Fall in the Ozarks

Autumn Stream

Oh my word, how I love this season in the Ozarks! The allergies stink, but I have no problem sitting on the deck with tissues shoved up my nose as long as I have a cup of Dunkin Donuts Cinnamon Spice in my hands, the trees in my yard turning beautiful shades of yellow and red, and the incredible orange sunsets on the horizon.

Last year we pretty much went from sweltering summer heat to freezing ice storms. I need transitions. I want to enjoy the changes of life as it moves through the year. This year we’ve made up for last. The day’s are perfectly in the 70s and it’s a bit nippy in the evenings. Can’t get any better than this!

With Gremlin not being able to do the typical Fall stuff, we’re coming up with new traditions for this season. It’s kind of exciting coming up with new ideas as a family. These boys have some wild imaginations! I’ll be sure to update as we go.  Tonight we’re making Monster Mouths with apples, peanut butter, and candy corn for teeth. Even Oldman digs this stuff. That’s a win for the parents! 😉
