by, and a bit too quickly for my taste.
My baby with her "beers". I promise it sounds like that's what she's saying! LOL!
Taking care of her babies. (She can say that one correctly.)
One of my absolute all-time favorite shots of Josh, and of course Little Miss is making silly faces/gestures in the background. Isn't that the way it always goes???
The conversation went like this:
C:"Mama, we're washin' da dishes"
Me: "You go right ahead babycakes! Don't push your sister off the chair!"
(which has happened more than I'd like to admit.)
But October brings my favorites in life--mmmmm...fall football, the crispness in the air, visits to the pumpkin patch and Apple Festival in Elijah, Halloween, and the anticipation of the leaves changing color. (Here in the South, they usually don't actually hit their peak until the end of the month or 1st of Nov.) I've already purchased my first cans of pumpkin in anticipation for pumpkin spice muffins, pumpkin squares, and pumpkin pie. Followed closely behind will be the apple cider and roasted pumpkin seeds. I plan on cooking more with Caroline this year. Maybe we'll even make it down to Mom's so they can do Fall leaf sugar cookies together (one recipe I haven't mastered yet. But then I haven't master very many! LOL!) Yes, I'm excited FAll is around the corner, that the holidays aren't far off, and that this blasted summer humidity is finally creeping back toward the equator. I'm ready for Fall I just wish it didn't mean my kids were growing faster too. Oh well. Ya can't have both I guess!
1st "fall" picture--Caroline and her leaf!
Happy Fall y'all!
