Fall Photos

One of my favorite things about fall is that when wedding season slows down Jonda and I take time to actually take pictures of our own families!  I know our husbands equally enjoy these little outings!  They are good sports and put up with us!  Here's a few from this fall's shoot.  Thank you Jonda for the awesome pics!

After a full week of meetings in Moscow, Id., Brian's work took everyone one a fishing day out on Hell's Canyon.  I missed the fun, but they caught lots of fish and it was an awesome day!

First Frost

Yesterday morning when I left for work...there wasn't a single leaf fallen from this tree...when I came home from work last night this is what it looked like!  The cold snap is here and were movin' on into old man winter!  Love the fall colors in my own front yard!

Busy Bodies

Sunday Afternoon Jolene and the kiddos came up with a visit with GiGi.  We had dinner and vegged out a little before the craziness of applesauce making began.  
Gunnar and I
 LindyJean did this to her own hair....pretty impressive.
 this was the only day the Boss man was home when Grandma was here cause he had to go to Moscow all week for work.  
 Monday Jolene and I commenced with the crazyness of Applesauce Making.  Grandma was an excellent babysitter and we got lots done!

Grandma GiGi comes to town

Last Thursday I ventured over to Seattle to pick up GiGi from the airport.  We decided to live it up in the big city and hit up Pikes Place Market, ate at the Waterfront Grille, went shopping at Bell-Square and had lots of Starbucks!    We've been busy with lots of fun activities ever since....stay tuned for more GiGi adventures!

Go Cougs!

This past weekend Brian and I met up with some friends from college back in Pullman for a Cougar football game. (my first...shocker...I know, I went to school there for 3 years and never once made it to a football game...)  There are quite a few college buddies missing as this was opening hunting season, so that's where most of the men-folk ended up. We arrived in time to hit up the Bookie (where they sell all the fun cougar gear) Ferdinand's which is the WSU Creamery and they make amazing cheese and ice cream.  We hung out by the campers and enjoyed the beautiful weekend!

Well the biking season is coming to an end...but we are definitely still enjoying it.  Ash, Brian, and I went to Ellensburg the other weekend for lunch!
 Fall also means yard clean up around these parts.  The poplar trees were in need of a good trimming.
 Maddy has been spending most of the day in the tall pasture grass....not sure why, but she loves it out there.

Fall Cookin'

Who doesn't love fall comfort food?  I know I certainly do...and my favorite part of fall is all the homegrown ingredients.  I made soup the other night that every ingredient was home grown...down to the onions!  I got tomatoes, onions, peppers, and carrots from Amber, Zucchini from Lyndenn and Brittany, Herbs from my pots, Beans from Kim, Corn that Brian was delicious, even if it was meatless...which Brian protested too...

October means a few things over here...the first being fall...obviously, the second being that the cows are no longer getting enough feed from the pasture and we now start their daily hay/grain routine.  With 7 cows we needed a better feeder Boss built one.
 He still has to put a few finishing touches on it, but he installed the new panels and built this bunker so they can't push the hay too far back. 
 77 thinks it will work nicely.
October also means I go and get my gourds and pumpkins for the porch...this year Maddy decided that I must have brought the gourds home for her and insists on eating them!
