Fall

I love the fall. I love mums. I love the smells outside and hearing the leaves fall off of the trees (though I hate the mess they leave on the ground!) I love going to the pumpkin patch and watching Lilly run around and watching her enjoy her surroundings.....


I love watching her find just the right pumpkin....


I love taking walks with the beautiful fall colors around us...


I love hearing her laugh....


I love fall! In other news we have lots going on here at the Bombria house! Lillian has been doing well in school. Me and Dan are doing well with work. And of course the house is doing well! Currently the valleys in the slate roof are being replaced in the front part of the house. There's a lot of labor involved since he has to remove like 3 or 4 rows of slate to be able to replace the metal and each slate tile has it's own pin holding it in, but thankfully Stanley is really good at what he does and we decided to have him do both valleys even though we were only planning on doing one because he's so quick. He'll also be replacing all of the broken slates and putting some protective stuff on the back valleys until we replace them in a year or two since they don't need to be replaced immediately. At least now I can repaint the spare bedroom and cover up the water damage! Dan has also been very busy and is getting close to done with the outside for the year. As you'll see in the below picture, he replaced all of the decorative moulding on the front of the house since it was rotted out and cleaned up the slate roof (you can still see the spot where he was standing that still needs to be cleaned up but it looks SOOOO much better now!) We also have a brand new storm door that he installed. Right now he's putting in two layers of insulation in the attic so we'll stay nice and toasty this winter and we'll be replacing the front windows in the coming weeks as well. The only thing left to do on the front of the house is the lattice work which he has contructed but just needs to install. Thankfully he agreed that repainting the garage needs to be put off till next year......time to focus on the kitchen!! Anyways, here's a pic of the house......can't wait to do the landscaping next year to complete the look!!!
