A busy Fall

Maybe I’ve just been busy, but this year I haven’t taken as many Autumn pictures as I usually do. It has been pretty mild so far, but the leaves have pretty much fallen off the trees and blown away. {So much for the colorful pictures!} Haha!

I have however taken some pictures. See, I didn’t totally forget! πŸ˜‰ read more

Welcome Fall!

I ran across this post of mine from 2 years ago. Just seeing those beautiful golden leaves has got me so excited for fall. I’m already planning in my head pictures of my girls playing in the leaves, family pictures, and PLENTY of pictures of the leaves & trees themselves.

So, I thought I would share with y’all a few of my favorite photos. These two were taken when we lived in Northern California. Fall in Northern California does NOT disappoint! read more

Chalk Board Pumpkins- Fun for kids!

This year I wanted to try something different with our small pumpkins. I went and bought some chalkboard spray paint and sprayed the pumpkins all over. {Except for the stems}. Then after they were dry, the girls had fun drawing all over them. It was something different than we have done in the past. Before we painted them with bright colors or decorated them in one way or another. This year we had black pumpkins with drawings all over them! πŸ˜‰

The girls enjoyed it. They really like being able to erase and start fresh! πŸ˜€

A Beautiful {Fall} Day!

The girls and I went for a walk in this beautiful weather. (Although, I pulled Jadyn in the wagon and Jacey decided to take her bike.) πŸ˜€
It quickly turned into a leaf hunt.

It was such a beautiful day! read more

Decorating for Fall {quick & easy ways to change your home's look}

I love decorating for Fall! Some of my favorite colors are the “Fall” colors anyway, so it’s pretty easy to add to my decor–and have it blend in seamlessly! My home has lots of warm colors: reds, greens, browns, etc. I just changed up a few things, added some new things, and my home now says “Welcome Fall!” πŸ˜€

Table setting on the cheap. The table runner was purchased at Big Lots. I made the glass jars from candy dishes and candle holders. πŸ™‚ read more
