Fall Recap.....

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my blogger friends! It's been an extremely busy Fall season and I should have been posting all, here is a RECAP post. :)
I love to decorate with the funky colored pumpkins, the bumpy pumpkins, the pumpkins with the curly stems, and mums...lots of mums. So here are some pictures from around the outside of my home and the beauties I picked out this year! :)

Another favorite Fall tradition is the Pumpkin Patch! We had a great time at Bandy's with our kids!

Jillian sitting on the pumpkins.

Me & Josh in the corn maze.
After we picked out our pumpkins it was time to carve out a Jack O' Lantern.
Sophi with our "Jack"

Trick or Treating was a great night! We dressed our lil goblins up like Batman & Robin....but with girly flare!!! We had tutus and matching hair bows and bags!!! Oh, and TONS of glitter!! We are STILL finding some in the Jeep!

Jillian as Robin.
Sophi as Batman.
And we can't forget Football Homecoming....

Decorations around the house......

Also we had my daughter's 16th birthday party!!!!! It was a surprise party at THE ANNEX in Herrin, IL. It's an old movie theatre they have redone into an Italian Eatery! She is very much into the OLD HOLLYWOOD THEME (especially since her small role in a film this past Summer). Here are pics from her party.....
