Changing of the Season
I hope everyone had a great Halloween...we had the $60 outfits, makeup, shoes, but no desire to go door to door, so the kids decided to invite a few friends over and watch a scary movie. I guess Anna and Jake are getting to that age when it just isn't "cool" to dress up for Halloween anymore. I will miss that, cause I love to take pictures and scrap their cute costumes, but I knew this day would come eventually!
I started the morning at the poles, like many of you, I'm sure. We are lucky to have our voting booths about 300 yards from our house. You can actually see it from our front yard! That is what I call really handy!
As some of you know, we live about 2 miles from the Ozark National Forest. It is so beautiful this time of year. On any given Saturday or Sunday, hundreds of motorcycles take this route to see the changing colors. We sometimes take it for granted, but it is truly stunning. Last weekend my mom, Jake and I drove to Ozone (in the National Forest) to get a burger from "The Burger Barn" and as we were driving up the mountain, I knew I had to go back and take pictures for my blog. So this morning I drove about 1/2 way up and stopped on the side of the road to snap some shots of all the beautiful colors. I won't bore you with all of them, but here are a few....
Our week is not too busy so far..we have cheerleading practice tonight, tumbling for Anna tomorrow night, a 7th grade ballgame in Dardanelle Thursday night, and our last home football game Friday night! On second thought, I guess we are pretty busy. I'm planning on making a trip to Little Rock Friday morning to Christmas shop at Holiday House. The Junior League of Little Rock sponsors this shopping heaven each year and I think I have only missed it once in the last 8 or so years!! It kind of gives me a jump start for Christmas (and Lord knows sometimes I need one!!) Anyway, hope you all have a great day and I'll try to blog again soon.
Bye for now.
