Fall Fun!

I love fall...it is my favorite season for so many reasons. This fall began with an exciting new addition to our friends, the Blankenships, family. They welcomed a new baby boy, Barrett, into the world on Oct. 1st. Barrett was 3 weeks early and was completely healthy and beautiful. We have seen him a couple times already and can't wait to watch him grow up. He is adorable. We were able to take him his first pumpkin today...we'll go ahead and say he liked it but really he could care less. His mom, however, was very excited to have Barrett's first pumpkin. Sadly, no pictures yet. Hopefully soon!

On Oct. 2nd we went to the Dave Matthews Band concert with Alec's sister and her husband. We thought it was great although I was very curious as to who was smoking the pot near us.

Oct. 3rd our friend, Sarah, from high school got married. She looked beautiful. It was nice to see some old friends. Again, no pictures.

Alec was in Dallas all last week for work so I went to stay with my parents. I love staying with them. They take such good care of me, do my laundry, cook me meals, make my lunch, take care of my dogs, etc. It makes Alec being gone a little bit easier.

Today we ripped out all of our summer flowers and planted fall flowers. It was sad to see my beautiful flowers go but I love the mums, pansies, and cabbage that I planted today. I will post pictures soon.

Then we went to the pumpkin patch and ate at Rons's...nothing like a great bowl of chili on a crisp fall day!

Looking for the perfect pumpkin
I love all the colors!



I love the lighting in this picture!



Alec kept trying to pet the goats...they wanted nothing to do with him

I love love love when people update their blogs. Some days I check at least five times a day to see if anyone has...So you can guess my excitement when I saw that you had posted!! I love all your pumpkin pictures. I don't think there are any places like that around here. You guys look great and so happy that fall is here. I do like season changes, but summer is my favorite. It is a little hard for me to let it go. I am settling into fall, though :) I have put out my fall decorations, made some pumpkin desserts, and decorated my classroom. Hopefully, I will see you some time in the next ten years!! Our track record isn't very good right now.
