We had a great Saturday....................so sunny and pretty outside. I took a break from our activities and got some shots of our Autumn Blaze Maple Tree. Love that tree! We planted it a few years ago in our yard. We needed some nice front yard trees. So we splurged and planted this Autumn Blaze. Mostly for the reason below. Wonderful color in the fall. Turns colorful reds and oranges. It's a very nice tree but kinda expensive if your looking to buy a tree. So worth it when it turns color in the fall. I always look forward to this tree in October. We never had regretted splurging on this tree. It grew pretty fast too. It's getting pretty big.
I took some pixs of our outdoor pumpkin set up on our front stoop. We really needed new scarecrows this year but I couldn't find any I liked at the store. So we gave up and put out our old ones. They look ok here but they are really getting rotted out from being out in the elements. I always opt to put out these fake light up pumpkins. The real pumpkins just don't last long enough, and rot out or the candle doesn't stay lit in them. So these light up ones we love. No maintenance on them just plug them in. No carving either!
I made a new hay bale scene in my hall room entry way(inside the house). See above. I bought those ceramic pumpkins from Joann's Fabrics. Love the Welcome and FALL on the pumpkins. I ended up buying the BOO rock for Aaron. He loved it at the store. However, it was really really super annoying. So I had to shut it off. Every time I walked by it would make a sinister laughing noise. It was cute at first but after awhile it drives you nuts. Ha ha ha Muffin hated the BOO rock too. I was going to put it out in my rock bed when the kids come by at Halloween, to scare them(it is motion sensored) but decided instead to put it indoors. Not sure how it would hold up outside in the cold and rain? I ended up buying a little hay bale to set all the pumpkins and the boo rock to make a fall scene.
We had a very low key weekend. Doug is working on the porch full force now. I will post pixs of the progress this week. Along with a post on a Kiesch I made over the weekend(yummo it was good). Hope everyone is having a fantastic Fall season thus far.
