Hello Fall

Fall is in full swing and we are loving it!  It is my favorite season, the colors, the cooler temperatures, the crunchy leaves, I love it all!  Heather has our house decorated for fall, so let's take a little tour.  
The tree in our front yard is looking awesome right now, green to bright red!
 We made these pumpkins out of 4x4 posts and then some white and orange paint and added some sticks for stems.
 Our chalkboard sign got an orange pumpkin...and that went up on the mantel
 Ta da...our fall inspired mantel.
 I also built a frame out of pallet wood and painted a leaf on some burlap
 Close up of those wood pumpkins
 "Welcome Fall"
 Heather saw a wreath like this on Pinterest and made her own for our front turned out great!
 Our mums are starting to pop and we got two pumpkins ready for carving jack-o-lanterns!
And that's the tour!  Next thing you know, we will be getting out the Christmas decorations!

3rd birthday!!!

Birthday's are a big deal in our house, we love to celebrate birthday's and make the day awesome!  We also have a standing rule that we don't work on birthday's, so we all took the day off to celebrate Trigg's birthday!
We wanted to surprise Trigg, so we rigged up a bunch of balloons...
to fall when he opened his door in the morning!
He loved it and has been playing with the balloons since!
Trigg requested Casey's donuts for breakfast
3 candles for this 3 year old!
After breakfast, Trigg and I headed to SkyZone for Toddler Time!
 We were 2 of 15 people there and had a blast jumping on the trampolines!
We stopped at Chick-Fil-A for lunch and then Heather and Trigg ran some errands in the afternoon to get Trigg's cake topper for his party (Dusty Crophopper!).
We had a "plane" themed party, complete with our own pilot!
Heather did an awesome job planning and preparing the party.  It looked great!
All set up and ready for the party
Beverage table
All set
The tables had cloud place mats with airplane center pieces.
The birthday boy!
Our "in flight" meal
Sign for "Check-In, Arrivals & Departures"
Trigg loves story time, so we read the book "Planes Fly"
Followed by a the propeller on the plane!
We got some pretty close...and some no where near the mark!
