Ditto, ditto, ditto on every thing you love about fall. It is in full swing over here. No pumpkins or fall decor yet but the killer summer heat has finally eased up and we are loving the cooler morning and evenings. Fall is "family time" for me. I think it is going to be harder this year than last as I already miss everyone so much. AND Robert is going to be gone A LOT until December. But really what can be done. We will blog away and make the best of it I suppose.

Ooooh, I love it all. I do like doing the costumes for the kids though. It's fun when they are all tricked out and made up!

Must be a grand with the pumpkin...so cute! I hadn't thought about pumpkin bread in a long time. Probably shouldn't be thinking about it now either!
