I am so ready for Fall!!

I know that it is Fall, but that doesn't mean anything in the South! We probably won't see Fall colors until November. We got up this morning and it was just a little cool in the house, oh it was so exciting! So to make it really feel like Fall we built a small fire and let it burn out quickly so that we could smell that smoky warm smell all day. Oh it's so heavenly! Fall is our most favorite season!

Can you believe these pictures of my babies? I posted these in November of 2007. Oh sweet Jesus, has it really been two years? Can we just slow things down a bit? Please?

It's funny, reading a post that old kinda gives me the feeling of hearing yourself talk on an answering machine. Do you ever get that feeling? I feel like I am so different now, but in ways still exactly the same. I feel so much older, not in a bad way, but just in the way that I know more about myself and my family. I'm not new at this anymore and it feels good to be out of that "war zone" that is the first few years of motherhood. I feel kinda like I have "payed my dues". LOL! Maybe that's why I have so much compassion for new mamas. HARDEST YEARS OF MY LIFE! I could sit up and worry ALL NIGHT LONG over a cough. LOL! Now if one of the kids cough they usually hear something like "Could you cover your mouth? and  stop coughing so loud you crazy kid!" LOL! Wasn't this post supposed to be about Fall......oh well...

Today we are going fabric shopping and I'm really looking forward to stocking up on some Fall colors. I've already made Maddie a Fall dress and it is so cute, but the pictures will have to wait until tomorrow.....Happy Fall! xoxo, Sam

We had a hint of Fall here today too. I am in heaven. All my windows are open and I love that crisp feel in the air. I spent the better part of the morning pulling out our fall quilts and adding more Fall colors around the house. I have cinnamon spice candles burning and bread in the oven about to come out....no big surprise, this is another way we are just a like. This is my favorite season too!

Yep, Fall here too. Cold, leaves turning and falling. We even needed a little heat the other night, in the 40s.
How was the show???
Also, tell about your fabric shopping. What did you get?
And, I think I told you about making my dd a winter coat. It's done and on my blog. I'd love to know what you think.
Enjoy your shopping day.
