Yay for Fall! :)

As I am writing this entry, it is a brisk, windy 69 degrees outside! It is amazing! Ross, Mav and I have been enjoying this fabulous weather and ringing in fall with fun activities.

Let see, first off we fired up Mav's Kawasaki Power Wheels and he has been riding it in the street and in our house :) He hasn't quite learned how to steer it, but he definitely enjoys riding it! He calls it his "car".

Mav officially started his second month of preschool and he is still absolutely loving it! He is napping about 30-45 minutes and is eating all of his lunch. He tells me bye and just walks in like a big boy. This past week they got to have a pumpkin patch at the school, learned about the color orange and got to play in the "garage". On Friday, Mimmy and Aunt Mallory and I took Mav up to the pumpkin patch on Hall-Johnson to meet up with Annabelle Grace and her family. It was a bit hot, but we had fun. We went through the corn maze (where our kiddos held hands!), played in a old truck, took pictures, and had some awesome kettle corn.  We are gonna go back though when its cooler and maybe darker so we can see all the lights they have set up, go on the hayrides and see the petting zoo.

  So cute!

Since the fall holidays are now upon us, I have gotten crafty thanks to pinterest and made an awesome wreath for my front door, hung leaves around the door way, set out some pumpkins and added a pennant banner to our mantel. I love fall and all the decorations just make it feel more like the holidays.

Also, Ross and I celebrated our 4 year annivesary on the 6th. We went out to dinner at Tillman's Roadhouse in the Bishop Arts District in Dallas. The food was delicious! We had a trio of fries for appetizer, I had chicken fried steak for dinner (Ross had rib eye) and we had table side s'mores for dessert! YUM!!! Ross also surprised me with roses at our lunch at Celebrity :)

Well, since the Rangers are in the playoffs life is definitely put on hold for Ross :) No, but it is an exciting time in Ross's sports world and Mav likes to cheer them on now too! He likes to watch baseball on TV and yells "GO!!!" and talks about the baseball and the bats. He is definitely going to follow in Ross's sports fanatic footsteps!

Well, gotta get back to mom duties and do something productive while Mav is napping! Till next time! ;)
