Perfect Fall Day

Today, I woke up, sighed, and thought ...fall! Addison and I drank hot chocolate and ate pancakes for breakfast. I had a hair appointment, we ran a couple of errands, and then we went to Mary's Place for some fall shopping. We bought some pumpkins and 2 huge, beautiful mums! I love this time of year!

Addison decided the pumpkins were big enough to sit on!

We got home, and I lit every pumpkin scented candle I could find! We went into the attic and got down the fall decorations-although we never got around to unpacking them! We carried on our new tradition from last year... Decorating a pumpkin. This year, Addison was able to cut out (kinda:)) some of the body parts from a magazine by herself. (Click here for last year's pumpkin)

We glued them on...

And we have a (somewhat scary) perfect face on our pumpkin! HA!

The finished product with the hair and "hair holder."
We finished the night by building a fire and cooking hot dogs! It was a great day!

I love fall too! We stayed outside for 5 hours today! Thats a cool idea for the pumpkin...we'll have to do that. Im not "into" carving a pumpkin, so thats a good alternative.
