At Home.....another perfect October weekend! 
Y'all come on in! 

I do hope you have filled some jars with candy corn! 
It's the darling's favorite treat for the season!
 Don't you love adding some dry roasted peanuts among those delicious bites of candy? 

It was Homecoming weekend for the grandchildren! Where oh where are the years going? They look so grown up every time we seen them! Not to worry...too young for actual "dates"..just going as friends to the football game! Now take note...remember this is Texas and those "BIG" mums have been a tradition for some time now! I made these for all my children, along with the mum arm bands for the guys. You know what they say about "everything being bigger in Texas!"

Grandson Noah and his friend Reagan! 

Over in Atlanta, Miss M, hubby and little Luke the Duke attended the Mt. Pisgah High School Friday night game. Luke received some extra special attention from a rather cute cheerleader and developed quite a "crush" I hear! OH MY! 

Miss Mae preferred to bask in some sunshine...
far away from the weekend visitor, known as Bo! 
Bo has not yet learned to leave kitties alone! 
Mae has refrained from giving him a good swat on his nose! 

Rob was home for yet another wedding...the second in the last month! All the long time friends are getting married! It's unbelievable to have known these "kids" for a number of years and see them all grown up, having graduated from college, establishing careers and getting married! Life goes on......

 Food is about love....when you cook something for someone....
it shows how much you love them! 

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Afternoon Tea Time

Eggs over easy for a good morning breakfast!

Lunch of homemade chicken salad sandwiches and Greg's White Chicken Chili!

Both Saturday and Sunday were perfect October days.....
almost cool enough for a light last!  

As the sun began to set and cast shadows over the trees with those leaves slowly turning....
we were again  so thankful for a happy and healthy family! 


  1. I haven't heard of white chicken chilli. Could you share the recipe, please Estelle? Those little pots look delicious!

    1. Hi Joolz! Yes I will post his recipe. I have a previous post entitled Miss Bobbiie's White Chicken Chili, however my son adds a few special touches and it is the best I have ever tasted! I am so happy to hear from you and wish you a beautiful autumn season!

  2. Thank you, Estelle. We folks down under are gearing up for a hot summer. It is currently spring until December 1st but we are experiencing some hot weather already. It was 37C (98.6F) in our capital of Adelaide but a bit cooler here at 27C (80.6F). I just love all of your beautiful fall decorations - we Aussies don't tend to decorate for each season like you do in the US.
    I look forward to having a go at the white chilli recipe, thanks again!

    Cheers - Joolz xx


I so love receiving your thoughts and comments. I also hope you found something that made you smile.
