Fall is nice


I've been enjoying the cozy fall weather. I know most people probably hate it, but I love the big wind storms and pouring rain...and the occasional nice day in between! Matthew used the bad weather to be home and build a beautiful hearth and install our new wood stove! (He installed the chimney during a brief sunny time.) It makes our house so nice and cozy! The kids like it too and fortunately understand not to get too close, but we will be putting a gate around it just to be safe. We've been doing other nice fall things like baking pumpkin pie and cookies, and collecting the beautiful maple leaves from our yard to make decorations. Meadow filled a bag with the leaves, then excitedly asked me, "Are we going to make a pie with them?"
Brennen is sleeping pretty well now at night, but during the day he seems to think he's in some kind of contest to be the loudest baby ever, and the most spittupy! I don't think anyone will ever beat Meadow on that one, but he's close! Beware everyone's furniture and carpet! In the bottom picture, Logan is giving him a nice kiss, not tackling him! :)

A leaf pie might be interesting. Your stove looks great - I loved having a wood stove when I was growing up. Cute pics of the kids, as always.
