It's THAT Time of Year!

I meant to post this yesterday because yesterday was the official first day of fall!!! My favorite time of year...especially here in Texas. Now we haven't gotten a cool-down yet, but I hear it's coming. And I am sooooooo ready! How could you NOT like fall? You got football, better weather, beautiful trees (well, somewhere anyway), Ian's birthday, fall festivals, our anniversary (11 years this October). Did I mention football? Oh, yeah.

I'm hoping to get brave enough to take the kids to a pumpkin patch thing this year. I'll let ya know if I have a major break-through and decide to do it.

What is this Beautiful Picture?

This is one of THE most beautiful pictures residers of parts of Texas could ever see. DEAD FIRE ANTS! Sick, I know. This mound, which we have poisoned at least twice, came up looking like this after a day and a half of massive rain. Now, unfortunately there are two things we can be sure of. One, for each one of these dead ants there are at least a thousand more live ones seeking vengeance. Two, those lives ones are searching out a place in our backyard to reside. Horrible little creatures!
