FALL...it's the most wonderful time of the year!


I know that song is a Christmas song, but, I truly believe that FALL is the most wonderful time of the year. The weather is cool and crisp (or should be), the leaves are turning colors, I can wear shirts with sleeves and not die of heat stroke, football is on, and of course....HALLOWEEN, I could go on and on.

Last week was pretty breezy and chilly in the morning, it warms up as the day goes on but fall is definitely here, hopefully to stay. I set up all my fall decorations the last weekend of September, we have a canister of pumpkin spice coffee, my Sundays are reserved for weekly grocery trip, prepping our crock pot dinner and football.

The Race for the Cure is always the first Saturday in October; it officially kicks off the fall season. This year I raised $1025.00, yeah! Sawyer and I walked with some people from my work, I was not able to meet up with my normal group (LKN ZTA) but we still had a great time, this event is special to my heart, it reminds how precious life is, and how many people are affected by breast cancer.

On the 6th we had people over to watch the Panthers game, some of our friend’s brought their kids and it was really fun seeing them play with all of Sawyer’s stuff (they were 5, 4, 3 and 2). They also brought us a lot of loot for S, he will be clothed at this point up to 2T! Thank goodness for good friends and hand me downs.
Sawyer went to the doctor on Monday the 7th for his 6 month checkup, he is weighing in at 16 pounds and 12 ounces and 26.50’’, and it’s amazing how much he has grown. He received 4 immunizations and part 1 of 2 for the flu shot, he cried for only 2 minutes and then was fine. He has two bottom teeth that are poking through and we will start fruits, veggies and water next week. I think we have finally turned a corner in his sleeping, he is down between 630-7 and I wake him around 630-645 most morning to get up and head to school. Last week he slept through the night more nights than not, and if he is not, its up once for a bottle between 1-4, not to bad!

We have different activites/event planned every weekend from now until Thankgiving and I am so excited to see friends and catch up....I just love FALL!
