Fall is offically here...

Riley was so excited coming home from school and seeing all the leaves he can rack up and jump in. Paige she just looked for walnuts that fell! And yes she's in her sandles with no coat! She has this weird thing with her feet (dad it would drive you crazy, it does me) she's never in socks even when its cold outside. When I go check on the kids at night during the winter to make sure they're covered up her feet are always sticking out of the blanket. The rest of her is covered though. One night the kids slept in this pop-up tent they have and again I checked on them and Paiges feet were sticking out the door! Last week we went to a friends house for FHE and all the kids played football outside and it was probably like 30 degrees and there was Paige with no shoes or socks on running around. (yes dad I made her get her shoes on and her feet did get warm!!!) Its weird seeing her go outside with no shoes or wear socks in the house or even sometimes a coat or sweater because ME, I'm constantly cold! I thought maybe it was a girl thing that I got cold all the time but after seeing Paige, I guess it's just me!

OK I love fall--I love the crisp air in a mornings walk, all the different colors of the trees, watching the kids play in the leaves and coming in and having hot cider or hot cocoa, going to Green Bluff and getting pumpkins and going on hay rides, The pumpkin spice Doughnuts from Krispy Kreme (sooo good BTW!!!), Carmel apple bars, Pumpkin roll, and getting excited for the holiday's, oh and that my birthday is a few months away!!! Probably my one and only thing I like about Spokane (other then Adams family of course) is that it has the perfect Four Seasons! Spring -is perfect not too wet but wet enough to get the grass green again from winter and warm enough to go outside, Summer- it can get hot but it doesn't last. You have a few days that are really hot but then a rain storm comes and cools everything down and the Summer nights are perfect, they cool down enough to play outside with no bugs, and no humidity! Fall- I described it above, And Winter- I love watching the first snow fall but don't like driving in it. We have our share of snow but I can't complain. So if we were to move (which is a possibility) and someone asked me what I missed about Spokane I would say the weather...the Four Seasons!

I don't like snow anymore. After 20+ yrs not living in an area that has snow it would be hard to go back to one that does. I like to be able to go outside year round and not worry about the weather too much.
