Come on Fall!

Steve and I share the same favorite season...Fall. I can't wait for him to come home. His favorite Holiday is Thanksgiving too. Ben and Madi are out of school this week for their Fall Break. I have already busted out the pumpkins and witches and all things fall. Here is a fun stick tree on my dinning room table. Many many years ago my friend Leslie (aka decorating queen) gave me the idea of using sticks and now I do for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Valentines and Easter to make all kinds of festive trees.
Yesterday was cloudy and cooler...I loved it. So late afternoon we hit a local park. This is the coolest park with lots and lots of toys to play on. There are also these little roads and little street signs weaving in and out of the park so kids can ride around on their bikes like it's a real cute. Madi looks like Forrest Gump...if she was going somewhere she was running.

My brown-eyed girl.

Ben and Madi LOVE to swing...and high.

Yep not to long before your hubby will make it home.

Love the stick tree...I saw a lot of this last year and I plan on making me one this year also.

Funny you should share about swings cause I love swinging as much as your kids do to.

Can't wait to see all your fall goodies out again and what new things you do.

I'm with you, fall is the best. I love it when you can fell that chill in the air. Your stick tee is adorable, I want to see more of your fall decorations. It looks like you have such a beautiful home. So excited for you to have your hubby home soon, I don't know how your military wives do it, your amazing!!!

I LOVE the fall season! I too have brought a few goodies out and I'm burning one of the new autumn scents from Yankee. It is really chilly here today and I'm thinking of putting on a light sweater :)

So happy for you that you're days a part are almost over.
