I am a stay at home mom who is trying to remain humored by the material my little girls provide me with on a daily basis.
What else? Let's see...I love sneaking quiet moments with my hubby, could go antique shopping every day, and enjoy gardening...even pulling the weeds!
I have recently been diagnosed with a couple of brain tumors-an acoustic neuroma and a meningioma. Thankfully both are benign, just large and not very fun to remove. I haven't blogged for a while, but am reviving it to post prayer requests and updates on my health in a manner that friends can access easily. Thanks for following along!
Ah...I just love October. The weather is perfect and there are sooo many fun fall activities going on.
You could find me at any one of the million pumpkin patches in the area, the Dallas Arboretum or of course the State Fair of Texas...any fine day of this month.
I just wished it lasted longer. Jerry has a training all day this Saturday...to me it is a crime! Being cooped up in a classroom? On a Saturday? In October? Pure craziness.
While I won't take on the State Fair of Texas without him, we have too many pumpkin patches to visit to wait for daddy! Jade didn't have preschool today, so we sent Lily on her way and headed with some friends to explore the "Great Pumpkin Festival" going on at the arboretum.
We visited the petting zoo, Posed for pictures at the pumpkin houses,
Stopped for some pumpkin stew, Got some other great shots,
and of course saw lots of pumpkins, other squash and gourds.
Can you pick out the Apple Gourds? How about the Peanut Pumpkins or Tiger Striped Pumpkins? Or my favorites, the Long Neck Swan Gourds? Sadly, I can identify all of them.
Just call me the pumpkin lady. I'll be here all month.
