There was no school on Wednesday so the kids and I spent the day shopping. The kids needed clothes for this upcoming cold weather.  We needed birthday gifts.  We needed pumpkins.  We needed groceries.  So we embarked on an all day adventure.  We went to the outlet mall, the regular mall, Earl May, and Target. After an exhausting day, the best reward was Coldstone ice cream!  The kids had oreo cream filling with various mix-ins. I varied from my usual raspberry/cheesecake/white chocolate chips variety to swap the raspberry for PUMPKIN! Oh My Goodness it was soooo yummy!

On Friday night, Reagan and I baked our pies for our annual church dinner.  She loves to run the apple peeler/corer/slicer and help with the pie making. 

Saturday morning 17 of us from our church went around our small town and raked leaves for about 3 hours.  We call ourselves the Community Crew and even had shirts made up! We were able to complete 7 lawns and had a lot of fun doing it!  Since not all of the leaves have fallen, we just may have to do it again!
We we moved into our house nearly 8 years ago, one of the things we absolutely loved were our backyard trees.  We have been so grateful that the previous owners invested in these gorgeous trees. They have provided us wonderful shade in the summer and beautiful leaves in the fall.  If you are looking for a tree for your backyard, I highly recommend the Autumn Blaze Maple!
May you all have a wonderfully blessed week!
