The autumn air was light and crispy, exactly the way fall air is supposed to be. A few fallen leaves scattered up the path to the Schellers’ sweet, welcoming pumpkin-lined porch. There, a cheerful flag waved in a gentle greeting as I entered the bustling home. Mia was gathering ingredients to make Snickerdoddle cupcakes, and not to be outdone, her brothers were pulling together their own sweet treat: chocolate covered marshmallows. The familiar hum of college football played low in the living room, while Tiffany cracked eggs and Mia scanned her recipe.
Toby knelt in his quiet, sun drenched bedroom. He deftly assembled a new Star Wars Lego with the organization and concentration of a seasoned pro.
Mia fills pale liners with sweet, gooey batter, while Griffin, Steve and Tiffany set up the dining room table for a couple lightning fast rounds of Nertz.
