Fabulous Fall!!!

Today was the PERFECT fall day! The air was warm, but a cool breeze would blow, the leaves were very colorful, and the smells were amazing. It was even better because we spent it together as a family, enjoying nature. Today was the 2nd annual Pine Grove Furnace Fall Festival in the Michaux State Forrest. The festival had live music, pumpkin carving, candle making, apple cider pressing, and hayrides, and the best thing is that it was all FREE! John had a few extra hours before work today, so we decided to enjoy.

Enjoying a little hayride through the woods.

Kenzie has totally embraced being a teenager, she doesn'twant her picture taken, so I have to take what I can get. This is what she does....

She is beautiful even when she is being stubborn!
She is flashing me the loser sign behind her rude!!

They were pressing fresh apple cider in some antique presses, Jackson got to help turn the handle, and then drink the results.

We still love each other after all these years!

They had a candle making booth, where we could dip our own candles, and see how they used to be made. (Just like Wheeler Farm, do some of you remember that?)

They had a bunch of carved pumpkins on a raft in the lake, apparently the night before they lit them and set it afloat in the evening. That would have been cool!

We are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful place, that offers us such great experiences, and opportunities. We will look forward to this again next year!
Happy Fall Y'all!!!

Don't forget to pledge for John's book, it is open until Oct 31st

No Sweets For Santa is back!

Do you remember my very talented husbands Christmas Children's book. Last year he self published it in a coloring book format......well, he is back at it this year trying to get it published in a hard back form. This book is going to be awesome! It is the same great story, with FABULOUS new art, and a ton of extras included....

The thing is, WE NEED YOUR HELP! John is trying to raise funds to get this book printed. Check out his fund raising site on, watch the video, and make a pledge! It is worth it, and will be a great Christmas gift.

I am Alive!!!
