Autumn's Loveliest Smile...

"Autumn, the year's last loveliest smile." :)
~William Cullen Bryan~

It has been a lovely autumn, indeed.  I have enjoyed the changing leaves, the cooling temperatures and the inching toward winter that always stirs excitement in me.  The trees are bare now, the remnant of the autumn wind. Seemingly over night the leaves danced off the trees when no one was looking.


Thanksgiving is coming in just a few days. 
As a family we have so much to be thankful for. :)

"Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;"
~Colossians 4:2~

12 Years and Nine Days Old

Annah had a birthday on October 28th.  Yes, it is now November 6th. 
Finally I have a birthday blog post for Annah.  :)  

A lot of things have changed over the years as Annah has grown. For instance, she doesn't suck her thumb anymore or wear a crown.

She's grown a lot taller than the flowers she loved
at her Nanny and Poppy's house.

She doesn't fall asleep just anywhere anymore.

She doesn't fit in her favorite red shoes
that she insisted on wearing
even when they were too small.

And she doesn't wear her brother's
clothes much anymore.

 But she still does have a thing for shoes!  :)

And we still love to celebrate her being in our family!

Happy Birthday, Annah!  We love you!
