Touches of Fall

I’ve been trying to spruce our house up with a few pieces of fall decor this past week. This morning I added this to the door that hangs above the couch in our Great Room.

Small bits here and there.
And NO the belly is not that big yet. I pulled out this frame and the picture was already there. I love this photo of Monkey listening to his brother Bogie.IMG_5823
The boys and I made these pumpkins following Alisa’s tutorial. (The Sweet Life)

This was a great activity, I layered everything up and then had them follow whatever I did. Even Bogie pretty much got it right without much help from me. I highly recommend making these. My boys especially loved shoving the branches from Grandma Judy’s house into the center.

And as I was walking around fidgeting with photos around the house, I kept hearing “Dink!…Dink!…Dink!”
Only to come back and find this!
Supposedly its a new target for them and they love the sound. I only got Bogie in the shot, but you can see the tip of Monkey’s gun in the upper right corner.

And this, my friends, is Decorating 101 Dunbar Man style.

I love it. I dragged all my fall stuff out last week hoping it would cool off if I started decorating....didn't work out!
Your craft looks so cute. I'll have to give that a try next year when K can do it!!

They are serving the Lord with Nerf dart guns! It is what boys do. A different definition that the serving it was intended to mean. However, those pumpkins look strangely familiar like the ones at MY house!!!! Missy and I put them up this week too, but unlike you I made them prekiddo days. Maybe I need to revisit that craft with my crafty ones. It made me think, you were thinking of me! ;)

I love the plate. I think I got that for my sister one year. I love the dart accent. Primo!
