Fall Fun

Summer is my favorite season, mainly because I have my summer off of teaching to spend with my family.  However, fall comes in at a VERY close second.  I just love this time of year - the changing of the leaves; the browns, yellows, oranges; the crisp air; heading out to a football game on a Friday night; hot chocolate; the smell of my Bath and Body Works Creamy Pumpkin candle burning; carving pumpkins; getting Payton all dressed up for Halloween; a yummy pot of chili simmering on the stove...  I could go on and on.

Here are a few pictures for some of our Fun Fall Festivities - enjoy!

One Lovely Blog Award

My friend Kaylan over at What More Can I Say gave me this blog award.  The rules say you are supposed to accept it and then give it to 15 of your fellow blogger friends.  Unfortunately, I don't think I have 15 fellow blogger friends, so I will just graciously accept the award.  Thanks, Kaylan!
