Picture Dump ;)

I really need to get better about writing on here more consistently. It seems like when there's nothing going on I don't have anything to write about, and when there is a lot going on I have no time to write it. A picture says a thousand words, so I'm going to put a bunch of pictures up, (mostly of Daria) and hopefully I will write more posts in the near future.

Here we are at the pumpkin patch! 

Little cheeser

I don't know why she was upset by getting eaten by a giant pumpkin. ;) 

Although the leaves don't really change around here during Fall, I still insisted on taking some Fall pictures. And although it was pretty windy and cold and Daria was not a happy camper most the time, we still got some good pictures, plus it was a fun Autumn day at the park. 

And then a few Fall pictures

Like I said, it was pretty windy and cold, so we didn't get too many pictures of Daria smiling...or looking at the camera. ;) 

And my final picture dump of the day is Daria's six month old pictures.  Time really has flown by. It's crazy my little baby is six  months old already and so ready to crawl and walk and be a big girl. She is definitely getting her own little personality and character. She is a wild child, for sure, but I suppose the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.  ;) 

She loved the flash...And she's just a natural! ;) 

Trying soo hard to sit up

Alright, well I'll end there before I find more pictures I need to put on. I hope you enjoyed Daria's cuteness. I certainly do, well most the time at least. ;)

The Scarecrow

I'm awoken from sleep, and I start to remember
There's a smell in the air that means it's September.

The field is awaiting and so are the crows,
Though I doubt I can scare them in these ragged clothes.

Autumn approaches but you know, after all,
I have never been a great lover of Fall.

The crows bore me to tears and the corn does too
And it grows so tall that it blocks my view.

I can't see the bonfires that are roaring nearby 
Or the children as they throw leaves in the sky. 

And I just wish I could taste that smell in the air 
Of the apple and pumpkin pies being prepared.

Though there's nothing quite like an October sun rise
It does wake up the crows and get in my eyes.

It is a great pleasure to feel the crisp breeze 
And watch the leaves twirl as they fall from the trees.

And there are I suppose lovely colors displayed  
on calm quiet evenings of still Autumn days.

There are some Fall  things that aren't bad I confess,
But a scarecrow's opinion isn't the best.

If the crows weren't so dull and the corn weren't so tall
I think I could actually learn to love Fall.

Our childhood scarecrow who almost always makes his Autumn debut. "Jack the Haystack" has been around since before I can remember and he was always a necessity to bringing on the season.

The rather old picture was stolen from my Mom, Lisa Davis. Thanks Mom. ;)
