This year I decided to give the whole "domestic decorator" thing a try. I figured that the kids are old enough to like decorations, so we should probably put some up. Here goes!
We have an amazing neighbor couple. I spoke with the wife and told her that we were trying to decorate this year. She is great! She has brought over a bunch of corn stalks, grown in her garden. She also dug out some decor that she isn't using and brought us a broom for the door, some little figures and a pumpkin that she grew in her yard. We are so lucky to have someone so wonderful around us. When she dropped of some of the decorations, I mentioned that Alex was sick. Later that day they brought over a book for him and a note wishing him well. Sure makes the world seem smaller and more cozy when you have good people around you!
Skyler and I drew a pumpkin family to add to our fall decorations. Can you guess who is who? I drew them, but Skyler cut and taped them under Dusty's supervision. I pulled in the driveway after work to find them up, and thought they were the perfect touch. Hopefully next week we'll go to the pumpkin patch and add a few real pumpkins to the mix.
Alex is getting better. Still a sniffle and a low fever, but nothing near the scary night of being up with 104 degrees. I think those nights are just made to break me in before the kids start getting sports injuries!
