I celebrated my 35th birthday on October 27th. That sounds a bit old, but most days, that's about what I feel. I'm not one to hang onto my youth too much anyways (youth is overrated, and only appears supersweet when you are armchair quarterbacking, in my opinion). James and I celebrated with dinner at Tucano's Brazilian Grill (free dinner for the birthday girl, woo hoo). On begins the march to 36 next year...

September was a bad picture month - the only pictures we took, apparently, were of the first days of school. We did mildly better in October, so here are some random pictures from the first half of the month (since I can barely remember what happened way back then anyways).
|The little girls love their Build A Bears and the piano|
|Elinor is also a huge Littlest Pet Shop fan - the messes the girls can make with those is epic|
|We had loads of fresh apples from the orchard, which meant lots of lots of homemade applesauce, yum!|
|Allegra, Ian, Colin, and Cecily with one of the 4 year old teachers at Shepherd of the Valley, Mrs. DuVall. They've all had her, and Elinor will make five, once she's in her class next year. The preschool has been such a blessing to our family.|
|One of the best parts of being a teacher, for sure!|
