sweet November.

It’s so hard to believe a new year is upon us. This one has literally flew by.  Mornings are now spent trying to savor those last few minutes under warm blankets just begging to be snuggled a bit longer than usual.

These are the days i hit the snooze button a zillion times before I realize I’ve slept in a little too long and have to take Brandon to school instead. Not that I mind taking him to school at all, in fact I absolutely love it, I just don’t like to have to scrap frost off the windshield first. I remember loving winter when I was much younger. The cold didn’t bother me one bit. I loved the snow. Making snow men, snow angels, ice skating, skiing, sledding,  it was great.

Now….

Well, Let’s just say I would prefer to be woken up in the spring haha!

 Kidding aside, I do enjoy spending time outside playing with the kids. Olive obsesses over the fallen apples, per usual and Brandon and I enjoy kicking a ball around while she chases it back and fourth.

The fall leaves are very crunchy from the frost they have endured and oh so fun to run through.

Isn’t this pixie hat the cutest? Olive’s Auntie Diane made a few of these from a vintage pattern she had and we just love them so much!!

Right now we have a few mild days in between the cold ones, a tease of sorts. So we soak it up and enjoy those days because we know as each day passes we are that much closer to winter and all it brings.

We have had a few flurries here and there but it wont be long before the real stuff arrives. Brandon is already talking about his Birthday, which is quickly approaching and making a Christmas list for Santa.

Speaking of Santa, we will be visiting him shortly for pictures.

But for now, we will enjoy apples, crispy crunch leaves beneath our soles, hat’s and mittens, hot chocolate, extra snuggles,  warm cider and anything else that makes the fall months much more bearable.

Like kids in cute hats!

    1. Rachel you really know how to make me cry. Thank you so much for the sweet email. I miss you terribly. I’m teaching Olive to say “cute” and “grampa” right now. We work on it every day. Olive likes to throw food so reading about Daniel and Brianna really made me laugh. You should start a blog here so i can follow you!! Hint hint!! It’s easy. 😀

    1. Thank you Melissa!! Olive has been sleeping with her Junie doll and she will holler “doll” if it’s not in her crib at bedtime! hehe! I bet Lucy would LOVE to play in the leaves! Olive loves looking at all of the different colors but she is particularly fond of apples at the moment and it’s hard to get her to come back inside when she’s out there. 😀
