Fall

I Absolutely love the fall. The reasons that I look forward to the fall is that I get to see all the fun decorations popping up everywhere. I love seeing the pumpkins piled up on hay stacks on display at the stores. I love the look of fallen leaves as they whirl about in the wind or after a car has driven past them. I love the rich warm colors taking over the neighbor hood trees and I love the feeling of bundling up on a crisp cool day.

Right before it snowed last weekend, Luke picked all of our pumpkins. This year we ended up with 11 Little Jacks and 6 Big Jack pumpkins. We were so excited with how many we got since last year only 1 survived and we think it got crossed with a squash so it was really weird. We can't wait until our Baker pumpkin carving party so that we can put these out on display.

My little Jacks. This was my latest attempt to be somewhat creative and have some sort of Fall decor in our house.

Our 6 Big Jack pumpkins ready and waiting to be carved.

I love your little Jack decoration! It is so cute and the best part is that you grew them your selves. Maybe I should try to grow pumpkins next year...

I'm so sad about pumpkins! That is my favorite thing to do in October and we can't carve ours until just days before Halloween because it gets too warm here and they go moldy! :( But did I mention it's warm here?? Yep 80's still! It's awesome!
THANKS SO MUCH for the addoption Link!! You guys are AWESOME!! :)
