I’m so glad you’re here and hope that you will hang around_
maybe even introduce yourself…I would love to get to know you, too.
This blog of mine I started to document our life.
To share our loves_ our joys_ our pains_ our struggles_
our day-to-day_our randomness.
It has become so much more than I ever could have imagined.
If you were to come and visit me today…walking up to my door you would find it decorated with a few odds & ends.
I’ve kinda gone Cra-z-y over all the bunting & pennants lately.
I’m shooting for a goal to have one hanging in each room of the house.
So of course, I had to add in one over the doorway.
The big ole’ pumpkin on the urn we bought like 3 weeks ago and he has lasted quite well.
I was concerned he may not make it through, but he has,
and will hopefully be here for Thanksgiving time, too.
I decorate more for Fall that way when Thanksgiving is over I can go straight into my Christmas things. And Christmas is my fave.
This little guy I purchased from Wal-Mart around 5 years ago.
He is fiber optic and the kids when they were smaller liked him because of all the pretty colors he would change into.
Well this year I hadn't put him out and the then unloading some more boxes the other day I found him and brought him in the kitchen.
That's all it took, the kids got one look at him and said he had to be put out.
I thought they were over him...but I guess not. I guess he's a keeper.
I’m not exactly sure what the pumpkin roll is???
All I know is it sounded good and so I went with it.
We’ll just make it up as we go along... and have fun doing it.:)
This weekend we were invited over to some friend’s house for a
Pumpkin Carving Party.
The invitation said “BYOP”….bring your own pumpkin.
We arrived to find they had supplied all of the tools needed to carve out the pumpkins, tons of books with templates, and plenty of table space for all to gather round’
and get to creating.
Middle didn't like the guts part. So she let youngest take them out for her.
After you carved your pumpkins it was time to have your picture made
by Mr. Frankenstein.
He was gi-normous and pretty spooky looking.
They even had a smoke machine going for an added effect to your photo.
Hubs tried to do a mustache man and I tried to do a hoot owl.
Overall they came out pretty good.
We stood back admiring our lighted pumpkins and then...
we did the pumpkin roll.
