Hello, It's Been a While!

I took a break from blogging for a while because my time was so limited and this was not a priority. I was having too much fun this summer with my kids, then Kindergarten started and school for summer and life was still busy. I just wanted to pop in and say, Happy Fall! I never thought I'd be excited about Fall because I love warm weather so much, but I was ready for things to slow down (or so I thought they would). I've been more excited about Halloween each year with kids and this year is no different. Our house has been decorated for over a month and we have been enjoying the fall festivities: hay rides, pumpkin farms, crafts, pumpkin muffins, etc. Yesterday I kept Ellie home from school so she could join Summer and I apple picking. Yes, we could go on the weekend, but it would be much more crowded and much more stressful and we wouldn't be able to enjoy it as much as we did yesterday. The orchard was almost all ours and it was a beautiful fall day. The three of us had a lot of fun together and making memories is what is most important!

Summer said her favorite thing was "picking red apples and taking pictures." She loves using my phone to take pictures. I asked her to take one of me on the ladder picking apples and what I got was a shot of my legs and butt. :) 
Ellie loved going on the ladder to reach the highest apples. She would toss the apples to me and I would give to Summer to put in the bag. It worked out well and we got a lot of good apples! And, what I loved the most was spending time with my girls and laughing and being silly with them. 

The girls dresses are Matilda Jane from their newest collection. Every season I have new favorites and these are two of them!
