Five on Friday

Happpyyy Friday! Its been a while since I’ve linked up to one of these Five on Friday’s, so I’m excited to be back. We’ve been busy as ever- sometimes I feel like the fall season is one of our busiest because there is so much to do and see and experience.

1. Last week we went apple picking at one of our nearby farms. It was the perfect day of sun, and just being outside enjoying the perfect weather this time of year. Landon loved roaming the farm, seeing the animals, and of course munching on some apples. The only thing is now I have all these apples, and need some apple recipes to use them for! Anyone have any favorite apple recipes? You can read more about our apple picking adventure and see more pictures here.

2. On the same lines of fall activities, today we’re planning on heading our local fair, the Dixie Classic. I get super excited about going to fairs this time of year, the smells, and lights, and sounds are all so fun. This year I especially look forward to Landon’s reaction to it all, since last year he was only ten months old. 

 

3. Speaking of Landon, and his age. I am really struggling with the fact that I will have a two year old in two short months. The age two is a tough one for so many reasons. Not only will they be plagued with the “terrible twos” that I’ve heard so much about, but the age represents Landon officially being out of the “baby” stage. In my mind, two means he is a little boy now, officially. And that is so hard for me to grasp. I know we all say it, but why in the world does time go so fast with your kids?

 

4. Knowing that that two year birthday is coming also means Christmas is coming way too soon. How is it already October 11? I need to start shopping. Landon’s birthday falls one week to the day before Christmas, so I have a double whammy when it comes to shopping for gifts. What do I give for which occasion? Which deserves the “better” gift? Is it appropriate to just rewrap a toy he’s never played with?? (kidding…kind of.) It does kind of make me sick to think of more toys coming into this house when he has several that he has rarely touched. In an effort to get him something that isn’t just another toy, I’m looking at the Pottery Barn Anywhere Chairs, I’m sure he would love it, and its something that is not another train, or truck, or tractor to add to his collection. If I had a little girl I would be all over top of that green polka dot chair!

5. And for number five, I’m just gonna celebrate that it’s Friday, and I have taken the day off from work, so I’m home, curled up on the couch watching Landon play while I drink my second cup of coffee and watching the Today Show. I am one happy mama right now!

  1. I love all things Pottery Barn. I might have to get that chair for my little one for her 1st birthday coming soon. She would love it! Enjoy your day off! =)

  2. I have been thinking of getting Andrew an Anywhere Chair too!!! :)

    Also, for Christmas, Andrew only gets 3 gifts, to represent each of the three gifts Jesus received. So usually one gift is a "want", one is a "need" and one is a read/learn. :)
