Don't Blink - You'll Miss It!

We have this beautiful wooded area behind our back fence. I took this picture 9 days ago, when the leaves were at their peak colour.The next picture was taken this morning! The trees are almost completely bare, with only a few brave leaves hanging on. Isn't that crazy?! I love the fall season, but it just doesn't last very long around here. We have to hurry up and enjoy it while we can!Before the leaves disappeared, we did manage to get out and enjoy the beauty of it all. I love these next pictures of Sara and Sky's little hands holding their treasures for me to see! (First one is Sara and the second one is Sky.)


Thanksgiving Day is just 2 days away for us! We'll be having our turkey dinner at my in-laws house. I'm bringing the hashbrown casserole and the pumpkin bread. Mmmm, I can hardly wait! It still seems a little strange to have Thanksgiving in October, but I'm getting used to it. It would be even more strange to have Thanksgiving at the end of November, when winter has officially set in, though! Sara and Sky have been working on a poem to say for everyone on Thanksgiving Day called, "Pumpkin Poem." They've done an amazing job memorizing! It's really cute. I'll try to get it on video so all of you can see it too.
I know I've been absent from the blogging world for awhile. I was pretty sick for two whole weeks at the end of September, and still haven't felt like myself since then. We've also been busy with school and getting into the new routine. It's been good and the kids really seem to be enjoying themselves. I think they were bored! And of course, we are still trying to get settled into the new house. We're slowly, but surely getting all the pictures hung and decorations arranged. I'll take some pictures soon, so you can see the finished product! Right now, it's time to go make supper!

YEAH you're back!!! Glad you're feeling better!!! Check out "Ranting from a Crazy Woman" she left a sweet post to both of us!
Also, I think I would like Thanksgiving at the end of Oct... not so close to Christmas. Even more so if fall was a short as it is there!
LOVE YOU!!

Hey Peggy. Glad to hear you are feeling better, I'll be praying you get back to 100%. Mystery shopping is where you have to apply to different companies & they send you to various establishments, to see how the employees are doing. It may be a retail place to see if the employees know the different products & how they treat their customers. Or the one we did was a restaurant; we had to rate customer service, food quality, & timing, i.e. how long did it take to serve various courses. I'm sure they do them in Canada, but I don't know where. I'll check the ones I do to see if they work in Can.
Peace & prayers, -Gail

I love this time of year, but the beautiful leafs go away so quickly. Glad you are feeling better.

What lovely colours - that's what the city looked like when we got back from our cruise 3 weeks ago ... and then I got up this morning and everything was covered in this white stuff. Snow, I believe it's called. Now all the leaves are gone, dragged onto our brownish lawn by the wind and the snow. Wish I had taken the time to collect some of those beautiful fall leaves while I had the chance. I'll just enjoy your photos for a while instead.

Miss ya!!
