it's snowing!

Caleb Roscoe - 16 months

And he's loving it!  He could sit right here all day and watch the snow fall and gather on the trees and ground.  I love watching him take it all in.  Such wonder and excitement at experiencing something for the first time. (last year he was just too little to understand!)

tot school // fall

Fall is by far our favorite time of year around here.

Over the past few weeks we've soaked up the last bits of the warmer weather with lots and lots of nature walks.

We visited the apple orchard earlier in the season, but we've been enjoying loads of apples for weeks and weeks.  We used some of the apples to make some applesauce one afternoon, which he loved!

Porch Progress.

So I realized recently that we never shared our new screened in porch.  I didn't do a very good job of documenting the process...but I was able to find a few pictures to show you!  

I found this photo from July. 
Dan did such an amazing job getting the railing up before Caleb's birthday party!  After the railing was up, the screening process didn't take too long.  But then the garden and yard took priority. 

Then later this fall, Dan re-built the steps!  Unfortunately, the steps will need to "cure" over the winter so we'll have to wait until spring to paint them white.

We cleaned up the flower beds this past weekend and planted some new bulbs, I'm excited to share pictures of the FINISHED project this spring with all the flowers in bloom!

And just to refresh your memory, here's a little before!!

happy halloween from our wiggly little rooster

Caleb HAD to be a rooster this year!  

His costume was a super easy DIY: hot glued some feathers to a onesie, added a red comb to a white hat (I made this hat from another onesie), and tape a pair of stuffed rubber gloves to his shoes!!  (check out more details here

Knowing that Caleb probably wouldn't be into the whole trick or treating thing, we decided to just stop by our church's trunk-or-treat event.  Unfortunately, it was a cold, rainy, windy, and SNOWY evening, so after about 3 cars, he was done!  We spent the rest of the time inside warming up with some cider then headed to our friends Chris & Alyssa's to play and hand out candy to other trick-or-treaters who braved the cold.

Despite the cold and SNOW, I think our little rooster had a great evening!  Maybe next year mama will remember to charge the camera batteries so we get some better pictures!
