Fall Is Here!

Fall has officially arrived in St. Louis. This weekend we had highs in the 40s and our yard is (or should I say WAS) littered with leaves. We have pulled out the winter coats and are finding more and more to do indoors since it's harder to keep the boys out for any length of time.

We spent Saturday running errands while Tim worked on prepping our "project" to hang the drywall (YIPEE) and then spent a couple of hours over at Aunt Trica and Uncle Hank's house checking out all of Sophie's STUFF! To see my boys playing with PINK was quite a sight. They were quite amused with all of the new stuff that they will have to play with once their cousin arrives. Her room is precious and Hank and Tricia are SO READY to hop on that airplane and travel to Vietnam to go get her. I just wish that someone would hurry up and process Sophie's paperwork so that they can go get her and bring her home.

Other than that, just a run of the mill weekend. Laundry, groceries, relaxing a bit - you know....the stuff that we don't get around to during the week! We did spend $65 yesterday and paid two guys to blow all the leaves in our yard to the curb for pick up this week! They had left a flyer on the driveway and I called to find out what they were all about. Two cute Irish boys showed up about an hour after my call and told us it would be $65 to blow the entire yard - Tim and I in the same breath said "Go for it!" and in an hour (I kid you NOT), they had the WHOLE YARD done! It looks better than Tim and I could ever make it look - and saved us the back breaking, blister causing raking that we would have had to done to get it to that point. They'll be back in about 3 weeks to get the remainder of the leaves that will fall - that was the highlight of my day yesterday, as pathetic as it sounds!
