Fall 2013

 A friend at church brought us a chainsaw that his dad wasn't using and it has been very helpful to cut up limbs around our property.
 Peter is getting used to it.  He's excited to finally learn how to use one.
 Peter's sister sent Cecily this neat hula hoop for her birthday.

 Nothing like falling asleep reading.
 Somebody got an umbrella at the consignment sale.  :)
 She also got new clothes and hairbands, but the umbrella is the most exciting!
 The boys hit a school of crappie at the river and were pretty HAPPY about their catch.
 School clothes!  This is the day after I shopped at the consignment sale.
 I love fall outside, but a fall afternoon indoors can be awfully nice too.
 Here are some photos of our woods that I took on a hike with the kids one day.
 The back of the house and our van.

 A bonfire to rid ourselves of some unwanted items.  :)
This picture is because of Benny.  He got Elijah dressed up and posed him and wanted me to take his picture.  I got the hat at the consignment sale for $1 and thought it would be pretty cute on Elijah.
The leaves are almost gone now and Thanksgiving is drawing near.  Good-bye to fall.

What a wonderful post. So many nice pictures of your family. I love the ones of Millie and her new umbrella - skipping with your new umbrella is just so special (at least it looked like skipping); The one of Samuel reading is so nice, and Elijah dressed up for Fall.... There is a nice comment for each one. You have such a nice piece of land. It is just perfect for your family.

Thank you for sharing, Julie. Love to each of you, Kathy
