Days of Fall.....



Happy Fall!
This post is picture heavy! Fall is one of our favorite seasons...Here is what the Kinders have been up to!




Every year we visit our favorite Pumpkin Festival. It's our kick off into the season! We haven't missed one in 8 years!










The Kids favorite is always the Hay bales and the Giant pumpkins on display!


Nothing like driving along......and out of no where... some cows...=) They escaped somehow. We managed to heard them with our car back into the village we had just driven through, and a few minutes later the farmers were on the hunt for 'em.. The kids thought this was very fun! =)


                                      We also found out we are expecting Kinder #3 !




Another fall favorite is finding chestnut trees and picking all nuts, and bringing home the shells. They are prickly little things... not to fit into a pocket so easily...=)



                                                                Lots of cool sunny days...









We had one litter of 4 bunnies this August, and to our surprise one day, ANOTHER litter! This time there are 6 baby bunnies. They are a week and a half old.


Isn't new life amazing? while we still haven't given away the other 4, we are so excited about these little guys... The kids are really enjoying watching them grow.


The Kinders both started Horse Lessons this fall. It's gone really well. JT was extremely afraid of Horses, and now....he is awesome! No fear, and doing so well. KT just loves it...



                                   Our Homeschool group went on a field trip to the pumpkin farm!




                                                              Library days.......




Fall Craft Time! Last year we got into Needle Felting. This is a totally fun craft if you haven't tried it yet. It's great for all ages from about 5 & up....  This time we felted pumpkins.....







Aren't they adorable???









                KT is spending more and more time in the kitchen with me, and learning basic recipes.




Robots! My kids have been so into creating robots out of any recylable at home the last few months. I found a small kit online for them to try, since they wanted to make a REAL one. KT usually wants to do everything JT does, so I had to find a robot that was do-able for both! We did a Tin Can Robot.  totally worth it! They loved it, and it still works!





All year I have been learning to make skirts and little things for KT. Here is one I made out of a vintage table cloth. It turned out really cute!



And Lastly, we have been working on the house little by little. Here is our Front Entry way. This to me, is the  weirdest room, and most awkward to re-do (on a budget).... it looked like a mobile home entry way from the 1970's...

The walls, were paneling, the doors were a different color wood, and as you can see the ceiling above is another shade of brown... We painted the paneling, no other choice at this time... because of the way it was installed.Then there was DIFFERANT paneling on the wall with the doors... i just put wallpaper batten and board on it.  The doors were solid wood, so I decided to paint them till I find doors I love ( it seems all the doors here are fake wood, and that light modern color). I also added decorative trim to the basement door to give it some character.  then I added some molding to the top, and we are putting up white ceiling tiles. Now, we just have to add the molding to the top and add lighting!




















Thank you for visiting!! More soon!

Wow! LOVE the entry transformation! It looks great! I would be so nervous to paint the doors that bright, but it was worth the risk! They are gorgeous!
