Miscellany Monday

It's time for pumpkins, mums, scarecrows and all things fall! Yipee! I love me some FALL!!! And, I love me some Miscellany Monday with Carissa.

The big girl bed.........

 Our Princess graduated to a toddler bed about 6 months ago and about 2 months ago she made the switch to a double bed.  She was so excited and has had no trouble adjusting whatsoever.  I think her bedding is just some of the cutest I've ever seen.  She's growing up in so many ways and I must say I absolutely love the toddler stage.  Just so blooming cute in just about everything they do and say.

Stepping out of "the box"....

I would classify my style of clothes as conservative but I have recently stepped out of "my box."  When I first saw all the brightly colored jeans and pants, I certainly didn't see myself in them.  Well, I broke down and tried some on and hummm, I bought myself a pair.  They look red in this picture, but can I just tell you that they are orange, yes, Halloween orange!  I thought I might tame them down a bit with the white shirt.  I'm thinking I might just have to have another color.

The breakfast of champions......
A couple of years ago I started eating crunchy peanut butter spread on vanilla wafers for breakfast.  Well, I saw this Dark Chocolate Dreams spread a couple of weeks ago and decided it might just be what I needed to "top them off."  And, it is more than delicious.  Four of these fellas with a good cup of piping hot coffee will get your day started off in grand style. I promise!

The Pumpkin Patch............

One of our local churches has a Pumpkin Patch this year.  I took Hanna Beth over to wander through and to snap a few pics this past Saturday.  She thoroughly enjoyed everything about it except the scarecrows.  When we came upon the first one she looked up at me and said, "I not like him CiCi."  As I said earlier, toddlers just say the cutest things.
Your prayers...........

You may well remember this photo from a previous post of mine.  This is my very special friend, Martha, that has been battling breast cancer since July, 2011.  It appears that she has cancer in two other places and Martha is so despondent and discouraged.  She will go to Houston for biopsies this week to confirm the suspicions of the Drs.  Please pray that the Drs. suspicions are wrong and that she will be able to beat this terrible disease.  It has made my heart so sad but I know the Lord is still on His throne and even when we don't understand, He is still there.

  2. I love your orange slacks. They look so cute on you! Pumpkin patches are such fun. But kids do say the cutest things, don't they? So sad to see so many going through issues with breast cancer. I too have friends who have suffered through this. Will keep your Martha covered in prayer.

    Blessings and love,
