Fall at Our House


  This is another of those hodge podge posts I've done before. So much has gone on lately and things have been a bit crazy that rather than parcel some of these events out I'm going to lump them all together! Kay?

Lets start with some of the fall decor, that way, if that's all you came for, you don't need to check out the rest. Thoughtful of me, I know! ;)

I have to say first off that it is so hard to decorate a fireplace that has a TV above it. Can I get an 'amen' on this?! And don't get me started on that cable box! But, we don't live in a show house, this is real life, and yes we have a cable box. {I'm trying some self-talk here~it may or may not be working}.




  My favorite fall decor item is this chevron pumpkin I made last year. This really was an easy project. Check out the tutorial here if you want to make one for yourself.



And then, these cuties are growing up! Where does the time go? If you are a young mom and life is just hard right now, I'm telling you, it will change, and soon! I hate to admit this but my first day off from work when all the kids were in school I was at the grocery store and started crying when I saw these younger moms with their little "helpers". I don't have one anymore! {Or at least not between the hours of 7:30-3:30!}





This past week my grandpa passed away. He was an amazing man who overcame so many odds {through his faith in Christ Jesus}. He was the kind of guy who could make anything out of anything. He and my gram lived in Alaska for many years and hunted and fished for their meat. They were very self sustaining people and used everything they had. I like to say that they invented "reduce, reuse, and recycle" because that was just their life. My gram is still a go-getter and at 90 was up on her roof fixing shingles this summer. I am excited to fly out there this weekend to celebrate my grandpa's life and see my extended family. I have one or two more posts to share with you this week but things may be sparse for a week or so. {If you think of my hubby you might say a prayer for him while I'm away! He's an amazing dad, but 4 days with 4 kids and a puppy is a bit much for anybody!} ;)

Thanks for stopping by!
