Shaun here.  Kristine is a little under the weather, so I’m filling in.  Sorry, not too entertaining this week.

My Season Changing…….

We can put away the tank tops and flip flops, and break out the sweaters!!  Nothing says changing of the seasons like changing of the clothing.  You’d think the laundry level would improve, but it really just means more flannel and less t-shirts.

Beauty of Where I Call Home….

This is one of my favorite pictures.  When Kristine’s not beating the children, she actually likes them.  It’s true.  Seriously.

My Favorite Part of the Weather Changing….

The month of October for Kristine means she’ll be excited about one thing: Caramel apples at the Pumpkin Patch.  Pumpkins and ferris wheels and foods on a stick.

Did you play?

  25. Army of Mom Says:

    Shaun, you did a great job filling in. I love where you call home. That was great. You might lose your man card for the level of sensitivity exhibited here, though. ;) Although if you make a few fart jokes or something, you can earn it back.

    I played.

  29. SPF: Fall · Blog Archive · davedot dot com Says:

    […] I was worried for a bit that I wouldn’t get to participate in this week’s Stuff Portrait Friday. Kristine was a little late getting the challenge up, and with my hit-or-miss performance since I started, the odds looked stacked against me. Fortunately this week’s SPF is about my favorite time of year: Fall. […]

    I played!!!

  31. Lori Says:

    Your pumpkin patch place looks so fun!

    Hope you feel better soon, Kristine.

    I played.

  32. The Kept Woman Says:

    Love…actually all three pictures. I hope they are all in your family album!

    I played but wasn’t nearly as sweet and sentimental as you…shocking, I know.

  33. randomandodd Says:

    Hello everyone, Kristine here. Still feeling a bit icky, but it’s all about letting my body get use to the new dosage of meds. I feel like I am being run over by a truck everytime I get up to move around. I slept most of yesterday and I am hoping I have enough energy to move around today to get the place clean before I leave for the wedding.

  34. san Says:

    Oh… that’s right… you’re going to a wedding this weekend! I hope you’ll feel better and will be able to enjoy it! Hugs.
