Mish Mash and a mutha load of pictures

Happy Fall! I am loving the Pumpkin Cupcake candle from Bath & Body Works and loving the cooler weather. It have been overcast and raining since last Wednesday and it has been a little piece of fall heaven.
We had an interesting week and weekend. A good time was had by all, but I am slowly noticing my little love bug entering a not so fun stage. Although, according to everyone I will look back and miss all of this, even these stages, and I am sure these experienced mommas are right, but right now it is hard and trying.
I found the more we were out of the house keeping busy the better everyone's mood seemed to be, so that is what we did. Fair, food, Grandma, parks... you name it we did it.
Parenting an infant and toddler are so, so, sooooo different and I am having to learn as I go. Any input of patience is gladly accepted. I find myself experiencing a drastic range of emotion!
This has been my motto that I repeat to myself over and over and over......
"There is no such thing as good days or bad days, only grafeful days or ungrateful days", and I choose to be grateful.
Much works is being put into finding the good in even the most trying days of parenting, marriage, life....
So rather than having a "Debbie Downer" post I will let the pictures speak for all the things I am grateful for in our day to day life.

Okay so these next 2 pictures might be my two favorite of the night. Check out hand placement of the 3 individuals behind my sweet boys. It appears that she is holding hands with her boyfriend... only to be fondled by the boy "friend" behind her. Wtf?
 Are they happily aware of this arrangement or is this guy just trying to cop a feel and OMG!! What if the guy in the back is the guy in the fronts BFF. That would just be wrong. Anywho... if you think it was just a fluke.. the next pic solidifies the matter.

My boy wasn't too savey on all the fair had to offer, much to his momma's dismay, UNTIL we spent $10 for him to win a car worth MAYBE 0.25 cents at which point the fair made sense to him. 

 Grandma paid us a visit and gave momma some help while Daddy was out of town.

We are grateful for, cooler weather, time with Daddy, wine ; ) and yummy scents to bring in the new season!
