If I could sum up our October in one word it would have to be LEAVES! We admired them, we played in them we raked them, we were literally buried in them! October at our house was all about the leaves.

When we moved into our house last year it was just before the transition between leaves and snow...so we had no idea just how many leaves our trees made in average fall...and truth be told, there came a point when we wished we had never found out. The first few dumps were fun, the tree in our front yard turned this amazing deep red color and looked like it was flaming, daddy and Caleb shared their first experiences playing in the leaves, and mommy got some great pictures of her little "leaf angel." But after a while enough was enough. It got to the point where not only could we not fit all of the leaves in our trash can each week, but if we went with out a day of raking they were staining every piece of cement on our property. Excuse me but I'm not sure we signed up for all of these leaves.

Now we're cutting back all of the trees for winter and attempting to clean up all leaves that escaped prior rakings as we prepare for small white flecks to fall from the sky and I never thought I'd say this but this new falling friend is quite welcome...thats right take away the leaves and bring on the snow...oh wait that means shoveling and snowblowing and slippery ice patches...come on there has to be a happy medium...and sadly enough I think here in Utah we call that medium ...Summer (ha!)

However our family would like to offer our gratitude to the beauty and fun that October's Leaves afforded us and ask that that they might take some mercy on us next year!

Tuesday Talk: WORDS

What is your favorite word? sooooo....Its how I end every sentence so I guess it would be my most frequent word...not necessarily my favorite....hmmmm I love the word fortuitous but its hard to bring it in to a conversation...I'm not even sure I now what it means...but I like it!
What is your least favorite word? I hate the word Pussy Willow, I so wanted them at my wedding but just couldn;t say that to a florist without blushing...so I had sticks instead :(
What turns you on? People who are smart and funny and caring, like my husband.
What turns you off? People who are extremely good looking and know!
What sound or noise do you love? Its a tie between a rainstorm and breaking glass
What sound or noise do you hate? The ticking of a clock...maybe because I'm always late or always have tons to do?!
What is your favorite curse word? I don;t really have a favorite, I try not to use them in general...but I say OMG alot...and I feel bad about it...becuase when I say it I make no connection with taking the lord's name in vein at all...its just a phrase or a figure of speech to me...so I have to work on that!
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? I would love to be an artist or a writer...something where I can use my creativity!
What profession would you not like to do? Stock Hot Dogs and Bacon ....oh wait thats what I'm doing now!
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? You are officially debt-free...no seriously...money is the source of all that stresses me in life...so I hope there is absolutely no money or bills in heaven!
