Weekend of 10.12.12

8:11 AM

By this past Saturday morning we were finally bug and humidity free! We woke up to cold floors which demanded we don woolly socks immediately and hide out under the covers until the heat warmed up the house. For the rest of the day I proceeded to make all my autumnal dreams come true - we pulled out the flannel, made pumpkin pancakes and apple pumpkin bread (I'm a firm believer that there is NO such thing as "too much pumpkin"), went on a walk to take in the leaves and lunched on butternut squash soup. It really was the perfect day. I tell you this next to Christmas (it's totally a tie that no one could break) is my favorite time of the year. For some reason sweaters, ruddy cheeks, snow and crisp breezes are when I'm in my element. I suppose it's quite exciting that our baby will be born into this most wonderful time of the year. Though I must admit I am praying to everything holy that baby comes no later that his/her due date as I know how much people hate when their birthday is too close to Christmas. After all it's such a monster of a holiday (in the best way possible of course). Here's to hoping!

  1. Love the fall photos - to me this is the MOST wonderful time of the year!

    My little (step) boy was born 2 days after Christmas. He's almost 4 - not yet old enough to be bothered by it - but I always wondered how annoying it must be to have a birthday right on or around such a major holiday. I'm sure your little one will always feel special no matter what! :)

  2. I dont blame you for hoping for a fall birth, such a gorgeous season!

  3. So gorgeous! This makes me miss fall even more!! You guys moved to an amazing place. Hopefully we can visit in the near future!:)

  4. Sounds like we have some similar thoughts about what the perfect day entails.. I love this time of year so much but it always feels so fleeting. I wish fall got the same billing as winter...which sometimes feels endless up here! But let's not talk about that.. Let's talk about crunchy leaves and orange things in the kitchen. :)

  5. My due date was moved from January 1st to December 26th...rrrrrrr!! Oh, well...I couldn't think of a better Christmas present. My firstborn's bday is 12/4...I wait til after his bday to officially decorate for Christmas.

  6. Hi Mama Bear, thanks for following my little blog. You guys look super cute - all the best for your exciting future. xx
