October Fun

On Saturday Benjamin and I were invited to go to the circus with our friends from church. They called us up explaining that they had some extra tickets to the circus and wanted us to go! I was so excited! The first and last time I went to the circus was when I was pretty little. But I never forgot it! The little dog that did back flips. The beautiful tigers! The smell of popcorn and cotton candy! And all the kids everywhere! 

Winston must have understood we had somewhere fun to go that night, because he didn't fall asleep for his afternoon nap. He stayed awake and then once we had arrived and got ourselves seated he looked around at all the noise and excitement and fell asleep lol! :) He did wake up about forty-five minuets later and got to enjoy some of the excitement. 

Being at the circus with many other families and smelling all those yummy aromas including the animals,  ushered in the fall season for me. Being in sunny Florida I am a little confused with the seasons, except for summer of course!  I want to wear a jacket and scarf and see the leaves fall from the trees. The leaves are beginning to fall a tad and that helps, but the circus that night gave me a wonderful memory of this season and it was delightful.

~Here he is above after we had found our seats. He fell asleep not too long after this picture. He looks so tired.

~My sweet and I

~Below are some pictures I took of little Winnie while out for a walk. We had a bit of coolness in the weather last week and it was so nice to get out in it!  Winston is looking so big in these pictures! Where did the little tiny baby go?

~Benjamin laughs so hard because Winston's feet are identical to mine. 
Flat with long toes! :)

~You can see his two bottom teeth in this one! 

~Such kissable cheeks! 

Tonight I am going to a women's Bible study at our church and I can't wait! And Benjamin will be attending the Royal Rangers class because he is taking them on a tour of his helicopter hanger at the base in a few weeks. They are really excited!

Yesterday I got a package from my mom in the mail. It was filled with delights and aromas that filled our house with love and joy! Its as if my Mom and Dad were here in our home. I am so thankful for such wonderful parents. 

Happy midweek to all! 


O LORD, you are my God;
       I will exalt you and praise your name,
       for in perfect faithfulness
       you have done marvelous things,
       things planned long ago.

What fun! You know, I have never been to the circus?

I love your Bible verse at the end too.

I have read this adorable post 3times, and I keep getting interrupted before I get to the comments!!!! :-P
What a great post though! Circus fun, baby pics and even a sweet couple pic in there.
We wanted to take our troop to the circus last week, until we saw the ticket price, (((gulp))) so we bought the DVD. :-D
Thank you for sharing such a fun night!!!

Love you!!!

How fun! I love that smiling pic of Winston where his teeth are visible - so cute! And the couple pic is great! :)

Your comment about adjusting to a place where fall doesn't "feel" the same reminds me so much of how I felt in San Diego and in Israel. Now I'm reminded to be extra grateful of the wonderful fall feeling that it's easy to get here in Virginia. Thanks for the reminder, and I'll say an extra prayer of gratitude today for the beautiful leaves and other fall things around me.

Well, I can't believe that you posted 4 days ago and I am just now reading and seeing. Its been a busy week, but if I had realized there were these delights awaiting me, I would I have gotten on even at midnight. I loved hearing about the circus.... I love the doggies that do back flips all the other sights and smells just like you described.... I'm pretty sure the last time I have been to the Circus was when you guys were, I just had a remembrance... we went in Russia when we were there. Its delightful in any country.

Precious Winston is getting so big. I love his darling teeth coming in and his adorable feet that look like yours. Cute Picture of you and Benjamin.
I loved your words about fall too; it put pictures in my mind. I love the scripture you put.
Love you and miss you so much sweetie.

What a lovely post. And oh, oh oh... these legs! Oh really, I've gotta stop saying it - he will grow up with a complex! But they're adorable. And the double chin......too sweet.
I've never been to the circus. Sounds great.
Loved the photo of you and hubby - very lovely.
Oh, and I get really confused with Winnie and Winston. My mind plays tricks.
One minute I see the honourable and brave and strong Winston Churchill, and I almost want to stand to attention.
And then....then you call him Winnie, and I see Winnie the Pooh and I want to hug him!
My mind is confused enough at the best of doesn't need this extra help!!
Love as always, Anne x
