Fall Happiness

I love fall, especially here in Cottonwood. This is the first fall-feeling October we've had in four years. Bring on the chilly mornings!

You know how teachers always wanted you to show your work - not just the finished product? Well here's the end result of picking out, cutting, gutting and carving - with the evidence of all our hard work to get these beautiful jack-o-lanterns.

Sometimes it's fun to go to the Grand Opening of a store, or even the re-grand opening of a Walgreen's over in the next town - especially when they've got hot dogs and cotton candy, a clown that makes balloon animals and face painting. Hey, it's something to do. Audrey says it's the best party we've ever been to.

We need an apple orchard for these kids. I'm buying 8-10 pounds of apples a week these days. I know, there are worse things they could beg for.
