Wow I hope your weekend was as wonderful as mine was! I had every one of my kids home and we spent Saturday at the apple orchard. It was both picturesque and over-commercialized but I relished every moment! How could I not? I was with my favorite people in the whole world...
Cider and doughnuts...
and fruit flinging! I love the concentration on Cams face, he always did that when he was coloring pictures too :)
All of my kids are funny, make me snort laugh funny and well Danielle was really humoring me by posing in front of the restroom sign... the lady doing the pee dance was too funny! And why was the weekend extra special with everyone home?
Because Max turned 8! He was quite surprised when his cousins showed up (I told him a little fib and said that they weren't going to be able to.) Don't judge...these are the cousins that if I told him on Mon. that they might be able to come over on Fri. than I would have 4 of the longest days ever with a million questions and on and on. So my brother actually does the same thing on his end, just trying to live a peaceful life people!
Max loves guns.I mean LOVES them, him and his buddies play army every chance they get. I have tried to talk him out of it but to no avail. So he got nerf paintball and Cam is giving him a lesson on paintball safety. After that lesson he tried to convince him to be a moving target! He is a great big brother I promise! But a big brother in all respects, and that means a little teasing too!
Today was spent at the work table again and tomorrow I will be taking pictures of all of the goodies. Thanks again for all of the support and wonderful feedback about the pumpkin patch, they are selling as fast as I can list them and so I will be replenishing the store tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by, Theresa xoxo

  6. There is nothing better than a day or even an hour spent with family. The colors mirror all the joy spent together having fun and loving each other!

  7. I love when everyone is in the nest. Happy birthday to max! Nothing like a beautiful fall absolute favorite.

  8. Theresa,

    SO happy you and the gang were able to enjoy such wonderful family time.
    I had to chuckle when you said snort laugh because I do the same thing with a little added spit to boot!My kids have learned to back up quickly. I tell them it is their fault for being hilarious.

    I do so love the pee dance sign. :0



  9. What a fun weekend, In the end it is alllll about family. I love that bathroom sign!


  10. I love autumn as well! I love the new look of your blog!

  11. That is my kind of an orchard. It's great that your kids love that too. These days with all the technology kids often don't like the "farm" thing anymore.
    Laughed at the pee dance comment....hubby teases me when I do that dance too. Do you have to he shakes his head! TMI huh?
    happy to hear the pumpkins are flying out the door!'
    C the new header

  12. Fun, fun weekend!! How wonderful to have the entire family home to help Max celebrate his birthday!! The apple orchard looked so pretty. Bruce and I went to the pumpkin patch this weekend. Don't have any kids to take anymore but we still enjoy it just the same (ok, we took the dog and she enjoyed it too).

  13. Hey Theresa! I love how you changed up your blog. Looks great! And what a wonderful weekend indeed! Picturesque for sure. Dang! We don't get that around here. Happy belated to Max. Today is our aniversary and next Tuesday is Zack's 12th birthday. Man how time flies! Have a wonderful Wednesday! Happy creating. :) Tammy
