Falling in love, with Fall.
Wednesday, November 3, 2010

Crisp mornings. An early dusk. Falling leaves rustling in the autumn breeze.

Fall has officially made an appearance. As have the bulky jackets and close-toed shoes. It won't be long before the joyful melodies of Christmas permeate our homes, cars, and shopping malls. Aaahh, I simply adore this time of year. The anticipation of it all just makes my heart flutter in delight.

It's been a busy few months for our family. Not only have we been trying to adjust to living in a small town (where it's nearly impossible to find a good cup of coffee, a place to stop in and have a beer, or simply sit down and enjoy a nice meal), but our kids have also been very hard at work training for The Okie Games.

Because you're not a true Okie until you can inhale a doughnut suspended in mid-air without the use of your hands.

"Hmmm...this is going to be tricky.
Perhaps I should go about this from a different angle."



"C'mon you little piece of sugary goodness.
Go to your home!!"

(I love how you can see the desperation in his hands

as he grips the beam with all of his might.)


"There. Now we're getting somewhere."


Wyatt showed the doughnut who was boss.
One step closer to achieving Okie status.


And only a true Okie can come up with a cowboy or cowgirl costume at a moment's notice.

No problem for this girl.

But her brother could use a little help.

Football player meets Woody from Toy Story.
Big time FAIL.

Most impressive, however, is Wyatt's ability to spit pumpkin seeds. He's quite a natural.


Okie's are serious about pumpkin-seed spitting. Check out the little girl behind Wyatt eyeing her competition. Don't think for a second she didn't end up spitting her seeds clear across the room. She's born and bred, by golly. We have a lot of catching up to do.

But trust me, life hasn't been all work and no play. We've definitely had our share of dance parties,


field trips to the pumpkin patch,


and fall carnivals with the cousins.


I don't see life slowing down any time soon for us, but one thing is certain. There will never be a dull moment with this much sweet,


and this much spice,


living under the same roof.

My Wine Personality:
For the most part I’m a chardonnay, as I consider myself to exhibit a somewhat sunny and mellow disposition (most of the time), but because I find a tremendous amount of joy out of showering my two kids with hugs and kisses, I also possess the subtle sweetness often found in a riesling. But don’t be fooled. I love a great outdoor adventure and am willing to try anything once. This occasional display of boldness is thought to match that of a cabernet, whereas my appreciation for nature suggests that I have an earthy component to my personality—very characteristic of a merlot.

“Wine rejoices the heart of man and joy is the mother of all virtues.”
