What a week! 40+ hours at work, a luncheon, a 4th birthday and "normal" life too. All I can say is that I was dragging by Saturday night. Here is a peek of the week.
I snapped this on my way to work. This is a very common sight around here right now.
Farmers tending to their fields. There is a very distinct smell that goes with this too, but you'll just have to imagine that.
Today Kyla had a field trip to the apple orchard for school. I had to work so Kevin went with her. They picked apples, chose a gourd, went on a hayride and had apple cider.
I love this shot! Thanks to Mrs. Roeder for capturing it!!
Today was my day off, but typical me, I tried to cram everything I am not able to do on other days into this one! I had to take this first picture. Everyday we take Ella to kindergarten. (she then rides the bus home) This is what she does everyday before she goes in.
She is the lip gloss queen! I find it hilarious, Kevin..not so much.
Kyla and I ran errands after we dropped her off. We ended at Meijer for a bunch of things, ran into a dear friend and then Kyla finished off with this.
How can you say no to the pony ride when it is only a penny?!
After the kids got home, the boys had piano and after piano lessons I took them to pick their pumpkins. This is my favorite pumpkin....
...because all of my pumpkins are in it!
I had to run to the grocery store for some last minute items for the teacher luncheon I was doing on Thursday. When I went in everything outside was nice. When I came out.....
it was pouring! Then I was cold, but we need the rain really desperately!
Today was a luncheon at Kyla's school honoring Mrs. Capek. For one of the table pieces I took this idea from Mimi at He&Me+3's post last week. Thanks Mimi!
Filled with all of Mrs. Capek's favorites.
I sure love these ladies and are so very blessed that they have touched my kids' lives and mine. I also am blessed to call them friends!
At school today Kyla made "Apple pizza". She brought it home and was so proud! Here she is sharing a bite with Ella.
I also tried to get a picture of some of the colors here. This picture is pathetic in comparison to what I have been seeing everyday, but it's what I could snap.
I just love the beauty that God reveals in the fall! Absolutely magnificent!!
Worked until 5:00 then it was home for a very special 4 year old's birthday!
The all important singing and blowing out the candles! Grammie jumped in to keep the hair out of the fire!
And opening presents.
Happy birthday Kyla! Your contagious giggle, animated facial expressions and "attitude" are a constant source of joy for me. You are a strong little one and I pray that you will always use that strength! I love you sweet one!!
And may I finish by saying, how can my baby possibly be 4?!!
That's enough for me for one week! Hope you have had a fun and less busy week!!
