miscellany monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

1.  Fall is HERE!!!  The kids, my mom and I went apple picking yesterday and had such a great time.  It's funny how it really only takes a few minutes to fill up the bag with apples.  Both kids picked from the trees and loaded up the bag.  Now we have enough apples to make plenty of apple crisp.  Here are a few pictures from the outing:






2.  Did you know that air costs money...air!  I had to take these pictures as we (and by we I mean Rondell) were adding air to our tires.



3.  I think tonight might just be the night that I try the Pumpkin Spice latte from Starbucks.  I wanted to get one yesterday before church, but I didn't make it in time.

4.  My oldest will be 7 next week...SEVEN!  When did she grow up?  I'm trying to debate whether or not I want to be adventurous and make her cupcakes or just buy them from the store...I think she'll be happy either way.

I still haven't had a pumpkin spice latte...gotta get one. BUT it is so stinkin' hot here, I don't want coffee during the day. I want fall weather BAD!

I love the pics of apple picking...you babies are so beautiful. I love that Caleb is smiling super big :)

Kelli said...

Beautiful babies! :) Looks like they had a great time, too! Those are the kinds of days in which memories are made. :)

Rach said...

Those are some cheesy grins your kiddos have! :o) I LOVE them!

Can you BELIEVE they charge for air?!? Crazy!

Lily, Ellie and I will be apple picking in the next week or so. Woo hoo! :o)

Time does go by so fast. I love the pumpkin spice at starbucks. YUM Yes the cost of air is ridiculous. It is air for goodness sake.
Can't wait to go apple picking here. Cute pictures

Yes, yes!! Do it! Have a pumpkin spice latte!! It's so good. I have to agree with Becca...Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks = living. :) I'm so glad fall is upon us! I love those pics of the kiddos picking apples!!!

What a fun trip. I love the kids in that bright red chair. I am hoping to get all my fall decorations out this week.
Hope you have a great day!

There aren't many things for free anymore...but air...seems silly doesn't it! I love the apple pics! I can't wait to go! Alex has a field trip in a few weeks I hope I can go with! I haven't had a PSL this year...I haven't had one in so long...they are good! I did buy pumpkin ice-cream today though, yum!

they do grow up fast! boo-hoo! Cupcakes are good no matter what! My birthday is coming up too! I will probably make my own cupcakes, ha!

Debra said...

Love that big chair your kids are in. So cute.

My daughter always prefers me to buy cupcakes instead of make them. I don't feel quite as guilty then when I buy them. :)

I am so jealous that you got to go apple picking! I wanted to go so bad when we were in NY but we just didn't have time! Maybe I need to come visit you and pick some apples:)

Kelly @ Blessed Mommy, Blessed Wife said...

Precious pics of apple picking! I try not to be envious...but I'm a little green with this one!

The paying for AIR gets me every time. Only in America...

You know what's funny? Almost every.single.Sunday we are running too late for me to get Starbucks before church! It's become a little game and about 75% of the time there are too many people at the drive-thru so we have to pass it by to get to church on time.

Can't wait to hear what you do with the cupcakes, ha! I'm going to have to take A LOT of easier routes in the coming days so I know what my outcome would be :) You're right though - kids don't really care when it comes to that kind of stuff!

Awhh yes fall has arrived but the temps are still in the 90's in Georgia...send me some cooler temps down here...

I would love to go Apple picking...I think there is a place in North ga and I need to check it out. I saw where some people went to one down this way.

Yep, cupcakes sound yummy right about now...she will love them either way you go I am sure. My son just turned 18 last week...yes they grow up way to fast so cherish each day, girlfriend!

Those are great pix! Your kids are beautiful. (I got a pumpkin spice latte yesterday. Meh. I still like thegingerbread lattes the best.)

Hi Kelli! I haven't checked in with you in a while. Have enjoyed getting caught up with your blog. I love the picture of your cute kiddos in that huge red chair! It reminds of a skit Lilly Tomlin used to do for Sesame Street, I think. She would sit in this huge rocking chair and pretend like she was a little girl. Anyway, hope all is well!
