Happy Fall Y'all!

That's what they say around here, I guess. Love, love, love the fall season. Fall decorations, visiting the pumpkin patch, dressing up the kids, chilly air, fall leaves, apple cider, scented candles, pumpkin pie, all the festivities leading up to Thanksgiving and Christmas. . . I love it ALL!!! Here are a few shots of the recent activities around my house.
. . . and yes, of course, I made the Cinderella dress!

Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday to my dad! He is 48 today which seems so young to have two grown kids and almost 3 grand kids. Still we tease him for being old since we are the kids, and isn't that our job? I am sure that my three will do the same as I get older.

This weekend, I cut of the end of my finger and part of the finger nail. Ouch! Not to worry, though! Everyone will still get their orders on time!

I will leave you with a picture of my dad and sweet baby girl! This picture is about 3 years old.
My dad looks much the same, but my girl is much different of course. Sweet memories! :)
