Fall is here....

I am trying to embrace fall this year, instead of dread the cold weather and the loss of summer. Here are some things that we have been up to lately:
To kick off October Doug and I decided to carve pumpkins.

If you can guess what Doug's pumpkin is, there is a prize for you (Davey and Shane are excluded because they know). By the time I was done cleaning out my pumpkin I had no desire to carve it. So I decided to take the easy way out and try poking holes all over it. I think it will look good in the dark all lit up.


Now our crazy cat is not so lonely on the porch...This wonderful and odd cat was placed on our porch by Ali and Vance as a joke. Doug and I just can't find it in us to get rid of it.



Sarah is home! She is finally back from her mission to Oregon and I am so pleased to have her back in Provo. It is great to see her, talk to her, and have a friend to play with!


My sister Lana gave us a 5 gallon bucket full of peaches and this is the result. It was my first time trying to can anything alone..and it worked out great. Doug and I tried them and they are delicious.


I am pretty sure that I have a wonderful and helpful husband. He was more than willing to help me can peaches and it went twice as fast.

I like the pumpkin with the holes in it. I think it will look very nice all lit up. Don't forget to come over and get those candles.
