Can't Wait To Go Home for the Holidays

So as I mentioned in my previous post, I have experienced being homesick for the first time in my life... it's making time go by so slow, I am counting down the days till we get to go and I can hardly stand how long it's taking.

There is so much waiting for us! Family, Friends, good food, a city, time with Adam... golly why does time have to go by so slow.

"Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn."

Fall has been a full season in the Root house here what we've been up to...

1. Spent an 80 degree weekend at Myrtle Beach, SC the last weekend of September
2. Little Andrew was born early, but healthy (my friend Dolly's baby)
3. 1st time I ever made Mackenzie's Halloween costume
4. Went to Women of Faith conference for the first time
5. Experienced being homesick (probably the first time in my life)
6. Went to the North Carolina State Fair and tried a deep fried Oreo
7. Made an entire Thanksgiving feast for the 3 of us
8. Started celebrating the Christmas season
9. Mackenzie rescued a kitty

Being silly, what you're not seeing is Mackenzie rolling her eyes :)

Nope that's not a mistake, the windows are open and it's the end of October! 75 degrees!
