Happy Halloween

I hope that everyone is having a spooktacular Halloween this year. I just can't believe how quickly this year has gone by. It seems like we just celebrated Halloween a couple of months ago. Here are some pictures of the pumpkins that we carved this year. Pictures from the Halloween party will be posted in the next few days. Leave us a comment with which pumpkin is your favorite.

Jumping in

This weekend was a beautiful fall weekend in Northwest Arkansas. Sadly yesterday it was cloudy and we aren't able to go take fall foliage pictures. Hopefully this weekend the trees still have their leaves. So since we couldn't take pictures yesterday we decided we better rake up our leaves in the front yard. This is the first year that we have lived here that we have actually had to rake leaves. Normally the leaves fall so quickly that we don't get a chance to rake them up because they blow into the neighbor's yards. Baxter had a great time running and jumping into the piles of leaves. I wish that the fall leaves would stick around a little bit longer but it looks like we aren't going to get that chance.

Falling into fall

I have never been one who really likes fall because I don't like cooler weather. But the fall season brings lots of enjoyable things like fall foliage, coats, jackets, hoodies, pumpkins, hot chocolate, apple cider, bon fires, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and I guess the football season! I love decorating for fall and especially Halloween. A couple of weekends ago I went to the Apple Festival with my family while Chris went to Dallas for the football game. I love the Apple Festival because you get fresh apples, cider, and you get to look at all of the crafts, although this year I was disappointed in the craft selection that they had. This coming weekend is the biggest craft fair weekend in our area. Chris's parents are coming up this weekend to go to them. I'm hoping to get some more fall decorations and it looks like the weather is going to be a cool fall day. Here are my top five favorite autumn things:

1. Fall Foliage- I love it when the trees start changing color, it is my favorite time of year to take pictures

2. Pansies- They are my absolute favorite flower to plant. I wish that they could survive in summer!

3. Halloween- I love almost everything about Halloween. From decorating to having parties, dressing up, and I love the candy!!

4. Fall clothes- I absolutely love coats and jackets, anything that is warm and cozy. I wish that I could wear them all year.

5. Pumpkins- Especially pumpkin pie concretes from Andy's Frozen Custard! Although I love being able to carve them as well.
