like pumpkin spice

i love my hair in this picture.
it was super windy.
we spent the day in the aspens of park city today.
mama C had one last day from aloha and wanted to see the fall.
the canyon was full of oranges, reds, yellows, and greens.
it really put me in the mood for fall.
we stuffed ourselves at stein's.
the pork loin watched a movie.
and max smiled ear to ear.
we came home and both babies refused to nap.
it was a let down.
i didn't make dinner.
no one starved.
i packed some boxes.
and the kids went to bed at 8:17pm.
for the first time since spring.
the news is on.
if you didn't know, ksl weathermen are very educational.
last year i learned about why the leaves change colors from them.
the cold air comes, the tree pulls its moisture into the trunk, leaves lose moisture, dry up, change colors, fall off.
tonight i learned about increased winds in the center of a fire.
a firestorm.
oxygen and air going to fill in the space that the fire is eating the oxygen from.
creating increased winds.
evil little trick the fire pulls.
all from the ksl weathermen.
my house is quiet.
and it smells like pumpkin spice.
i am at peace.
a great place to be.
now, more boxes...

Packing is such a bummer--- but at least you are moving to your own house so you know you won't have to do it again for a long, long time! :)

What a fun weekend for you! I adore Park City. I hate packing up, though. Not a fun thing at all. But your reasons for packing are divine, so that should take the tedium out of it. :)
