Finally Fall...

Now that the weather has changed from 103 degrees to a pleasant, crisp 65 degrees, we are anxious to move into our autumn mode. Like most people I know, the feeling of fall brings on the urge to snuggle, bake, eat delicious soups and enjoy time together doing more indoor things. Well, we love all of the above, but still like to play outside as much as possible! This tasty bowl of chicken soup is one of my new favorites and was the perfect meal to come in to after our new favorite fall event. Thanks to the recommendation of our friend Ali, we put a few drops of soap on the freshly-rained-on -trampoline for some slip-slidin' fun!

Of coarse, after playing in the cold, then eating hot soup, you gotta wash it down with these scrumptious pumpkin spice, chocolate chip cookies and a tall glass of milk!

Oh, how I love the smell of rain and the feel of lounging in my comfy clothes, sipping hot chocolate. The kids get excited for the cooler weather and of coarse, Halloween, just around the corner! So many wonderful things to look forward to this time of year. Ahhh, it's finally fall!

I love fall, too! I had a bad case of the cozies all last week. Too bad we are right back to sunshiny skies and 90 degree weather.
