Happy First Day of Fall!

Where exactly do we find leaves like this?

Oh wait, a friend made me some sugar cookies this weekend (that were delish!) and they looked like that. It must be a cookie thing.

Why would google put cookies on their image to talk about fall?

Anyone catching the sarcasm here? We don't have fall! We suddenly have "not so hot anymore" and then it's Thanksgiving and Christmas. While other parents are putting leggings on their little ballerinas at Halloween to make sure they don't get cold, we have to give our Power Ranger short sleeves so he doesn't die from heat stroke. (true story)

Seriously though, I went to see Fall once. Bill and I were in a wedding (that we spent more on in clothing, airfare, hotels, ect. than we did on our own wedding) in Vermont many years ago. The leaves had barely begun to turn colors and some were falling to the ground. I was giddy with delight as I gathered as many as I thought I could haul back to Arizona. (Yes, the Vermont-ites thought I was nuts. What do you can someone from Vermont?) Anyway, I brought the leaves home, dried them and then laminated them so I could post them on my Kindergarten bulletin board instead of die-cut construction paper red, orange and yellow leaves. Oooh. Aaah.

Ha. Ha. "I went to see Fall once." I made a funny.

Halloween in Arizona is the best time of year. I miss that.
