Welcome, Fall!

Yes, I have finally decided to get back in the swing of things here in blog world. I finally recovered from my hideous GI "bug" that put me out of commission for a whole week. I returned to work this past Monday and am almost back to par and finally eating foods that are not only white in color!

I feel like the last two weeks I have been held captive by the four walls of my house or an operating room! Jim is working 24 hours in Birmingham today--at his second job on the LifeSaver helicopter--so today I have been a single mom. After spending so much time inside lately, we decided to do something different today. After a little bit of house cleaning and a trip to Target, we left the TV off and spent most of the day in the great outdoors!

The weather is just beautiful....the sun so bright, the air with a slight crisp to it and the wind blowing! The kids and I picked up the sticks in the yard, raked a few leaves and refilled the bird feeder. We then took a quick trip to Home Depot where Caleb and Madison each picked out a mum to go along with our pumpkins sitting on our front porch. Caleb picked orange/yellow and Madison, of course, picked purple. We also got a few pansies for our planter. Once we got things situated on the porch, we just spent some time riding bikes, talking and the kids played some new version of front yard golf--of which I am happy to report no windows were broken and no one was injured during play.

It was a good day for some much needed sunshine therapy and just for us to welcome the wonderful season of Fall!

I'm so glad that you're feeling better, and that fall is here as well :-) We've been taking Jackson outside a little each day to get some fresh air. Saw Fort this weekend. We need to find some time to get together. Let me know when is good for y'all.
