Fall Felicities

Fall seemed to fly away so quickly! Here are a few highlights from my favorite month: October!
Kayla took us to Governor's for desert- yum, yum, yum!
My birthday lobster- not long for this world!
I make it a habit to do some reflecting on my birthday. So I usually take a walk on the trails of the Curtis homestead and commune with my Savior!
As I was walking, I was busy praying out loud and looking at my feet when I nearly ran into....
... a porcupine!!
I stepped back, and walked around him, waiting for him to follow me, but he just sat there, munching on his leaf. He even let me get this close to take a photo! What a neat blessing!
My seat of retrospection! ; )

I'd always wanted to see a sunset or sunrise from a mountain top. (Titus didn't seem too thrilled with my dream!)
So, just before dusk, we hiked up monument hill.

And were met with a beautiful, fiery sunset!
Ethan and Marshall found a rock to climb under!
Me and Ben
Just like Daddy!

Dad lead us in the doxology as we sat and gazed at the beautiful colors of the fading day!

Marshall received a balloon.... even though it was MY birthday! ; )
I love these boys!
This is a new kind of trailer- a train trailer!

Ti's first popsicle! His lips were huge afterward!!

Mom sporting her lovely new do for her big 5-0!
Chocolate steamed-pudding, Mom's favorite!

What a blessing to have such a mom!

Interesting position to play guitar in....
Ethan's pj workout!
The warm colors of fall are almost gone now, but thankfully we have the memories of God's blessings stored in our pantries and in our hearts!
I hope you enjoyed a bountiful fall!
