It is currently 42 degrees. Avery slept through the night last night. She fell asleep at 11:30 P.M. and woke up at 6:50 A.M. When she started to cry I noticed there was an extra person in our bed. It was Elise. She has never been big on sleeping in our bed, so it was quite a surprise. I am still always amazed that another person can crawl into our bed at night and we don't even know it. Kinda scary, eh?

So, it looks like Fall is here. As much as I hate for the summer to end, I do love the fall. Yesterday was a perfect fall weather day. It was around 60 all day. The sun was shining and there were just a few clouds hanging in the sky. Just enough to be pretty. We spent a lot of the day shopping. It wasn't real fun shopping but duty shopping (groceries, socks, t-shirts, stuff like that). I did, however, go to JoAnns because they were have a Coupon Commotion sale. I spent more money that I really wanted to but it was all stuff for Christmas gifts. I did buy some $1 a yard fabric at WalMart. The sales lady noticed the car seat cover was made from fabric that they carried. She commented on how nice it was. Then we were chatting about sewing. She said the most peculiar thing...she asked me if I sewed because I had to or if I did it because I liked it!!!! How do you take a comment like that? Besides sewing isn't always cheap. But more on that some other time.

As for today...we are going to go to Church (I should be getting ready right now) and after lunch we may go the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and do this fun family thing. You take your digital cameras and they give you a list of things to take photos of. Then you show them your pics and they award prizes and stuff. I think it will be fun. A while back we sold our old digital camera. I wish we still had it. I would let Jude take his own pictures today (it was smaller and a little easier to handle). If any of the pics turn out nice I will post them.

You can pick up little digital cameras for kids pretty cheap. I have one put back for Lydia for Christmas I got at Gabes awhile back.

For some reason my kids never just crawl in bed with us. They cry until I come to see what is wrong and then want to come to our bed. They are all pretty well trained to sleep on the floor when they come back to our room. :)
