Happy First Day of Autumn!

Today, we celebrated the first day of Autumn!

We had scrambled eggs, old fashioned donuts and apple cider for breakfast.

After lunch we baked Pillsbury sugar cookies with pumpkins on them (I did plan to actually bake cookies from scratch, but...well...I'm 8 months pregnant and ran out of time!) and had a few candy corn.

We set out some of our Autumn decorations and enjoyed the rainy weather. :)

I just love this season of remembering God's provision for us throughout the year!

Here's another picture of Henry, just for fun.

Here's the newest member of our family - Henry.

He's 11 weeks old today and weighs just under three pounds! He's half Shitzu and half miniature poodle, so he has a very pleasant disposition, is great with the kids, rarely barks and doesn't shed! We love him already, even though he's not totally house broken yet. :) Abby is learning to be careful and slow down, while Allison has been a huge help - taking Henry outside, entertaining him, keeping him out of the kitchen, etc. Chris has been teaching him to "sit" and "fetch" - which Henry has been picking up really quickly.
