Fall for a Day

We had the brief feeling of Fall this last weekend so Peter, Scout and I took advantage of every minute.  Evenings in the park with friends and the night of caramel apples just topped off the Fall weekend.  All three of these little girlies where so cute and fun all evening (Lola and Recker too, not pictured).  They had so much fun eating caramel apples and candy.  The weather put everyone in a great mood and got me that much more excited about checking activities off of my Fall TO DO list.  Next, visit a pumpkin patch.

Pie-licious Holidays

I love getting in the mood for the holidays.  Decorating, crafts, long outdoor outings and baking being my favorite parts of the season.  So when I woke up this morning with pie on the brain I had to bake.  Unfortunately, I have never made a decent pie crust.  In holidays past it always ends up too thick or too dry, I was determined to make a good pie crust from scratch.  Although my pie is not the most fall flavor, peach, I was still very pleased and in a wonderful holiday spirit when it turned out so beautiful.  I hope it tastes as good as it looks.  Now this November come Thanksgiving I won't have to settle for the store bought crust.  I have two months to figure out how to make the edges pretty.

Getting out of town is a must when the weather is still in the 100's and October is approaching, so we headed up north to Rose Creek.  It quickly got me in the mood for the holiday season with the cold weather, loads of delicious food and all my family being around.  Vacations are extra relaxing when you have lots of kiddos around who are willing and able to take care of your kiddo. Scout had a blast with all her cousins and I didn't have to lift a finger.
Now I am officially ready to start the holiday season, bring on Halloween.
