Beautiful, Busy Fall

Hello! I won't even bother to apologize for taking so long to post...I guess once every couple weeks is going to be normal!

In September, some of the church men got together for a prayer breakfast.
Aaron's been spending some time in Badger helping a church with some construction.
This church bought an old house next door, and is remodeling it into a nursery, classrooms, and guest apartment.
Aaron also went with one of the kids from our church to the youth conference in Ill. with my parent's church. He had a good time - they got to go to our friend's corn maze and in spite of some van trouble, made it home safely. He was also at a Pastor's conference last week, so I'm very glad he's back!
The whole group that went - you can't see Aaron very well - he's in the blue shirt in front of the red door.

While Aaron was gone, I worked on our wedding album a bunch (maybe I'll post some more of those pictures one of these days...) and helped out at the corn maze some since a lot of their regular help was gone.

The baby still seems to be doing fine - I'm due two weeks from today, but that's a little hard to believe. We went to the hospital one day and toured the "birthing wing" - it was pretty nice and I'm glad to be able to picture it better. Also, we ordered cloth dipers and I've been trying to wash the clothes we do have and things like that...

As far as the garden goes - we've canned as many tomatos as we could handle, froze some of the sweet potatos in puree form, pickled some jalepenos, as well as some beets, and are trying out some sauerkraut.
One day, just for fun, Aaron and I went out to the state forest and while we were there we couldn't resist taking a bunch of pictures. The fall colors were so beautiful!
I really like the mix of the yellows/oranges, with the dark green.

This was a couple weeks ago though, now almost all of the leaves are gone.
Aaron was out visiting a church family, and he stopped to take these pictures on the way.
If you look close, you can see a deer jumping off into the woods.
Hope you have a great fall!
