Evelyn is all ready for Grandma and Grandpa to arrive tomorrow... (Mommy and Daddy are pretty excited to see them too.)

Yes, it's yet another baby picture... She's just so photogenic, and we're pretty besotted.

One of my favorite pictures of Evelyn, taken when she was only a week and a half old. She still really likes napping with her arms over her head.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is some pretty engrossing literature these days.

Bluebell ice cream has returned to the stores in DFW, and there is much rejoicing indeed! Ben and I are pretty much ruined now when it comes to other ice cream, so maybe we are becoming Texans...

Sometimes you just need to take things easy for a bit. Habibti is a great role model!

We have a quilt over one of our bedroom windows to make it easier for Evelyn to nap right now. It's really pretty when the sun comes through it in the afternoon!

Evelyn had to go to bed before she could hand out any candy to trick-or-treaters, but she supervised the pumpkin carving before going to sleep.

The leaves may be coming down, and the weather may be a bit more fallish, but I can still rake barefoot, and that's just confusing.

I broke my no-flour rule in a spectacular fashion when we received this amazing gift box from Ben's grandparents to celebrate Evelyn. So good!

Evelyn likes to help mommy work on the computer. She's not very good at typing yet, though...

The Dallas Arboretum wasn't all pumpkins and child's tears when we visited it last Wednesday...

Yesterday, we went to the Dallas Arboretum's Fall Pumpkin Patch so Evelyn could see what fall is sort of supposed to look like. I had a great time!

Evelyn, however, was initially skeptical about taking pictures...

...and then unquestionably unimpressed.

The zucchini noodles were surprisingly attractive as they dehydrated in preparation for lasagna.

I only had my phone with me, so the pictures are not great quality, but Evelyn got to spend time with her cousin, Edmund. She was nonplussed.

Evelyn and I visited a nearby rose garden on Friday after dropping off dinner for a friend. While Evelyn was a not particularly impressed, I enjoyed it a great deal.
