Fall update

I love Fall. I love the crisp cool mornings where I have to wear a jacket to go feed the animals. I love the shortening days where we play inside in the evenings instead of out. I'm a fan of this season. We have fun activities lined up for this Fall. Next weekend is our annual city festival, something I've been doing ever since I was a little girl. I'm excited to show Greta this year...I think she'll enjoy the parade. After that is Halloween. Wesley is already talking about getting candy and dressing up. He said he wants to be Thomas the Train yet again this year. Makes buying a costume easy, we already have it! His preschool class is taking a trip to the pumpkin patch next week which I think he'll thoroughly enjoy. Then in November we are all driving down to New Mexico for Thanksgiving. I'm really looking forward to the trip, even the drive doesn't faze me this year (that might be due to the fact we are getting a new used car but it's not a done deal quite yet...I'm not going to be a mini van mom anymore...:). It will be great to see everyone since we missed last year due to Greta being a newborn. I'm excited about the next few months!

Not much happening around here. This might explain the lack of blogging. You could say I've been in a blogging "funk". Our washing machine started acting up a couple of weeks ago. The spin cycle didn't work leaving me with soaking wet clothes piled up in the washer. I was forced to squeeze out each garment over a bucket before transferring them to the dryer. Sean did some research online and found this problem was unique to the Maytag Neptune and happened quite often. He took it apart and, sure enough, the circuit board was fried. A new circuit board was $250 but he ran across a man online in Washington that would fix the fried part on the circuit board for $50 and ship it back. You gotta love the internet! So I won't be without a washer too much longer. I had no idea how much laundry I did in a week until that thing broke. It's amazing.

I hope everyone is out enjoying this wonderful cool weather!

Of course I can't forget Emery's Birthday! I will make him an awesome cake and spend more time on it that poor Greta's cake. Can't wait!
