I love Fall! Anyone who knows me knows I think Fall is the best time of the year. I love wearing warmers clothes, scarves, mittens, drinking pumpkin spice drinks, eggnog, the crisp feeling in the air, putting pumpkins out on the porch with Mr. Potato Head faces. I listen to Christmas music all year round, but I increase it starting in the Fall. I love that people are nicer, better tv programs and movies come out. Sledding, harvesting your garden, snowballs, snow angels, Christmas lights, cold noses, cinnamon and harvest smells, pumpkins, corn mazes, roasted almonds, and carolers. Food that holds all memories past comes out and is shared with old friends and new friends. Baked Pumpkin seeds, Julekage, Mom's fajitas, burritos and enchiladas(you wouldn't think she is from Denmark, but rather South America), homemeade bread, jams, cookies, soup, soup, soup, hot chocolate, (I am not the cider type). I love this year especially that Evan and I are pregnant, we are preparing to bring in one of God's beautiful children that He is entrusting to us. We are saving for a house, hopefully we will be homeowners in about a year:) We are slowly putting together our baby crib and looking for free baby stuff on freecyclelittleton yahoo group. Evan will finish his Master's program this Fall. I feel very blessed that we have support from family and friends, good doctors and church leaders. I am excited for the election process to be over with. I know who I want in office, but I know that whoever is elected is not all powerful, and the our Heavenly Father is still in control, and we need to have faith, so with that said, I will support whoever is in office, whether I voted them in or not. Well, I have blabbered enough, so I will end and post the eggnog pictures and others that made me excited for fall!
Love to you all!

Let's just say that Evan is a good sport!! Well, better than a good sport! I have had a lot of little moments, but last night topped them all. I was craving cookies, and we were already home, and neither of us wanted to go out, so we started calling around pizza places to see if any offered cookies for their dessert, and NO ONE DID!!! So then I wanted pizza, but not any pizza, Pizza Pipeline, from UTAH! Since I couldn't have any of those I started bawling. Evan thought I was joking, and then realized that I was really sad. Then he started laughing because it was funny I was crying over the food I wasn't able to have..so he left me to be sad, and needed to nap so he could work on his Master's program paper. He is trying to finish in a month. So then for the next 45 minutes I sulked and craved my cookies, and finally decided to go to Safeway and indulge. So I spent $44 on cookies, salsa, fruttie and cocoa pepples, spaghettios and salt and vinegar chips. And then on the way out I had to get a jamba juice for Evan and myself. So after Evan woke up, he found me eating all my treats, and just laughed at me. I know...it's the hormones, and I am not controlling them very well right now...we'll try for another day:) Good thing Evan is there to support me in all my craziness!! PS, I only ate a little, and then got bored of the food..I know..I am pyscho!!
