Fall Happenings...

I love Fall, but dread Winter. Fall is so beautiful. The colors, the smells, the temperature. We have been enjoying Fall as much as we can, between sickness going through our house. Not that it is good to be sick, but maybe it coming through now, will promise a healthy Winter. One can hope...right? Seems like we have done quite a bit lately.In mid October we went to the Pumpkin Festival in Keene, NH. We had the perfect weather for it. last year it rained and we ended up leaving early. This year we were not impressed. There were a ton of pumpkins, but not nearly as many as in past years. Bryant zoomed in on this Transformer one. Very cool:

Here is a distant view of the wall of pumpkins. This is always a vision:

The weekend before Halloween, I had an oppotunity to head down to Martinsville, Virginia to see a Nascar race. I was not feeling my best, but I was not going to pass on an opportunity to see my boys live and in person one last time this season. Oh, how I love me some Tony & Jr...

Here is the view from our seats. It was perfect:

One of my favorite things about Fall is the simple beauty of nature. I park by this tree everyday at work. It is so beautiful it almost takes my breath away:

On Halloween this year, we just spent the evening with family. Bryant did not want to go trick or treating. His explanation was simply that he could get candy at the store anytime. yes indeed-y that is true. So we headed to Grammy & Grampy's house to help hand out candy. First we made a pitstop at Brookdale Farm in Hollis, NH. They have so many beautiful things to see. First Bryant had his picture taken with the big scarecrow. He was not as big a production as in years past, but still fun:

Here are some pics from inside. Pretty (& scary) decorations :

and a few more:

and of course Bryant had to have a spin on the tractor:

Though he did not want to dress up, he had fun with his air guitar and grammy's witch hat. Rock on dude!!

One last thing that I wanted to share was, I received some very happy mail today:

I ordered this beautiful necklace from Janna Wilson's new Whimsy Shoppe:

Lots of beatiful handmade goodies there. You can check it out for yourself here.

I admit I have not done any scrapping lately. I know. Me! Right? I need to get back on the wagon. I have many more Fall pics, along with the ones above, to scrap. Plus, I am getting together the items that I want to use for my December Daily. Can you believe that it is almost that time again? I am really happy that I did it last year. You can check it out here.

Have a great rest of your weekend! Send me some Mojo. I need it!

Go Pats!!!

I love all the photos! I'm so sad the color is gone. It seems like fall was here and gone before I had time to fully enjoy it.

That necklace is gorgeous!
