Bienvenidos Otono!

For those who aren't sure what you just tried to read: Welcome Fall! It's actually getting chilly!!! Other than Sharon, most of you don't know how excited I am for this! Up until yesterday it's still been summer in St. Louis. As usual, someone forgot to tell the midwest that 90 degree temps were supposed to be over. We had a garage sale on Saturday and started unloading the basement (profiting from the purge!) at 6 am and was sweating after the first load. It's been consistently in the 90's which translates into tank tops, shorts, and sandals! And it's October!! Blah.

You may be saying, "but Katie, you were here until Thanksgiving last year, you didn't totally miss fall". And you would have a valid argument except that just like this year, last year was pretty warm pretty late into the season. I only had a couple weeks of fall before I headed to the land of eternal spring. Being a native Michigander, this does not settle well with me. I've been in 70+ temps for almost a full year, and while that sounds nice, it's not for me. I don't know how people in mono-climate areas do it.

So, today presents a fun decision. What outfit to put on Eliot? There is nothing cuter in all the world than Eliot in warm clothes. It just about puts me over the edge. (I am fully aware of how deep and challenging this post is getting for you readers...) I can't help it. It's a natural aspect of motherhood, right?

I'll keep this brief since you have 12 other blogs to read and this is not all that entertaining or thought provoking. I promise to offer you substance another day. But I will leave you with another entertaining picture...

You all could move to Alaska...and then Eliot would always be cute bundled in warm clothes 9 months out of the year! Whoo hoo! (with a tinge of sarcasm) :)

From a Chicagolander... I'm thrilled with this weather. I never knew hoodies could be so cute untl all 3 boys were in them this morning.

St. Louis is trying kindly to point you in the right direction, but obviously, you're not taking the hint so I will be clear... MOVE TO COLORADO!

I am in TOTAL agreement with you, Katie! I was actually yelling at the weatherman in my living room last week when he was announcing another day of 90 degree weather.

I love the pic of El, but I wanted to see the cute fall outfit you put him in! Um, yeah, I'm going to need a pic of that!
