Bloggy catch up...

I cannot express my gratefulness that it is now November! For one, I DETEST the holiday of October-- we are one of the non celebraters....not. at. all.

I feel grieved most of the month to be honest... just a heaviness in my spirit. it is in every shop, comerical, show, radio station.... it is everywhere devouring the wonderfulness that is fall. the leaves turning, the hot weather fluttering away, the jeans being dusted off, the flip flops being stowed away (okay that is pushing it).... but really I just wish it didn't devour the whole month! I with it was all cutesy costumes and without gore... and I wouldn't mind as much...

Being at the parents house they had bought candy to give out but after gore doorbell number two they shut off the light and we ate the candy our self! :0) Yeah.

SO anyway---- on to our NOVEMBER... whoo hoo! I have yet to snag me some pumpkin patch pics.. might just not do it this year! The kids DO. NOT. COOPERATE. very well and I end up not happy so much.

I might not be much of a celebrater ( I think I might be making up some words and verb usage this post) of October but November and December are my MONTHS! Bring it all on! The smell of cinnamon pine cones, wreaths, glitter, bells ringing, music, wrapping paper, hot chocolate, turkey and dressing....yes. I. say. YES.

I also am a fan of daylight savings time being OVER.  I mean I love long summer days but I am also over it by now... when it is 7:00 o'clock and I am gearing up to get the kids settled down with baths and on the way towards bed I like it to be DARK OUTSIDE!  Plus when I cozy next to hubs with a movie or show I like it to be DARK OUTSIDE....  so it is always a bonus for me when we hafta change our clocks!

I got my FIRST Gingerbread Latte of the S.E.A.S.O.N last night!  Oh. YES. I. Did.  So very exciting!  I will tell you they have gone up in price and I will not be getting many of them over the next few months unless I am gifted those purty little gift cards BUT still tonight's splurge was nice because I just had my oldest girlie girl in the van with me and we had a STARBUCK date after church!

Okay last catch up and there are PICTURES....the grandparents took the kids to the carnival-- one of our favorite season past times!  YOU know fall is in the air when you hear the Carnie yellin down on Spencer!

BTW... the best catch up of all is the ALL three of my children got baptized last Sunday and pictures are coming SOON!  :0)

Very exciting about your kids' baptisms!

I'm with you about October. I always get so excited when the calendar changes to November. And my fave drink at Starbucks in the fall is their Pumpkin Latte. Yum!

I hope you have a great November!

I'm not a big fan of Halloween either but this year the littles got to dress up and my friends took them to a trunk or treat at a local church. Much better than door to door :)

I didn't think about that perk to Daylight Savings more complaining about the light outside at bedtime!

Oh and YAY on the kids getting baptized!!
