Happy Fall

As you all know I took the kids to the pumpkin patch last weekend. I just love Fall! It is truly my favorite season. Nice weather, pretty colors, and the season just seems relaxing. Not to mention all the wonderful holidays. Lately I have been reading a bunch of blog posts that talk about preparing for the holidays and avoiding the stress. Does everyone really get stressed over the holidays? Okay, okay maybe I can see why a little... If you know me... I stress to the max everyday so to me the holidays are nothing different. I love shopping for my kids, absolutely love to wrap presents. I can't decorate enough! I am looking forward to this holiday the most because last year we spent several months in the hospital with Gab's brain surgery. We only got to put up a very small tree near her hospital bed. Of course we weren't home to decorate. I didn't wrap presents but by all means the kids were not lacking in anything. They got plenty. I also didn't get to accomplish my favorite BLACK FRIDAY shopping event which I do plan on this year. The rush from fighting working hard to get the good deals before the stores sale out is priceless!

Okay so not everything that comes with Fall is perfect. With Fall comes sickness. T is already on antibiotics from last week getting the sinus infection crap. Gab had a small runny nose which I am sure will come back and Noah suffers from allergies so I know he will spend most of his time sick. That is the part I dread. We went to the zoo for Gab's field trip (again you know) where the teachers could not use enough Purell. So my goal is to try and maintain a healthy fall. I did a search for some free samples of the needed items and ran across this site. Check it out! "Healthy Fall free samples"

I just wanted to say Happy Fall to everyone! My kids are out of school AGAIN on Monday. Seems like they have had several days off this year already. Watch my post later today about the cool 5th grade trip we are planning at the school. I am so excited to take part in it! I went to the meeting last night and volunteered. I will share the news later.

I wish you a happy and healthy fall! I also love the good stuff--the leaves, the crisp air and Halloween--but dread the sick kids!
