We so easily get caught up in this beautiful time... so much to do to prepare and celebrate. I tend to jump right in.
The leaves dancing outside of my kitchen windows remind me to slow down a bit more and not forget the autumn splendor around us.
With napping and loving by the cozy fire,
Stopping to observe the gigantic mushroom by the parking lot at school (we thought it was fake!). C's hand is in the bottom picture to give you an idea of just how big it was.
Playing in the warm water,
getting giddy over a sweet package in the mail (that actually came before Thanksgiving but I forgot to share this picture and it seemed fitting in this post),
Autumn wool crafting of felted leaves and acorns using cookie cutters and wool. C did the wet felting method and K did the needle felting method.
This is such a full time.
No, we dare not forget.
In other news, I thought I would check in with all of you to see what you think of the bigger pictures. I love that the size shows more detail (although these pics aren't a good example... the Spiral of Lights ones were a better idea), but I was wondering what you think. Perhaps they are too big? I wouldn't want to slow down your computers or anything of that nature. Bigger isn't always better. How very American of me to think that way, eh?
Don't forget there is still time to enter for you chance to win a pocket gnome from Bright Life Toys here.
