It's Fall Y'all!

Like a lot of you, Fall is my favorite time of the year.  Although it is still very warm here, there is a subtle difference in the air.  The light has changed.  The sunrise is beautiful every morning.  The kids are in a nice, solid routine at school and the holidays are coming! :)
We made our yearly pumpkin patch run with my Mom yesterday.  I had to drag Logan along.  Apparently when you are 10 the pumpkin patch is for babies?  Oh well.  He ended up taking a lot of the photos. :)
 Cuties :)

I happen to love the gnarled, ugly pumpkins.  It reminds me that God loves us all, warts and all.  There is a purpose for every living thing!
 My oldest and youngest.  How did they get so big?
Ava searched high and low for the perfect pumpkin.  She wanted a perfectly round one with no bruises or spots and a straight stem.  I think she inspected  every single pumpkin!
Logan tried to get a group shop.  Nearly impossible! :)
I hope you are enjoying fall wherever you are.  We don't have the pleasure of seeing the leaves change in Florida, but there is surely beauty to be found!

The pumpkin patch is so much fun. My 13 yo son does not enjoy it as much anymore. I think it's great and my 17 yo daughter loves it. Maybe it's a boy thing.

I loved the gnarled pumpkins. The uglier they are the cuter I think they are.
