Thank You List Saturday #8

I'm so thankful that fall is just around the corner.


Yes, I know that the calendar says that fall is officially here, but we're on a bit of a time delay in the sunshine state.

Fall and spring are my favorite seasons.  I love Christmas, but winter seems a little useless without snow.  

Fall means I can cook stew and chili - the only recipes I get excited about making.  It also means I can start dressing the kids in their cozy clothes, making my already huggable kids extra snuggly.  I love the smells of fall: fireplaces, pies and applesauce in the crockpot.  Fall = Thanksgiving and Thanksgiving = stuffing and green bean casserole... yes, there' s a food trend here.  I'm not ashamed.  

Above all, Fall is the kickoff of the holiday season so I get to look forward to two months of lights, decorations, family, and of course pie.

I had a bit of a false start this week because the weather guys were forecasting a cold front for this weekend.  Now it's a "cool front".

I don't care.  I'm busting out the candy corn.

Hi, I want to thank you for such a sweet comment on the That Family Tree Society post today! I am a little embarrassed that I didn't follow the rules . . .

I am so excited to meet someone new! Your family looks like fun too! Love the buildings - I need to take some time and get to know you and your blog.

Not sure if your are interested or not . . . if you are interested in my little blog - I would love to invite you!!! If you are interested, just email me and I will type your little email address into the invitee section and then you can just log right on.

The reason I made my blog by invitee only is on my blog - not enough room here.

Thanks,

Julie of Blessed with Five
