Fall is FINALLY here!

I love fall, everything about fall. I love the smell of fall, the colors of fall, the beautiful multi colored leaves. I love bundling up in pjs and watching a good movie on TV and crawling into a cold bed and curling up until I warm up. I love burning candles and have the fragrance fill up the house. I love soups and stews and chili, and how they warm you up. I love the crisp smell in the air and the cool breezes. I love getting into the car and turning up the heat to get warm. I love long sleeves and sweat shirts and finally have a reason to wear them and not good looks like Im crazy. I really love the fact that now here in Vegas its not 110 degrees out.

I wish we lived somewhere that was really four seasons. We are trying to get stationed in either Illinois or Ohio (four seasons and snow at Christmas here we come). Hopefully it will happen sooner rather then later.

This month has been busy and hectic planning for the holidays and getting everything ready. I have been making Holiday crafts like crazy (mental note to myself, post some pictures) I have been having a blast. I discovered sanding and panting and building lately and the tips of my fingers on my right hand now have no distinguishable prints.... poor little fingers....... but the crafts were so much fun and so worth it. We also went to a pumpkin patch to get some pumpkins, Landon found one for himself and so we brought that home and Noah and I got a mommy pumpkin, they are both too little to carve so we are going to paint them tommorow and carve the bigger one. We also went to a Chili cook off at church and had a blast. Landon was running all over getting into everything but looking oh so cute while he did it. I am just so glad that the holidays are finally here, looking forward to many cherishable memories.

Me cooking Noahs favorite soup, Zuppa Toscana!!!! (so glad that its getting cold out and we can warm up our insides with some soup.)

Landon has a "house" in his room made out of a box and when he saw this box he thought he could get into it. He spent a good solid 5 minutes trying to get in there. He just did not understand that once in there it will not get bigger. He was not getting frustrated though, which was so sweet. By the time I realized what a goof I was for not taking a picture I ran to get the camera and when I got back he was done trying, I told him "oh man I wanted a picture of that." He repeated back to me "oh man!" and went to the box to try one more time and get me a photo op. Sweet kid!! His new thing is "oh no!" We went to the doctor the other day and she told him he had a rash and he looked at her and said "OH NO!"
Double binkie action!!!! I guess one just isnt enough!
Our pumpkin picking endeavor! :O)
All Landon wanted to do was sit on it!!! He sits on everything, the dog, blocks, shoes, the diaper bag, and thing he sees!

Good for you, getting stuff done and making memories!!! You will always remember your fingers when you set up your decorations every year. :) Landon is just too cute! I LOVE the double binkie thing, that is hilarious! Is it actually getting colder there? I always thought Fall was one of the nicest times in Vegas, PERFECT temp. Don't you think? Can't wait to hear about a possible move, another adventure, yay!!!
