Happy Fall, Y'all!

I know it's technically been fall for a while, but it sure hasn't felt like it. Hopefully the cooler temperatures will start to settle in and the crisp weather will match the date on the calendar. Fall is our favorite season around here! Shayne likes it because of hunting and football seasons. Travis likes it because of his birthday. And I like it because of the decorations!
I love my fall decorations...
Our wooden pumpkin face that fits perfectly beside our back door; my super cute doormat I found at Target this year; and crotons--the only plant I don't kill--have beautiful fall colors!
The kids love to see the Halloween table decorations come out!
An oldie but goodie--I've actually had this witch candy bowl since before the kids were born. It's motion activated to scream at you when you go for the candy corn. And who doesn't love that?
New this year--Shayne's parents gave us our newest decoration. This awesome witch that looks great on our staircase. Love it!

And last but not least, if you're a follower of the blog, you know Shayne and the boys planted a little pumpkin patch this summer. WE HAVE PUMPKINS!!! Our initial goal was at least two pumpkins (one for each of them) and Shayne was prepared to spray paint them orange if they didn't turn on their own. But they did and we're the proud owners of at least two homegrown pumpkins! Thanks Shayne for all your hard work! We can't wait until harvest time!

You are clearly more disciplined than I am - - If I had a bowl of candy corn sitting out, I'd be on a sugar high from now till Halloween!! :)

Yeah! I am so excited that they have pumpkins! I have to be careful not to let Miranda see that one, haha. She's obsessed with seeing the blog and always wants to know when I'm going to make hers look like Travis's...she's just going to be heartbroken when she understands the whole cousin thing, haha!
