Things i look forward to in the Fall:
Our church thingy we have at our place
My birthday (i still look forward to that, even though i'm old now!)
Moving bulbs around & planting new ones
Less outdoor maintenance
Making soup again
How about YOU?
And this can be taken a step further, in that i should enjoy the season of life i am in right now and not wish for the next season. I think i'm pretty good with that but it doesn't hurt to be reminded, since we all have our days!!
So ok Fall, come and do what you gotta do!

Diced tomatoes with green chillies (or w/out the chillies if you don't want them spicy)
Top with tortilla, spray with pam.
Bake at 450 for 1o minutes (yes, 450!). Take care not to get distracted, or they will get a little dark, as pictured below :) still good....
Serve with sour cream. These have been a lifesaver, particularly for lunches, when i just don't know what to make!

We're having a wedding here next month, so i figured i better weed around the barns! I haven't done that at all this summer. It's just not priority. So it took me 4 days, but it's now done. We get this horrible stuff called Bermuda grass that invades my beds. It spreads under the ground and quickly.
We found someone to live in our apartment. She's moving in on Labor Day. We're excited to have her here. She's a missionary in Haiti and is back for a time, not sure how long. So we're doing a few things to the apartment before she moves in. I warned her the boys will get attached. Ben's already said "i love you" and he's only met her once!
Rod's lower back and neck are in bad shape right now. He's very good at managing his pain, he doesn't complain. But i know it's bad. He has a history of back problems and surgeries, but hopefully this will come and go, like it usually does.
Life is never boring with little boys. I don't know how many times I've looked at them and said "How did you break that??" "Where did you find that??" Or in a recent circumstance "How did you kill that?" (ask me later if you want details on that one). And i still haven't figured out just what is so funny about boogies and poop. It's a mystery i tell you. With that said, i always wanted boys and i wouldn't have it any other way. We are very grateful for 2 dedicated Grandmas who help out on a regular basis. Rod and i said we probably wouldn't have had a 4th child if it wasn't for them, just knowing they will help when needed and give us breaks. I really believe that's true. So, THANK YOU ladies!
Clay turned 4 months old this week! wow. He eats solid food like a champ, i can hardly believe how easy it is compared to the twins. I don't even wear a bib on him, he just woofs it right down. applesauce, banana, green beans, and rice cereal. We're not really on a schedule with it, i just give it to him when i have time or when i feel like it. (I'm a pediatrician's dream come true in more ways than one :) He's always moving around so i really haven't gotten any pictures lately that aren't blurry. But here's a recent one. Adam let him borrow George for a little.
It was nice to sit down and reflect a bit on the week. Now i have someone that needs tended to in the bathroom.

In the chrysalis:
We will set him free after I'm done looking at him...maybe tomorrow. Truly amazing.
