Fall is FUN!

I love fall. It's one of my favorite seasons. With Christmas being my favorite time of year. I love the colors the change in season brings. The apples, pumpkins, hayrides, etc. We went apple and pumpkin picking this weekend. My family has been doing this for years (since my sister and I were young). We go to the same place - Oriole Springs - every year. I so look forward to the first weekend of October for this reason. We pick pumpkins (and if we are not there when the place opens - we have to listen to my father tell us all the good pumpkins will be gone); we pick apples, we stop at the Smoke House and get fresh ham, bacon, string cheese and carmels (my fave)! This year since we had Nicholas with us we stopped at the petting zoo. He had a blast. He was running through the apples trees holding an apple above his head yelling "bawl bawl (ball)." It was a lot of fun and a great fall day. Not to cool, lots of sun, no rain!

Here are a couple of pictures.

It was a long weekend. I didn't scrap any layouts but I did use the WIP Project kit to do a Halloween Banner. I will try to take pictures of it later. I also bought some jars at Target, an easel at Dollar Tree and some bins at the Dollar Tree, to try to get my stash organized. I have a huge jar that holds all my flowers now. It is so pretty! It makes me happy.

Hopefully I will get in some scrapping time this week. Maybe tonight. DH will be watching Game 4 of the White Sox v. Tampa Bay series. GO SOX!

I hope everyone can get out and enjoy the great fall weather. Happy Fall!
