I thought I should post about Fall before Winter hits! And we also have birthdays tomorrow (Thursday) and Friday. Gwen & Emily and so I will need to post all that.
Fall in Utah is amazing. I took some photos of the mountains near our house but they really didn't turn out. Unfortunately we've been busy most days with soccer and flag football. Soccer ended last Saturday until Spring. I am going to try and get a photo of the kids in their uniforms since this will probably be last time we have 6 soccer players. So I digress but we haven't made it up the canyon to enjoy the beautiful colors. One day the kids had off it had snowed so I was leery of going up there but neighbors said that it was just gorgeous! The kids have 2 days off this week for Fall Break so maybe we can fit it in between all the birthday festivities.
We have had parent teacher conferences over the past couple weeks and so far so good. Of course there is always room for improvement but it could be a lot worse.
It was a Hillbilly Chili cook off that was at the church and everyone was suppose to dress up. Our older boys did not dress up and Zane and I stayed home since he had a fever and I felt like I was fighting something as well. They had a lot of fun and I guess they took pictures there with props so I'll post those if I ever get a copy!
We've had fun getting our pumpkins last family night and we had caramel apples and decorated with our Halloween stuff the week before. I love the feel of fall, cool, crisp with amazing colors. It's truly a feast for the senses!
We continue to enjoy BYU football, Tim usually goes to his parents with the kids to watch the away games. I usually try to get stuff done while I listen on the radio.
We have enjoyed reading Halloween books and our favorite is Jerry Seinfeld's Halloween so if you don't have it, get it or borrow it...it is the best!
Have a great fall, y'all! (I know I am copying someone but I am not sure who!)
