Welcome Autumn

It is as if they know - those trees.  A couple of weeks ago there was just one lonely red leaf.  It only hung around for a few hours.  Maybe the tree as a whole was just not ready yet, so it sent the lone red leaf packing.  This morning, a whole patch of red is breaking out.

It's my most favorite time of year.  I love the vibrant colors that paint the town in September and October.  The cider mills are open, the apple trees are full, pumpkin patches are filled with bright orange pumpkins, and jeans and jackets come out of hiding.  It's a big celebration of all living things before the deadness of winter...but we won't think of that yet, right?
Emily and Paige doing their morning thing.  Emily is really into coloring and drawing right now.  Her desk/table is always a mess of little pieces of paper, markers, crayons, glue sticks, etc...Sounds like we may just have another scrapbooker in our midst.  

Paige is trapped upstairs right now - she went upstairs and shut the gate.  Unfortunately, she is on the wrong side, and is not very happy about it.  I better go get her, right?

And Happy Birthday Mom!

Emily's outfit - PJ's from Carters. They are a little small on her, but she wasn't quite willing to give them up yet!
