So we have  been mildly working with Eli potty training for the last few months, a good friend of mine said, try match box cars. I put little thought into it, until TODAY!! We were at toys R us and I saw a set of them, very cheap and rethought the idea! IT WORKS!! I explained to him that he could not open the cars until he went pee in the potty, so Eli ran into the house and pulled off his clothes and PEED in the potty!! Then again after dinner!!! We are on to something this bribing your kids....WORKS!!!

Pumpkin patch

We went to Simmon's Farm this weekend to pick out  a pumpkin and take a hay ride. The weather was beautiful and we had a wonderful time! Eli asked to ride the horses and loved it!

There are so many reasons I love fall....
  • I love the warm comfort food of fall...for example last night I made homemade potato&cheese soup with homemade cheese and bacon biscuits..yumm and homemade Buttermilk custard apple pie..yummy..
  • I love the colors every family walk we just are amazed at the beautiful colors
  • sweater weather...love it
  • football games we love going WVU football games!
  • And of course Halloween!!-and we are so excited to be in such a great neighborhood for trick-or-treating they actually close down streets!
But then I realize it means winter, christmas and Eli's birthday is SOON! and I start freaking out about what I have to get done!! This year I am going to slow down and enjoy fall!! For today!
