A Touch of Fall..........

My precious little neighbor, Sawyer! 
I made him a Halloween Shirt and he came over
to show me how he loved it!

I made a couple little Halloween shirts for 
Grace and nieces once removed?  
Not sure
 what our connection would be called :) 

 Our Fall and Halloween decor!

The kids came out for bar-b-q last Sunday!
This weather is habit forming!

on the top of the Hilton!
Fabulous day all of the way around!
Congrats Chris!

Fall yard is a beautiful thing!

I always get sad when the days get shorter 
and the nights get cooler............
it means that winter is around the corner! 
The joy of flowers 
and summer plantings make my day

Our fountain 
makes the most beautiful music.....
We have it going 
from morning to night :)

and the Zinnias................OMG the Zinnias!
I don't think I will ever be
 without Zinnias again!
Where have I been?

The deer managed to eat most of my Clematis
but this lone late bloomer opened yesterday :^)

Our outdoor room where I spend a lot of my time :)

We were just about ready to get rid of this concrete fountain bowl.
It broke some years ago and I usually put a fern there!
It broke in a way that couldn't be fixed.
This year.....Rog drilled holes in the bottom of it...
and needless to say, that was a chore!
The holes made it possible to plant in it....thus the mums! 

I will be looking at these pics as the winter winds blow...
but for now, I get to enjoy the real thing!

Pumpkin Farm and Balloon Glow!

Special times with loved ones!
We started out at the Brookdale Farms in Eureka.....BUT...
finding they were going to charge us more than 50.00 for us to get in...
we jumped in our cars and headed for Rombaughs in Chesterfield Valley!
Free to get in.....and no extra charges to take part in a fun day!
We ate and PAPA bought the girls some really BIG PUMPKINS!
Margo loves pumpkins so she was in heaven.
Milly has fun no matter where she it was a grand and glorious day!
The only thing missing was Chris and Jeff and their families :(

Sweet family filled with love!

Funny the little it takes to make us happy!
Someone that loves us and someone to love!
That's about it!

Sister Love!

The Post Dispatch featured our boys 
on the front page yesterday.
During the annual Great Balloon Race....
the boys got some camera time:)

Not to mention Chris in the background!
