Fall is here...

Even though I didn't feel good the other day (just a cold, no more nausea, whoohoo!), I couldn't resist hauling out the autumn decorations. Thankfully Mom downsized her collection so that we girls could have some things. I loved pulling it out this year. Now that the walls are painted and furniture is finally set in place, playing around with all the knick-knacks (Shane is anti-knickknack by the way) was way more fun. The kiddos put their pumpkin Jack out on the front porch, THANKS MIMI!, and I got out my carrot cake yankee candle. It smells like fall and it is so fun to pull it out from the cabinet again. It makes me want to make Leslie's carrot cake recipe, which is seriously the best. I didn't like carrot cake before that cake. YUM! Is it from Southern Living Les? I have yet to take pictures of any of this, but hopefully this coke I am drinking will give me a little more energy. I slept Reece's ENTIRE nap yesterday, that's three hours for those of you that don't know! I didn't get anything accomplished. But Mom always said rest is the best medicine. She also always took us shopping when we stayed home sick from school. I think she should come down here right now and take me to TJ MAXX! ha ha ha!

Can't wait to see pictures! I'll live vicariously through you (it's one of the only ways I'll be able to see fall colors this year!). ;)

Hilarious!!! I remember the "rest is best" especially if you need a day off to shop! I miss those days. I think I caught the worst cold in years because I've not been resting. I did try the shopping thing though and found a cute shirt at Target! I want the carrot cake recipe when you get it!

We did have fun on your "sick days"! I was always so glad you kids did well in school and I was able to have fun days with you. Also, who really cares if you have perfect attendance? Is there anyone right now who keeps track? I sure don't think so!
