made in china


On the very perfect of mornings....

we get up and out early. Right after the kids head off to school. There are some amazing views around the lake.

On this day a couple of weeks ago...I still hadn't unpacked coats...so I grabbed a sweater of mine to wrap around Suzy on our walk.



There are so many health benefits to walking. For one is a great stress reliever, good for your heart, and of course helps with weight, and so many more great benefits. Why don't I just make it part of every day? I let everything crowd out what I need to do.

I'm making more of an effort to work this into every day. Especially with great views like we have around here.
After we got back...Suzy and I worked on 2 pies for supper. Something we never do. In fact when the kids came home from school they wondered who was coming over since they saw pies. It was just a little treat for these people I love.

Love love love all her little silly faces. Suzy is so into "helping" in the kitchen right now. One thing she loves to do is "wash" dishes. "Wash" because really how clean can a 3 year old get them? But it keeps her entertained and happy. I quickly rewash them when she's not looking.:)

I'm loving fall...loving the change of seasons. How about you?

Quote of the day comes from when I was helping in Williams class on Tuesday.....
I was sitting at a table with 3 little kindergartners.

Me: "your name is Lexi, right?"
little girl: "no, my name is Kaitlyn. People always get me and Lexi mixed up because we both were made from China."

I LOVE IT!!!

What an amazing view!! It would be very easy to wake up to that every morning :) I had to laugh at the pies we just made two pumpkin pies the other day for no reason (well besides being prego and everything sounds yummy) but they did not last long in this house :)

must be something in the air-I felt like making glazed apple cookies the other day and managed to give most of them away and blessed others by my urge. Maybe I need to walk outdoors more! I have begun walking 3 miles a day twice a week with my sis-in-law and loving it too! It's been great accountability to stay moving!
