tree love

  Can a tree make you happy? 

Looking at this in my backyard sure does!  All of our main rooms face the back of the house and consequently I see this tree when I look out the window.  I am a tree lover!  If I had my way (and the money) my whole backyard would be planted with different species of trees with several of my most favorites; pine trees.  We have a huge yard and little to none landscaping budget.  So this lonely maple tree will have to do for now, which I don't mind!

We had a fun weekend of picking out pumpkins at a local produce/tree farm.  It was unexpected in what this farm offered just outside our little city.  They had a hay ride, bounce house, and all the fall/Halloween decor for kids.  We even had our first carmel apple!  It was mighty delicious!

The past years I have sort-of dictated what they were going to be for Halloween.  I know it's's just this thing I do, I want them to all coordinate.  According to my oldest they have all had a "theme". 

This year I have turned over a new leaf (it's a costume for heaven sakes!)....THEY picked out their costumes.  As we shopped, the costumes ranged between $9.99 to $74.99.  Yikes!  Of course I steered away from the most expensive, but surprisingly they all picked reasonable ones. 

After they choose what they wanted, let me announce to you.....we have a "theme"!  Yeah!  And I didn't even plan it!  They are going as a devil, vampire and a skeleton.  All classic SCARY costumes! 

I like it when it all comes together!

Thanks for stopping.

Bye for now!
