Getting ready for Autumn

After summer, I usually get so excited about Fall.  I love the changing colors, apple cider, pumpkin picking, Halloween decorating (love it!), woodstove fires and those cool, crisp days (without rain, please...)
It is definitely a tradition to go pumpkin picking at a local farm.

Millie also had her annual Walk-a-thon at her schoolEvery year the money they raise helps pay for programs and technology in her building. Lucky us, it was a surprisingly warm, pleasant day and the kids were exhausted after running and walking so many laps.

Millie did 15 laps in about 1 1/2 hours.

Ta is this years Halloween costume.  My little mermaid girl!
At the Harvest Festival in North Bend to play some games, find some treats and walk thru the scary Haunted House.....and we even got to meet our neighborhood friends doing exactly the same thing.   Here's Millie getting ready to play some "Pin the Nose on the Witch."
A game of broom hockey.  Happy Halloween my friends!

Those are such beautiful fall pics. I remember being on that farm, Detlef recognized it right away also. And Millie looks so cute as a mermaid.
