miscellany (fall) monday

 Well Friends it's Monday and October is just moving right along.  Here are just a few things going on in our neck of the woods.

1. Help in the yard (yeah, I am SO creative with my titles).  Rondell has been taking on the major task of cleaning up the leaves in our yard.  Yesterday Caleb decided to help dad out and I am sure Rondell had no problem accepting the assistance.  I think Caleb enjoyed it too (check back with me when he's 15):

2.  The Year of the 5.  15 days from now I turn 35.  My grandmother always talked about how all of her grandchildren are 5 years apart.  And if it was what my cousin and I call "The Year of the 5" she would be extra excited.  So, this is one of those years and it makes me think of & miss my Granita and makes me grateful to her...that she cherished something so simple about her grandchildren.  And we absolutely cherish her.

3.  Welcome :)  Rondell makes fun of me because a lot of my Fall decor says "Welcome."

He may or may not be onto something :)

Write here.

Caleb looks like he is having a blast with that leaf blower:) My boys love to help outside too...but I wonder how long it will last! Have a great week Kelli!

I think the "welcome" thing just goes to show how open and welcoming you are. You invite everyone in. :o)

I'm laughing at your little guy with the leaf blower--how delighted he looks!

I'll be 35 about 16 days after you--I think I got my math right. Year of the 5s. I like it. Your Granita was one special lady. :o)

Happy almost Birthday! :) And you know, you're a very warm, welcoming kind of gal. It's no wonder all of your decor states that! :)

Why wouldn't you say "Welcome"...? That's how you roll. :)
Love Caleb's little smile, but Kelli!!!! Look at that fabulous branch on the ground!!! Get it, spray paint it gold and hang Welcome from that!!!

Girl, to that I say... at least Rondell notices :)

Caleb looks thrilled to be helping!! And you are right he won't be quite so thrilled when he is fifteen unless maybe he's helping out around the house before a girl comes over...
Aww. Your Granita sounds like she was very special.
Oh, Kelli. You are a welcoming person. The welcome signs don't surprise me at all!!
