Feels like Fall

Fall is my favorite time of year, all the beautiful colors around just gives you that warm comfort feeling. Doesn't officially start until September 23rd this year. I just couldn't wait I took the kids apple picking the first day they opened to kick off the season early.
Got some beautiful apples, a little small but sweet & juicy

and picked peach pie too....DHs favorite but not like grandma use to make....

oh and today is my birthday and my mil sent me this small package wrapped in Dora paper, my DD has been hiding it...It's yarn I just know it is. (the kids told me, but they can't read well and don't know what kind or color, mil tried to hide it from them while they where out west visiting her when I had my surgery, of course they called me that day and told me too, what good kids!) I can't open it yet, have to wait until DD comes home from school... I better put the package back right where she hid it so I can be surprised....

I did make a cake, but had to cut a piece so I could take a picture...heehee Hope the kids don't want to use candles later....lol 29 AGAIN!! After knowing DH for about 10 years daaa ya think he's buy me a cake or know to go to an Italian bakery for a Italian Rum Cake(but I don't ask either)...Just because he doesn't like cake, I usually buy him either a pie and write on it with frosting or carrot cake the only things he really likes. I do get to go for Chinese food for dinner though!
Now the cake was suppose to be checkerboard like but not perfect only my 2nd time trying to do this type...Chocolate & French vanilla flavored...

Will have to post pressies either later tonight or tomorrow.......Yeah yarn porn! ;o)

Happy 29th Birthday!

Yep, no one seems to remember to get me a cake either! Can't wait for the yarn porn. I could never take my oldest with me when she was younger because she would tell hubby what we bought the minute we got home! Little stinker!

Yum, no cooking tonight! It tastes great!
