Goodbye, Garden; Hello, Autumn!

We had our first hard frost yesterday and now the garden is done, except for the chives and a small patch of spinach and lettuce I planted for a fall crop.  It has been such a fun garden all summer long, and we are sad to see it go, but we are excited for the new season and all the fun things coming up this year!  Halloween is always great in our very close knit neighborhood, and the colors are beautiful.  We usually have gorgeous fall days--perfectly cool and lots of great activities going on.  Not to mention, we have a baby coming in the next month.  How exciting! 

We picked the pumpkins and worked a bit on winterization of the garden and yard yesterday during general conference (we brought the speakers outside).  It was a beautiful day and the kids loved helping heave the pumpkins to the front porch.  They look so fun and festive now.  I love this time of year!

I think your frost was harder than ours, which is pretty crazy considering that we had snow and you didn't.
