autumn day on our little mountain


A stormy day, which stayed sunny long enough for us to enjoy our picnic.

We tried to bake our bread to be shaped like oak leaves. Kinda worked.

Chloe baked some ginger cookies. Stars, hearts and trees.
Fourteen stars - for the 14 years of marriage Jason and I celebrated on this day.
Hearts - lots and lots of them, for lots and lots, and lots, of LOVE.
Trees - because we have our own forest now.

Such lovely autumn colored bits of yarrow.
Thunder in the distance.
Darkening skies. Falling rain.

Earlier in the week there were evening moonlight horse rides.

October is ending...

Oh, how wonderful and beautiful, Renee. Moonlit horsey rides? Oh, I know someone who would be there in a heartbeat (with Mama, too). Your little girls are simply beautiful...enjoy these precious days.

You have captured some great moments and art! I love how the cookies represented your life with your husband.

You capture the essence of family so well in your blog.

Much love, Nicole

Hello beautiful friend. It's me popping in again, once in a while I make a post and visit some others. I have so much to tell you. The girls are beautiful and littlest is soooo adorable. How fast they grow. The twins are 17 months already and just too cute. I hope to write you a long letter soon. Miss you and give all the girls a kiss from me. xxx
