It's FRIDAY! Here's some more fotos...


It has been the best first-week-of-FALL ever.  Ever. 
We had some rain.  We had some sun.  We had some MUCH cooler temps! 
Love it.

And, I know there are plenty of people that don't "get into" Halloween.  I have 
no problem with that, but I really love Halloween.  My parents loved Halloween...
my mom sewed us costumes and my dad decorated the exterior of our home 
like crazy.  (In his 70's, my dad still decorates BIG time!) It was so much fun. 
And, I was just recently evaluating a lot of things in my life (b/c of a book) and 
realized that it probably had a lot to do with living in the south where summer 
is always so hot.  (I know this year it was a hot summer for everyone.)  It just 
felt so good when we could get out and enjoy the air...late October!

With that said, we've had some Halloween/Fall decorations up for a week or 
two.  I thought I would share some of our scarier ones.  Don't laugh...








LOVE this capture of Luke.  His dark eyes with his blond hair are a fave,
but add in a silly grin...and he has me hooked!








Several months ago I was coloring with Luke, when I happened upon a very
pretty crayon.  It was "Robin's Egg Blue" and I told Neil that I wanted a piece of
furniture that color in our new house.  I didn't even realize that Luke was paying
any attention, and we went on coloring.  Since then, if ever we get out the
crayons, Luke comes running with "my" Robin's Egg Blue crayon, saying
"Mama color!  Mama color!"  It's really sweet.

I love robin's egg blue, too! I almost had that shade as our wedding color, but I couldn't find the exact shade in the cloths for the bridesmaid's dresses, so I gave that up and went for something else instead.

Precious picture of Luke, and I LOVE the crayon story, and picture! :)

I am getting more and more into halloween. I realize how fun it is.

And, I want to know the name of the book you are talking about that has made you look at things differently....I'm needing something "new" in my life.

I LOVE fall too, and Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday. I feel like Halloween, like so many things in life, is what you make it. If you make it all about fun, there's nothing wrong with that! Last year I bumped into my pastor and his kids trick-or-treating! =)
This year the kids are with their dad for Halloween and I am so bummed. I'm such a kid! Next year we're planning a HUGE Halloween party.
