Welcome Fall :)

Reagan helped me set up a little snack for us to enjoy after school yesterday, because...yay Fall! :)

We will celebrate you, because we love you. You are our best friend. 

We made pumpkin cookies and orange punch. It was a nice little surprise for the girls when they got home yesterday. You know, as their mother, I feel it my duty to instill a special fondness for this time of year. ;)

We even made some special orange ice cubes using a jello mold. (I think the cubes came out better than our jello did last year, haha.) This drink was just orange juice and ginger ale. Sort of a virgin mimosa. It was yummy! Next time I would add just a bit of red food coloring to the ice molds to make them stand out more. You can see a pumpkin popping out there. :)

The girls were definitely surprised. We had a really nice afternoon!

And our little red head says hello. She wishes she could eat pumpkin cookies, too. Next year, Charlotte Rose. :)

Good times!

We went inside after this so that I could show them a nifty gadget we picked up for this fall. It's just an apple peeler/corer but these children were AMAZED. We've been eating a lot of apples, haha.

Everyone had to take a turn of course.

Apples coming out of our ears! Gracie loves that this type of peeler makes "slinky apples." :) I like that apple crisps and pies will be a breeze from now on. Why didn't I get one of these things sooner? 

We hope that you all had a great day yesterday! Sending you our love and warm autumn wishes!

Awwww, little Charlotte Rose is starting to change in looks! She's so beautiful! Of course :)

And I don't know if I've asked this before...but would you be willing to adopt me and Kinley? You make the best memories!
