:: what?! it's OCTOBER?!? ::

*tap tap*...this thing on?

Um, hi.  I just realized it's October.

Here's the deal.  I think of things to blog about all day long and by the time the end of the day rolls around...poof.  It's gone.

Ryan's been sick for a couple of days, Liam got a nasty cold today and I sent Aidan to bed with a runny nose.  Sigh...

The days are getting shorter and due to new schedules, busier days and earlier mornings, bedtime has moved up to 7pm.  The darkening skies make it easier to convince them that yes, it's true...time for bed.  Best part of our day -- as much as we love our kids, we crave these late quiet hours...

We have plowed into these new schedules headfirst and the days are literally FLYING by.   As we look forward to more fall events - the pumpkin patch, Halloween, Thanksgiving, I'm going to try to be better about blogging.  I don't want to lose these memories!!  I do have a few photos to blog (Las Vegas!!), and a few videos as well.

I'm looking forward to getting the ball rolling again!

Highlights from today:  Candy corn, baking my very first loaf of bread (!!), and rocking my Liam in the rocker for a bit, singing and giggling (man, I love that boy!)

Here are a few photos from a "nature" walk we took a couple of weeks ago!
