Monday Moments

Happy Monday! How has your week been? This last weekend was my fall break and I guess I did some fall things... a little ha ha. 

Raking leaves is seriously one of my favorite fall traditions. My family used to rake leaves for my grandmother every year, and somehow it just doesn't feel like it has been fall until I've raked some leave.

So, on Thursday I went to my sister's house to do Art times again. I'd been there a few hours when there was a knock at the door. My sister went to get it and The Captain and my little sister were on the other side of the door!
I was surprised that they were there, but the surprise didn't end there! My husband had coordinated with my sisters to surprise me with a Halloween Costume! The Captain asked me a few weeks ago what I would want to be for Halloween if money was no object and I told him that I would be Captain America. Then he put the wheels in motion. My little sister made me a shirt and made me a Captain America tutu and my older sister made me a Captain America shield. I felt so lucky that I have such an amazing family that would do so much for me. :)
Don't worry, there will be pictures coming.

My best friend hosted a pumpkin carving party on Saturday which was a lot of fun. Even if I didn't actually carve any pumpkins. I don't like carving pumpkins, but the hot apple cider had me feeling like fall had really hit.
