Sunday Snapshot- Grapes and hidden treasures

Grape picking was part of our October activities. My Dad and brother in law are avid wine makers so with it comes some time in the vineyard.  Of course I love to pick but what I really love is to take photos there and look who I found under those wines! 

There were a ton of grapes it seemed!  They were so pretty with all the fall leaves around them. 

Then as I looked around I didn't find these two under any vines they prefer to be on top on the world climbing whatever they find.

Oh October is almost gone. I can't believe it.  I am still loving the colors they are amazing right now...maybe time for just a couple more photo shoots before they say goodbye!

Apples and Pumpkin

The other day the kids, all four of them, asked to make pies. As with everything at our house they all had their opinion about their favorite kinds. It came down to pumpkin and apple.  So we had a  rare afternoon free and pies we did make!

 I let them do it in their own way.  It is hard not to have an opinion or fix this or that but truth be told I was busy running from kid to kid to worry too much about the details.

We ended up with two wonderful pies but mostly I ended up with memories. I really hope when I am old I remember these days. Not the big event days but the little days that make up life. One day I really going to miss these eight little hands in my kitchen helping.

Changing seasons

The truth is we don't have a lot of trees in our yard so when our kids see leaves in a yard they can't wait to play.

Katie spent her time collecting leaves "to save".  Andy is all about playing any game that involves a soccer ball or football. He is constantly throwing or kicking a ball it seems. I can hear them hitting the house or bouncing on the roof. 

Fall however may be short lived as we had our first snow this week. That too excited the kids in every way possible. They quickly started thinking of snowmen and hot chocolate. 

As for me oh please let there be more fall. I am not ready for the beauty to leave and the bare branches to come. I am not ready for "where are my gloves" and "these boots don't fit" so maybe fall can hang on a little longer!

Favorite Friday Photo-A quarter over

One quarter into middle school and Riley is loving life.  I spent some time worrying how he would do with this transition.  Those were moments I didn't need to spend worrying. 
He has been playing a couple games a week and even though he is so tired afterwards you can tell he just loves the competition and aggressiveness it brings out. 

He is dreaming of his own room.  I have told him by the end of the month I will have a room ready in the basement. Oh I am hoping I can make that goal...maybe just a little less sleep!

Wishing you all a great weekend!

Little by Little An Evening

This is what a night looks like at our house.  It is pretty hard to find a book that brings all four together ranging in ages seven to eleven.  Seems as those "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" seems to fit the bill for entertainment.

Have a great Thursday!
