It is quickly becoming one of my favorite times of the year. Right before my eyes the cool green canvas outside is becoming brilliant shades of red and gold. Living in Ohio is not one of the most beautiful states for mountains. What IS beautiful is the 4 very distinct seasons that we have. When it is time for a change in season it is really a lift to my spirits. I love the new life and growth outside in the spring, the hot sunny summers, the cool crisp autumn, and even the cold frozen winters...(okay well I like those from inside the house with a roaring fire to keep us warm). But I do love to be able to marvel at the chages that we have.
With those changes also come the fall and Halloween decorating, pumpkins, cider, and changing leaves. Taylor has been asking... no scratch that.... nagging to try on and play in his new costume since we bought it at 90% off last November! Today I relented and let him put on his new Ninja outfit. HE is so excited. Logan is not as over the top but he also is checking out the costume from the back of the closet. I also bought Kendall's outfit last year, well we bought 2. They were really marked down and I got different sizes so she will either be a witch or a snuggly animal.
We just got back from a trip to Georgia for the South East Regional Llama show and boy was it a long way!!! We drove thinking that it would give us more time and flexibility in what we took. It was Kendall's first trip with Daddy, so far my Mom has went along to take care of her on these trips. I think they got along very well and she traveled very well for a 13 month old. It was about 10 hours in the car, we tried to work it around her sleeping schedule. The strange thing was while down there for the southern half of Tennesse and the Nrthern half of Georgia there was NO gas! The news said that 1 out of 10 stations was the average of stations that had any. People were trying to keep their tanks from running empty, it was really eerie and sad. It made us realize how all of this "real" world could crumble in a matter of days without something like that. Thankfully God's grace is much deeper than the surface security that we all seem to cling to.
