This is our house post-Halloween. My pumpkins lasted forever this year because we never carved any and those huge Costco mums were so pretty. Of course, I chose pink. And the grass has been so green with cooler temps!
Speaking of Halloween, these two crazy kids had a ball this year. They stayed out longer than ever before and ran around the neighborhood with their friends. Our neighborhood is so fun and full of kids, and it's so fun to see everyone out and about.
We only accomplished about half of our fall bucket list this year. We certainly don't stress about it, it's meant to be fun, and who cares if we don't get to everything. We have so much to be thankful for.
We did manage to squeeze in a hike...a favorite among the kids...
And ate our fair share of cider donuts...
And finally, after living here for 5 years, we made it to the Nelson Atkins Museum. I loved the abstract art the most. And the grounds could not be prettier.
Steve and I had a long weekend in Chicago together. He was the best man in a wedding and the Cubs were playing that weekend. We had a ball!
And thank goodness for retired grandparents who love to babysit. We are blessed and happy when they agree to watch the kiddos so we can get away! My mom snapped this photo of the kids while they were fishing and we were gone. Kansas sunsets in the fall are just gorgeous.
We hosted Steve's family for Thanksgiving again this year. The visit is always filled with laughter, relaxation, and good food! I always gussy up the bar cart and use our china for special occasions. We don't use the dining room table much, but I always love moments when we do.
And little miss just turned 8 years old! I know I'm not old enough to have an 8 & 9 year old!! :) She is so full of life and spunk and is caring and mature and a little smartypants. I just love her spirit.
Thanksgiving this year marked 5 years of living in Kansas City. This is a big deal when you've lived in 6 states and none of them were longer than 3 years!
This is our home. We love it here. So happy life brought us here. Hope your fall was wonderful! xo
