Three Things

Three things that are making me happy right now:

1) Fall decor.  Ornamental corn (we used to call it "Indian Corn", but I'm pretty sure that's not PC...!), pumpkins, gourds, leaves in a rainbow of fall colors... Eliza likes to tell me each time we walk in the house that she hung the corn, she picked out that pumpkin, she hung up that halloween decoration (the mummy is her favorite)... she's really getting to understand the concept of decorating.  I am already looking forward to Christmas with her!

2) Beautiful fall weather (do you sense a pattern? we love fall around this house!)!  It is so gorgeous here right now so we are doing a lot of playing outside in the backyard and taking walks.

3) Baking.  Eliza is getting to the age where she can (sort of) help in the kitchen and it is SO much fun.  She has watched me cook and bake (and her Dada too), and for her to now be invited to help is totally rocking her world.  She pushes her chair up to the counter and helps us crack eggs, add the flour, stir... and she loves watching the mixer go "round round!"  I've dreamed of baking with her since before she was born, so this new stage is totally rocking my world as well :)


What's making you happy right now?


Alyssa said... awesome! So cute that she can help decorate and bake - maybe you've got the next Martha Stewart on your hands (without the whole jail time thing).

We love fall too!

I just love her little apron! So cute! We love fall around her too and are loving the fall colors around our house :)
