Goodbye October, Hello November!

With your trips to the cider mill and apple orchard,

Your warm days and cool nights,
hayrides and ghost stories.

This month I learned that Wyatt loves pumpkin spice anything. 
That I love pumpkin spice lattes - I just had my first one!

We had fun collecting things for Wyatt's fall nature discovery box.

I was reminded of the infinite creativity and talents of my husband. He made Wyatt's viking costume - not the hat - and turned a wagon into a viking ship...

And about how awesome my family is in general. I had a moment, standing and watching my husband, son, sister-in-law, and niece (er.. dragon) trick or treating. My brother and I hung back and just watched, and I thought of how many years I trick or treated with that kid, my brother, and how now, how lucky we are that we can take our kids out together. 

So hello November! I am looking forward to seeing what this month brings! 


  1. I love pumpkin spice lattes! Those are the best... although I didn't get as many this year. Boo. They hang around at some places for a while though... so I still have time. :) Nice pics- glad you guys had a great time. And the Viking costume- very cool. :)

  2. Yay! Another pumpkin lover. He is adorable. I love his sweet little face and those little fingers. I'm glad he had a terrific Halloween. What an awesome costume.

  3. October was a great month! Love the photos of your guys on Halloween. Pumpkin spice lattes are the best, but I haven't had one yet this season... that will change this week for sure!

  4. Great essay! I love the creativity that some parents put into their kids'(or their own) costumes. A Viking and his ship-- how special. Wyatt has such a handsome face, with long eyelashes too..he's no longer babyish looking; he's all boy now.

    We had so many pumpkin spice lattes this Fall that I am over them, and have moved on to hazelnut coffee with half & half--yum! Enjoy what's left of Autumn and have a good week.


I love hearing from people, don't be shy! I would love to hear what you think! I always reply back, although it takes me a bit longer these days due to the little guy.
