We LOVE Autumn!

We have been trying to fill our autumn with super fun things this year.  It's our favorite time of year, if you hadn't guessed.

We made a trip to a glass pumpkin patch. Don't worry Pumpkin was securely strapped into her stroller so she had no chance at "picking" these gorgeous handmade pumpkins.

We're back in the groove of going to the Farmer's Market and enjoying the sweet potatoes and other yummy goodies. We also "ran" into one of Daddy's favorite people and had to get our picture taken with him.

We got to hit up a Fall Family Party for the Mom's group at our church. The home it was held at was in a gorgeous location in the hills with trees galore. Such fun! I am so thankful for this sweet group of mom friends. They have become a treasured gift from God!

We've made a few crafts too even with our busy Kindergarten schedule. Peanut made a jack-o-lantern candle holder via Pinterest. (I LOVE Pinterest!)

And the baking...oh yes, there has been fall baking! Apple pies, chocolate chip pumpkin muffins, pumpkin cinnamon rolls, and the like.

I hate to say it but Autumn is winding down and I don't like that. I always feel like it just needs to last longer. The leaves are falling, the air is much chillier, and you can feel the next season approaching the door to make it's way in. For now we will continue with our love for autumn and squeeze as much out of her as we still can.
