What a beautiful Fall day...I spent the morning at the Apple Orchard with Charlotte's preschool class, we picked a whole big bag of apples all for $1, yum! It was so fun to see Charlotte pulling the big juicy apples of the branches and giggling with delight as they toppled down around us. She thoughtfully picked one for each of her brothers...she found a teeny, tiny one that she thought would be perfect for "her" baby brother, that's our sweet girl! We came home and made a special apple pie for Daddy, it was delicious and we had such fun baking together. I feel so lucky that I get to experience these things, childhood is fleeting! We love you Charlotte Rose!

The finished product...this is the 50cent book shelf I found (scroll down to see the original pics), I sanded and painted it and it is kind of fun I think. Campbell is enjoying having all his favorites close by, he adores reading! Its not PBK but its not bad for 50cents, huh?

I was so excited to find this bag of copper cookie cutters last week at a tag sale. I got them all for $1! Charlotte and I had fun today going through the bag...a rooster, star, Scottie dog, angel, Santa, fall leaf, heart, horse, reindeer and bunny. The woman who sold them said they were old, 25 years old! I love cookie cutters, especially copper ones. The kids and I enjoy making cut-outs and we are excited to use these later this week. Can't wait to show you our masterpieces soon! Isn't Fall the best time to start baking again after the long, hot Summer?

This was a busy weekend spent with family and friends...enjoying the beautiful Fall weather. School Fun Fair was Friday, volunteering at our Junior League Thrift Shop early Saturday, our first soccer game...Campbell had a great breakaway but just missed the net, better luck next week buddy! Their team was victorious though. "Uncle Rob" (my bro) was visiting from CA and got to spend some time with us all and join us at a friend's "housewarming" party Saturday night...the live music and food was awesome, thanks Christie - may you and Ben enjoy every happiness in your beautiful home! Today we had our special friends from out of town for brunch, enjoyed each others company, every time you leave Mags, my heart breaks all over again. Can't wait to see you and your new digs in a few weeks - GIRLS TRIP, YEA!!!! We wrapped up the weekend by taking the kids to the Zoo, we had a ball!
My sweetie is suffering from a miserable sinus thing but still managed to "play" Goliath at church today and as always, was a big help with the kids this weekend. Love ya babe, feel better soon! Hope you all had a great weekend...what did you do?

HERE ARE THE RULES: The exchange focuses on doing an act of kindness without expecting anything in return other than that the recipient will, in their turn, pass the kindness along and pay it forward.
This is how it works... I am going to agree to send something cute and preppy to the first 3 blog owners who post a comment on this entry. In turn, those three will post this information and pick 3 people they want to send something to and so on.Unfortunately, due to postage costs, I can only pay it forward within the United States.
If you are interested in participating, be one of the first 3 blog owners to leave a comment!
The little something you send can be something you made, bought, were given or found. Just a gift that will make the person smile.
If you'd like to join in, be one of the first 3 people to leave me a comment. You have to promise that you will then post about this on your blog, link to me, and then send something to the first three people who sign up to play along through your blog.
I hope people like this idea. It's a small way to bring a smile to someone's face!*I stole these rules from Molly's Mom blog. So, the first 3 people to leave a comment will get a lil something! Act quick!
*Please leave your email on the comment so I can contact you! Thanks.

I have been wanting that book shelf in Potterybarn Kids for sometime now (that mounts on the wall )for next to Campbell's bed - he is an avid reader and adores going to bed with a big pile of books (just like his Mom except my pile is magazines...and cookbooks too!) we often find him asleep with his light and all his books spread across him! I found this magazine rack for like 50cents recently. I cleaned it, sanded it and sprayed it a glossy white, it hangs next to his bed now and is filled with all his night-night favs! A great, easy project! I'll post some pics tomorrow of the finished product so you can see the improvement. Hope your settling in with a good read and snuggling with the one you love...I love Fall! Sleep tight!

Check out my new window "mistreatment" - I did it myself and I think it looks great...the picture is not great but the fringe is beautiful, chocolate brown and aqua blue! My little creative space is coming together! The lamp is so fun too...it was $89 marked down to $12.99 - love it! Visit www.nestingplacenc.blogspot.com to see what all the "Mistreatment" fuss is about! Have a great day!

Happy to report our little ballerina did great! It was off to a rocky start but about half way through she decided to join in the make-believe Cinderella Ball, it was a great class and made me so happy to see her so happy!
In other fun family musings...little baby is sad...a bad cold and not sleeping well...but still managed some giggles and smiles today, he enjoyed a long walk this afternoon with me, it was great to see the sun after so much rain! Let there be light! OK, this is big news - we had all of our trees cut and trimmed and shaped and it made a huge difference in the amount of light we get in the house, this is huge! Never buy a house that faces North/South, there just is not alot of daylight and I NEED daylight. Exciting I know! Biggest baby is doing great in school, just started weekly speeling tests and is reading like crazy. Cub Scouts is about to start (Daddy is the Den Leader)and his first soccer game is this weekend. My brother Rob is coming to vist this weekend from CA, Mom and Dad will visit too. Our good friends who recently moved away are coming back for a party so I am excited to see them too. Miss ya Mags!
Busy getting the Fall decorations out, the kids are dying to get the Halloween stuff out - Oct. 1 kiddos, hang on....since I was on bed rest last year during the holidays I am just excited to be able to enjoy it all this year, can't believe it has almost been a year. Enjoy the pics and as always, thanks for visiting. Oh and don't miss MARTHA's show tomorrow all about BLOGS, love it!!!
