Happy Monday! It seems like the weekend went WAY too fast. They always do, but this one seemed especially fast. Like Katie mentioned on Friday, we all went to a fall festival on Saturday. We picked raspberries, fed goats, Matea rode a pony, we shot an apple cannon and picked some pumpkins. It was a great day!
It was a little cold and super windy so we busted out the mittens and hats. I was stoked.
Katie went IN a pumpkin patch for the very first time so SHE was stoked.
We bundled up the little kids in the stroller. Would you guess these two are a year apart?? Fun fact – Adlee is only 5 inches taller than Elias.
So clearly from these pictures you can tell it is officially fall in Minnesota. And for that we are thankful. It’s been a brutal summer. 90s and humidity do not agree with us.
Katie and I both bought some pumpkins and gourds to begin our fall decorating. Neither one of us really decorates for fall but maybe this year that will change. Probably not, but one can always dream, right? Here are some of our inspiration pieces for the year. We’ll let you know if any of them actually make it into our house. Right now our fall decorating consists of a pumpkin and 3 gourds in a cluster on our dining room tables. Whoop.
We love the idea of painting pumpkins. I think doing a state could be really difficult but you could probably stencil on numbers easy enough. I think Katie should do this one for sure.
We also both love decorating with leaves. One year Katie framed a bunch of leaves to decorate for fall. I loved it. Maybe she should do that again and blog about it.
We also both really love using branches to decorate. Cheap, simple and easy. One year I made leaves out of paper and glued them onto branches. It was one of my most favorite decorations ever.
This would be fun to do for a dinner party or possibly Thanksgiving? The cluster of pumpkins and candles are fun.
So what about you? Are you a fall decorater? Or do you just skip over fall decorating and go straight to CHRISTMAS like us?
