Autumn Colors

My favorite time of year is fall.  I love all of the fall scents, pumpkins, sweaters, boots, and especially the fall foliage.  The last couple of years here in Arkansas we haven't had good fall foliage.  But this year the trees were gorgeous and I couldn't wait to go out and take some pictures of it. So last Sunday Chris and I took a drive down to Devil's Den to hike around the park and take some pictures.  We spoke with the park ranger who told us that the peak for the trees was the week before, but I still thought that the colors of the trees were amazing.  The weather was just right for hiking around and the water in the creek wasn't to cold so it turned out to be a perfect day for taking pictures. I was reading a list of fall quotes and this one was my favorite, "Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn." - Elizabeth Lawrence I hope that everyone got to go out and change the beautiful autumn colors.

Halloween Party 2013

Last week was our 8th annual Halloween party.  I can't believe this was our 8th party.  We've definitely seen a lot of Halloween costumes over the years.  It gets harder and harder to find costumes every year.  I really wanted to be Carmen Sandiego this year and I looked everywhere in New York City and at home and could never find a red trench coat like hers.  Thankfully one of our friends saw that one of the resale shops had a Star Trek Uhura dress for sale that was pretty cheap.  So I headed down to try it on and pick up.  The only bad thing was that I tried it on over my clothes so I didn't realize just how short the dress was.  I debated all week on whether or not to wear it but I ended up wearing it with leggings.  Hopefully I didn't scare too many people!!  Chris went as Bob Ross this year and I think that he costume was a hit.
I think the decorations in the garage looked pretty good this year.
