Well hello there October 1st. I am so happy to see you.  We've got the AC turned off, the windows open, the pumpkin spice coffee brewing in the pot (decaf of course).  We've already made pumpkin bars and have the house decorated for fall because we were impatient waiting for you October, but we're considering making pumpkin chocolate chip cookies thanks to our friends mentioning.

October officially means it's birthday month (because that's how the Smith's roll) and traditions are made and continued!  Since I had to surrender going to cut down my own Christmas tree with moving to the big city...we started a new tradition last year with going to pick out pumpkins.  Robert says we only did it last year, so it's not yet a tradition....yet he's promised to take me again this year for my birthday...that makes it a tradition in my book.

What about you?  What are your fall traditions?  Do you get excited about October as much as I do?

Have a great weekend my friends!  We're heading north to the mountains with our high schoolers this afternoon.  Which means there will be spotting of fall foliage.  And this is where I do my happy dance!

I will NEVER forget your birthday - you share it with a pretty important fellow in my life - who turns 10 this year btw! :-)

So enjoy reading about "little hoot". I will have something special for him/her soon. Glad to know all is going well and that I will be able to keep up with you no matter where life takes me.

Love to you, Robert & the baby!
