Just Because

Hello Fall!

Today is officially the first day of fall and I am so happy it's finally here.  Don't get me wrong - I love Love LOVE summer, especially this past one.  We had so much time playing and being with family and having new adventures that it was really hard this year to see the kids go back to school.  

 We visited church history sites on our way back from Iowa.  We went to Nauvoo, Carthage, Independence and Liberty.  What an awesome experience!  I was grateful to not only be able to be there myself, but also for my kids to see it, too.  So very thankful for the early church members and all the sacrifices they made.

 Saw the Mississippi River!


We spent most of the summer in Utah.  Nothing beats summer in Utah!  Family parties, parades, fireworks, time with cousins, and lots and lots of swimming.  It was a blast and we loved every minute of it but now it's time for...        Fall!

It's time for changing leaves and wearing jackets.  Even though I won't see much of it here in Vegas, I know it's happening in Utah and that's good enough for me.  I am excited for new tv shows, hot soups, and snuggling under blankets.  I am even a little excited that football is here.  Yes, I said it.  But nothing makes me more excited than the fact that 
is almost here!

When it comes to Halloween, I am definitely my mother's daughter.  Love everything about it!  The pumpkins!  The decorations! And ALL that candy!  I can wait patiently for another week to bust out the decorations but there is no waiting once the candy hits the shelves.  Who can possibly resist a delicious Reese's peanut butter pumpkin?  Seriously, who?

Happy Fall, Y'all!
