Beautiful Fall Colors

We have a big maple tree just outside our window that turns a beautiful gold in the falls and when the sun hits it just right, it's magnificent.

Early Fall

The last few weeks have found us settling in to an early fall routine. We are excited for the arrival of fall, but dreading the misery of the months to follow. Justyn keeps reminding us it'll be easier this year with all the wood to burn. The girls are busy as always, playing games, singing songs, "helping" mommy. Door County welcomed us last weekend for our final camping outing for the year. The weather was nice and we had a chance to do 40lbs of apple picking. Where apples abound, baking is to be found. Gracyn is especially interested in the kitchen. She is very clever with her snitching ways... Alicyn enjoyed some golfing with Papa Daniel and Grandma Karen. They even let her do a little driving, so she was very excited. We celebrated Justyn's birthday by making a nice dinner and cream puffs. Alicyn was concerned when we didn't light a candle and sing, so we did that the next night. She is enjoying school and has made a few new friends. She is very quiet in class, but is quite chatty when we make it to the car with all of the afternoon happenings. Of course that includes what she had for snack and the who chose chocolate milk report. :) Enjoy a few new pics.
