Fall (Harvest) Festival 2013

Well, if there's one thing I may be known for it's loving FALL! Especially here in Virginia...the colors are vibrant! Maybe the most beautiful I've ever seen them (trees/leaves).  I can only imagine it's due to all the rain we had this Summer.  Either way... I'll take it! ;)

Along with loving Fall and this time of year... I think friends are catching on to really enjoying our (hopefully;) ANNUAL Fall/Harvest Festival... complete with a potluck, Corn-hole, playground/space to run and play, and a piñata! Side note: we were supposed to have "bobbing for Apples" but did not have access to water for the bucket (maybe next year!:).

I don't think the remaining pictures need a description... I love that our sweet friend, Gianna is all decked out in her princess dress while hitting the piñata with all her strength! Cute stuff...

Our batman (Hudson) has a good swing... He loves piñatas! :)

They were all very determined!  I'll be providing some kind of piñata at every (outdoor) party...always a hit! No pun intended. ;)

Who doesn't love a leaf-pile?

More to come...
Happy Fall Y'all! :)

Halloween 2013

I don't think these pictures need my additional "narrating." We had a "spook-tacular" HALLOWEEN!!! ;)

Our little pinky won't see MaryBradford without her baby doll. ;)

Let the Trick-or-Treating begin...

2 Captain America's, Princess, Police Officer and a Girl Super Hero...

Movie night after the fun festivities...
A fun HALLOWEEN night was had by ALL!!!! ;) ;)

We love FALL!!!

Our family loves Carters Mountain...

It will always be a fall tradition for apple picking, apple donuts, watching the sunset and picking out a pumpkin. (Not great pictures but at least you can see what we're up to!;)

Carving our pumpkin.... I took a great picture on my iphone of our Jack-o-lantern all lit up... I posted it to Instagram! It's awesome. ;)

Field Trip to the Pumpkin Patch :)

This past Tuesday I went with Hudson's preschool (PreK) class on their Field Trip to the Pumpkin Patch.

Learning about the "life cycle" of a pumpkin.

Hudson with his buddy, Anna Brooks.

Hudson has a precious class...all the kids are so sweet and really get along well.  I can't believe this is his "final" year of PREschool (tear :*) ).

Smith Mountain Lake

Unfortunately I didn't take very many pictures while we were at the lake (too busy:) but it was such a glorious day that I just had to share the view from our adorable lake house (we rented;).

Trying to play "catch up"

We went to Smith Mountain Lake back in September to celebrate Brad turning the BIG 3-0...and to just enjoy LIFE, LOVE and FRIENDSHIPS!!! :) An amazing day of sunshine, good food, fellowship, a little chaos, a lot of LAKE and a ton of FUN! ;)

Going to Carter's Mountain to watch the SUNSET is always a glorious time! ;)

Brother/Sister Love...

Playing football...

Watching her big bro play soccer. ;)
