I enjoy the relaxing and downtime....more than I can say.
Yesterday we had planned on going to a couple local Halloween/Fall events, but instead we all decided we'd rather be home and not run anywhere. George, Andrew, and I are very similar in this...we like our alone time too. Lily actually also likes doing her own thing sometimes too and others she likes to be playing with someone, reading with someone etc.
The ease of our family is something I don't take forgranted.
Today we're heading to the pumpkin farm to pick our pumpkins!! This is one of my favorite things we do each year. I LOVE it! I loved it when Andrew was little in Tennessee too. Great memories, great pictures.
Last year we took a 3 month old baby and this year a 15 month old. Time flies so quickly. I mean, look how teeny she was!
For the 1st time since we've been together as a family, we'll be going without Reagan though. We're all pretty disappointed by this because regardless of what the custodial schedule has been since 2007, we have always planned it to make sure she came with us. This year, however, we have her during the school week and no weekend time, so she misses out. :( She is really sad about it too. We are looking forward to carving the pumpkins with her later this week!
Then we're all looking forward to watching the Steelers Cardinals game. My two fav teams! Superbowl 43 was the greatest ever!
I also bought a pie pumpkin at the grocery store to make my own pumpkin puree, so I can bake more pumpkin rolls. I've perfected the recipe to the exact taste I was going for. My husband refers to them as "logs of sin". We have a busy week ahead and I need to get working on Andrew's Halloween costume too!
