The Great Pumpkin

Tonight after soccer practice and supper, we settled into the den to watch the classic, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, which first aired on October 27, 1966. Sarah Wynn laughed hysterically at Snoopy. :0)

Into the Woods

Yesterday we had a friend over from school (Whitney) and they went exploring in the woods behind our house. I’m not sure what they were playing, but I absolutely love their imagination. The photo below was taken on school picture day last week. 

God’s Big Refrigerator

Today is a guest blogger: Kristy Caston I preface this post by saying that the Caston family children love to drink milk. Therefore, I am always “out of milk.” If I buy one gallon, they drink it in a few days. If I buy two gallons… gone in a few days. If I buy three…

Jeep Troubles and Prayer for Nigerian Husband/Father

Today on my way to Presbytery my Jeep died in the turning lane of a major road in Atlanta- Holcomb Bridge Rd. Thankfully, AAA was on the scene quickly and towed me to a shop near our house.  They got to the Jeep this afternoon and will have it ready for pick up first thing…

Day in the Park

The other day I took Sarah Wynn to our neighborhood park while I got some work done on a picnic table. I did take time to snap a few pics of Sarah Wynn playing with some new friends.

Springer Mountain & Long Creek Falls

Yesterday I took the day off to hike the Appalachian Trail to the summit of Springer Mountain (3,782′) and down to Long Creek Falls. The trail begins just northwest of Dahlonega. Temps were in the 60s on the mountain and not a cloud in the sky.   Tonight Kristy is hosting a Southern Living party…

Lunch on the Square

After we enjoyed the Monteluce Winery Fall Festival on Saturday, we stopped by the square in Dahlonega to have lunch at the Front Porch. Here are some scenes. Eating “dogs” upstairs on the balcony at the Front Porch. A bear got spooked back in ’98 (or ’96…), ran into town and climbed the tree in the background….

Day at Monteluce Winery

We spent the day today at the Monteluce Winery Fall Festival. We enjoyed live music, pumpkin painting, a hayride and more. The beautiful vineyard is just a few miles northwest of Dahlonega, and is one of five state of the art wineries (with more to come) in Lumpkin County, which has caused the Dahlonega area…

Welcome Over Whitney

The other day Whitney Blount came over to play. The kids all had a blast—had full run of the basement dressed in costume. Even went outside in the rain and got drenched. Sarah Wynn kept up pretty well, too.

Gillian McDonald’s B’day Party

On Sunday afternoon, we enjoyed being guests at Gillian McDonald’s birthday party. The McDonalds are friends of ours here in the burbs of ATL.

First Fire of the Year

On Saturday evening, Oct. 4, we built our first fire of the fall. Here are some highlights of what will become a very common experience at night in our home.
