october has come and gone...
but, it was a busy month.
here are some highlights:

i chopped off my hair!
{mixed feelings on this decision made on a whim.}

enjoyed an evening hike with these two fun ladies.
it was an awesome hike and our reward at the top?
a picnic of brie, crackers, salami and wine...packed by erma.

loved decorating {our newly remodeled home} with fall leaves and pumpkins.
{i made the apothecary jars out of glass jars and wooden candlesticks.}

enjoyed a fall weekend with mimi and papa at their cabin.
{big tree.}
each of the kids had a friend with them....
everyone had fun hiking, playing cards, and eating yummy food.

on our way home from big tree we stopped at apple annie's.
we did some apple picking, sunflower gathering, and pie eating.

we came home with 50 pounds of apples!
i made several desserts and canned some applesauce.

this month, randi and i also participated in a cake decorating class.
it was lots of fun.  we learned some new things and laughed a lot!

and...football season is in full swing.
there are daily games in our front yard.

finally, we ended the month with a trip to the state fair.
as fun as it was...
i think we all agreed {well, maybe not cade}
that we did not need to go again next year.
or the next.
or the next.

and halloween...
cade was a ninja.
randi chose to hand out candy with her friend aubri.
{they did not dress up.}
