The Days of Fall

Just as Pumpkin Pie goes with a Thanksgiving feast, so does the days of fall go with falling leaves and unfortunately some work to pick up those fallen leaves. The greatest thing of all is when you can take those moments and make a little fun while the work is being done. Jeff was outside raking while the boys were playing some football and that is just a moment in this beautiful day!

Just remember there is always work to be done but it can always be mixed with fun. Every moment is another opportunity to make another memory. Of Course the days of Fall would not be complete without a Thanksgiving dinner with family and friends.

Here are the little bundles of Joy listening to the stories.

We have been so blessed this year and we are so very thankful for all that God has blessed us with and the friends and family that we are so thankful for. We pray that your days of fall were filled with friends and family as well and as we are almost at Christmas I am sure we will have more moments to share.
