Fallish Mountain Monday

What a huge difference from last week to this week. Those of you in the area experienced the drastic drop in temperature and the big storm that came in today. It is starting to feel like Autumn around here. I would be happier if I didn't know that 6 months of winter was straight on Fall's heels. I am praying for a nice, long Autumn.

Encouraged by the requests of her adoring fans, Ms. Tenacious is making an appearance today!

Oak leaves make a beautiful frame for mountains.

This is one of Ms. Tenacious cousins, from the same tree. I like acorns, I don't know why, but I think they are so pretty. I like that they come in two pieces too. A cap and the nut. Rather cool.

Autumn tinted rose hips. (Should you ever be in need of Vitamin C, rosehips have a great deal of it. Good cure for scurvy!)

Some of you will love this, and some of you won't, but there is no deny'n that the leaves are beginning to change color, like it or not.

Besides Fall being around the corner, it is soccer time again!

I LOVE watching my Little Man play soccer. I would never on purpose miss a game of his. There are few things that bring me as much delight as getting his soccer gear together and going, sitting in my little folding chair and cheering for my boy! The league he plays in is for children with disabilities and they play with other kids around their level.
I guess it means so much to me, because it is the closest thing to just being a regular ole mom to my boy. Love the other parents, love the other kids. Love the way everyone cheers for everyone else. Good times! His smile means the whole world to me!

Now, for the cuteness!

After the girls were done playing in the tiny pool, we decided Jack needed a bath. He was NOT amused. We were.

Our Buttercup!

Her eyes may be shut, but I can't resist her dimples!!

Check out these eyes! If they stay blue, they will be our first. Everyone else has brown eyes.

Thanks for dropping by, I love sharing my life in pictures with all of you. As usual, as I go through the pictures, trying to decide which ones are the best, (only the best for you, blog darlings!) I find myself feeling richly blessed.

The Boob Nazi said...

Love the pictures. Loved the weather today.

Bonnie the Boss said...

I bet you wish he could play soccer all the time every day. He seems so happy.
Love the one of the girls in the towels. I think it is the brighness of the white, against the green backdrop.

Lisa said...

We'll have fall through December. Now you can be jealous. :)

Lee said...

Love the soccer pics the most because I remember trying to do soccer with my eldest. There wasn't a special league and in all reality the scope of his disabilities were not yet known. He sure wasn't smiling like your guy and neither was I.

Jillene said...

I.Love.Fall. And I too, hope that it is a long one!!

The pictures are beautiful. I love the ones of Little Man playing Soccer. He looks so happy!!

Soxy Deb said...

You are indeed richly blessed. The pictures are amazing -the kidlettes and the scenery. I think my favorite scenery shots are the leaves with the rain drops on them, but I can't help but hold a special place in my heart for Ms. Tenacious. Tough as nails old broad. lol.

K J and the kids said...

I don't know what it is about Ms. Tenacious. If it's her hard headedness or her willfullness. Whatever it is I draw from that strength every time you post a picture of her. THANK YOU !

Little man looks as happy as the changing leaves. Look at the branches on that kid too. He's going to be SO TALL !

As always. You leave me wanting more with the pictures of those ADORABLE baby girls. I want to EAT those dimples.

M-Cat said...

Thanks for the oak leaf update. And I am so glad, for you, that there is a place where you and Little Man can just be part of a group and feel like a regular parent-and-kid.

Lady of Perpetual Chaos said...

I'm so happy to see Ms. Tenacious is still hangin' on. Yes, I know I have no life.

You're pictures are amazing, your son handsome, and your grand-babies adorable. Also, Buttercup's smile is just yummy!

Ambitious Blonde said...

The weather is confused here. The trees are changing, yet it's eighty degrees outside and perfectly beautiful! I'm not complaining, though.

Buttercup looks like a little buttercup in that yellow dress. Once again, you have given us a simply wonderful Mountain Monday dear Jo. :)
