Welcome Fall

Hello and welcome.
Fall is in the air now.....The leaves are changing..the chipmunks and squirrels are gathering acorns and nuts for winter.
Time for stews,chili, warm soups, and apple or pumpkin pie..
coffee by the fireside....
children with hot cocoa and fresh baked cookies....
Fall is such a cozy time to me.I really love crafting in the fall. I love the smell of leaves in the fall when the kids come running through the door,a mixture of earthy dirt,acorns,apples and all those things boys find to get into during the hours after school.LOL Take time to enjoy everyday......Happy Fall and hugs,Jen
