Christmas in September...

Russell and I have been gathering tomatoes just as they are starting to change from really light green on up to red. The green ones can ripen on the counter - and do in just a few days. Well this afternoon we went out to gather some tomatoes as we had a light frost this morning and didn't want to lose what was growing. I ended up with two huge bowls - making it 4 total with what I already had in the house.
We also picked the remainder of the zucchini so we wouldn't lose that either. There is red and green all over my kitchen! It's looking very festive. :) I love this time of year.

You are going to have a fun day; have you decided what you are doing with it all? So you are also heading to cold season; we had our first frost a couple of week ago.
Enjoy! I do love Fall; it gives me time to rebuild.
Enjoy!

I think this was in 2004. It was Nephi's first trip to the beach. The boys were all so little! My have they grown.

Meet the Parents...Russell and Candace
It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
