Autumn in the Mountains!

First of all, is autumn your favurite season? Why or why not?

Of course it is! I like the cooler days after a miserably hot summer. I like when the leaves change colors and pumpkins and scarecrows and Halloween decorations are everywhere. And of course football season!

I do! I carve foam and real pumpkins each year!

Describe a perfect autumn day:   
Getting in the morning with it really cold and partly sunny going for a long run. Coming back to a hot shower, and then a steaming cup pumpkin spice tea while reading my Bible on the back porch. Raking leaves with the kids, then cooking lunch and having a family picnic in the back yard with the kids. Then baking and watching Halloween shows and movies with the kids.

Don’t you hate it when stores start promoting Christmas way too early?
