I Love Fall!

I know I've said this a lot, but I love autumn. It doesn't last long here in Vegas, so we take what we can get! The weather is finally cooler, I'm watching NFL every Sunday, and Halloween is coming up. Saturday night we took the girls to the atrium @ Bellagio to see the fall scene. The girls especially loved the talking tree. We decided to walk around front and watch the fountain show too. It's been a while since we were down on the strip.
Last night we decorated sugar cookies for FHE... minus Benj. He works at Mountain View Hospital now, and just started there this week. And now he has to commute! It's about a 25 minute drive. It's weird to think of him being far away now and not just across the street @ Southern Hills. :) But we're so proud of all his hard work in his career and supporting us! Happy Fall everyone!

My parents came to town last weekend. It was so much fun having them here! Of course I got zero pictures of the kids with their grandparents... :( But we made the most of our time and after the weekend was up, we were exhausted! Thanks for the great visit Mom & Dad!

On another note- Lexi came home the other day and crashed on the couch. That is not really like her, and yep she was sick. She had a fever. So she stayed home from school yesterday. I cancelled the dentist appointments the girls had and made dr. appts. instead. Thank goodness it was nothing serious (like the dreaded pig flu) and we kept her home today just to be on the safe side. She was devestated though because today was her first field trip. They were going to the orchard to pick a pumpkin. Oh well, they're going on another field trip the week after next. And it's back to school tomorrow!

Also... the weather here has been FANTASTIC!! We had three digit temps on Monday and today the high was supposed to be 78. Aaaaahhhh... I love having the screen door/windows open. The girls were playing in the backyard and wanting to put on their jackets, lol! And I must mention the yummy smell in my house now: the stew cooking in my crockpot. Mmmmmmm... I love Fall!
