Oh Fall...How I Love You

This morning I walked to church and snapped some pictures of the beautiful scenery on the way. I'm not going to share the pictures yet, though, because I'm going to use some of them for the scavenger hunt! (I'm still participating although I'm not competing!) The sun has been shining most of the day (for the first time in what feels like FOREVER!) It's just been so beautiful!

JC got our family pictures done this weekend, and I love them because of the scenery! I have to share a couple because I think he did a beautiful job!

Look at all those beautiful leaves! The reason I could never move away from here :-)Love the sky in this one
The three children in the middle, plus me and the other Luke on the ends (our b-i-l :-))
And my favorite one! Because I'm the tallest in this picture. Never mind that I'm sitting on a branch that's as high as Luke's shoulder!
I'm trying to really soak up this last month or so of fall before the Christmas season begins. It seems like the beautiful leaves fall way to quickly from the trees! I'm hoping to spend the next couple of weekends Enjoying the beauty, making lots of soup, wearing all of my fall clothes, watching scary movie marathons, and having a pumpkin-carving date night with Luke! Then it will be time for November. November will bring with it my 25th birthday, Youth Explosion, The New Moon Premiere, parent-teacher conferences, and Thanksgiving! There is just way too much to look forward to (although I'm NOT looking forward to pt conferences!) :-) Even though I've been sick for half of it, I really think that this fall has been one of the best ones ever!! I'm loving every second :-) And I hope you are too! I really feel like the beauty of fall is just as close to the beauty of heaven that we will get here on earth!


  1. Wow, you still have all kinds of pretty leaves there! The leaf season was very short this year where I live - it's kind of depressing to have all the leaves gone. *sigh*

  2. Beautiful family pictures by the way! I love them.

  3. I just love your family photos! I can totally see the prints of them in your homes!

  4. those pictures are gorgeous! I am jealous of all your pretty colors :-) We don't have any around here :-(
    I left you something on my blog :-)

  5. What fun pictures! Hope you are enjoying the Fall! I know I am!! :-)


Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment! I read and appreciate each and every one. Blessings to you!
