Like most, Fall is one of our favorite times of the year. We love the cool air, the gorgeous leaves, and Fall activities… football, apple picking and pumpkin-patching. For me, its always a season of counting my blessings and feeling and abundance of thankfulness. Years ago, after the passing of one of my best friends, I began to look at the Fall with new eyes. I have always been thankful for the lessons she taught me, but being grateful for every single second seems to be the one that really stands out…especially in the Fall, not sure why that is.
So, anyway, today we took advantage of a chilly Saturday and did some apple pickin’.
Whoa! Picking apples is hard work! Anna closed her eyes with each apple she plucked.
Thanks goodness for a tall daddy!!
Ahhhhhh…the sweet sound of giggling girls…
In other exciting Lenhart news, we’ve found out we’re having a BOY!! The sheer joy and thankfulness that we have another healthy baby on the way is simply overwhelming. I feel like I’ve been waiting a long time now to find out what my “puzzle” will look like when it is complete. You know, what my little family will be. How will we look when we’re “finished”. Seeing that tiny baby boy growing, surrounded by two beautiful, delightful big sisters waiting, and an adoring husband holding my hand was one of the most amazing moments of my life. Wow. Somebody pinch me, is just doesn’t get any better than this. (Told ya I was feeling especially thankful!) 😉
