WARNING:  very long post because this mama finally had time to sit down and blog!!  I understand if I lose you half way through this post.  Those of you who love long on!!

I'm not gonna lie...I have mourned the loss of summer for quite sometime now, but I am truly excited that Fall is here!  Love it.  I love pumpkins, cinnamon, my crock pot and any recipe that has pumpkin in it!  Oh yeah, and I think I'm ok with cooler temperatures long as it doesn't turn COLD on me! :)

We've been busy so far this Fall!  We made a trip up to The Broadmoor several weeks ago and had a blast.  The weather was not ideal for the golfers in our family, but this girl loved all the rain!!  Parker has been busy learning so much in pre-K, I love seeing him blossom.  Little Sis and I enjoy our mornings while P is in school...we workout, shop, get pedicures, run errands and just hang out.  It's sweet time together!
My mom has been here twice to stay with us over two weekends.   About a month and a half ago, I was home alone with the kids one night while James was away and a man tried to break into our house, at 10:00 at night and I saw him.  I had to dial 911, a friend with a gun and the man was caught in our front yard and arrested.  I haven't been the same since.  Needless to say...I refuse to stay by myself at night. to the rescue!!  :)  My prayer is that my fear subsides and I will one day be ok at night when I have to be alone.

In baby news...Sydney Kate turned 5 months since I last blogged.  This girl is such a happy baby!  She has learned to roll over one way, is starting the teething process and laughs and smiles all the time.  She is very laid back and is such an observer.  She watches every move Parker makes. We just love her to pieces!
OK  That is it for now!  I have just accepted the fact that in this season of my life, I am fine with blogging once a month.  It is all I can muster these days, I'm sorry for those who miss my more consistent posts...I'm pretty sure that might just be one of you. ;)  Anyway, these precious kids are this young just once and I don't want to miss a thing so therefore my blog suffers!

I hope everyone is having a great Fall!

Look at those rain clouds!  Loved it!
