A Beautiful Fall Day

Today is the most beautiful day in the history of the world.  At least, that's what my dad would say.  If it isn't THE most beautiful, I bet it's in the top 17 or so.  The weather is perfect and the scenery lovely.   I just ate a big, crisp apple, and I think I will start singing, "It's Autumn Time."  The kids and I went to enjoy autumn.  Of course, we took along the camera.

Lili loves horses, and this one proved quite friendly.

When we got home, Omar was asleep, but we took a picture of the others in front of the lovely fall tree picture Marcos made at preschool.  We just harvested these big beautiful pumpkins from our garden.  That's a lie.  We didn't even have a garden this year.  Every year we can either have a garden or a baby, and this was a baby year.  The years we do have gardens, we have never been able to produce pumpkins--especially like these.  The pumpkins were a good price at the grocery store, so I got one for each child to decorate and another to make dinner-in-a-pumpkin (our traditional Halloween feast which nobody likes but me--no matter, I will continue to make it every year!  Traditions die hard for an Olivia.).

And here is a final picture.  Omar is loving is cereal, and since he's only been eating it for a week, everyone is still excited about helping to feed him:
Happy Fall!

Wow! I've really missed a lot on your blog - like the last 3 posts! I'm relieved to be in-the-know now. I loved all of the pictures. The one of Marcos feeding Omar is absolutely priceless. Your dream was a little scary. Ammon's eye incident would have scared me too! Yikes. Loved the pictures of Starr Valley too.
