Happy Fall Ya'll!!

Tuesday night Zack, Zayde and I went to a little pumpkin patch in Tontitown (off of Hwy 412.) It was so much fun watching Zayde run around laughing and trying to pick up pumpkins. He had an absolute blast! We are loving this stage that he is in and are so blessed!

He was so precious trying to pick up all the pumpkins...

"This one, Mama!"



"I got it!"



"I really, really want this big pumpkin. I know I can pick it up- if only it wasn't quite so heavy!"

Zayde even made a new friend... He was giving it hugs and kisses- so cute!


Smile!!


He enjoyed carrying the hay around and throwing it up in the air, saying, "Whoa!!"


Our blessed family...


They had these neat cut out characters. Zayde thought it was soooo funny to stick his head through them.


The sweetest pumpkin of them all... Zayde!


When we got home, we started decorating the front yard...

Zayde was such a good help for his Daddy!
"Oh Yeah, look at me- I'm such a big boy."


"We're almost there, Daddy."


"Ok, what do we do now?"


Our "Fall Decorated" yard...







Of course, I had to decorate inside, too. Last year I hit the Hobby Lobby end-of-the-season 88% off sale. So, this is the first year I have decorated for fall. It was so much fun!





I have heard so many people talk about all of the fall changes- in the literal and spiritual sense. My prayer this fall is that I will not hinder God in any way to change, mold and shape me in order to help me grow to become the Christian woman He desires!

Fall Blessings to you all!

You are so crafty Amy. I love all of your decorations in the yard and in the house. Your Zayde is so cute and your family picture is just precious. I took the girls to our local orchard and let them pick out their own pumpkins yesterday they had a lot of fun.

What cute picts you captured at the pumpkin patch! I especially loved the family one and then the one of Zayde in the middle of all the pumpkins.. fun ones to frame for fall! Your yard looks great. I think this is my favorite season, so bringing out the fall decor always adds a touch of fun!

Cute! I love pictures of kids at pumpkin patches. One of my favorite pictures of Hayden is when he was one year old and in a pumpkin patch. I LOVE your yard and all of your decorations. I'm itching to do all that, too. Thanks for the inspiration!

So pretty! I have my inside decorated, but still working on getting the outside. I am always worried with MD weather a hot streak could hit and rot the pumpkins before their time!

I loved these pictures of Zayde!! He looked so grown up though in that hat!! I loved one of the last ones; the close up with the pumpkins.

Your Fall decor is so adorable; inside and outside! I love it. It is one of my favorite times to decorate.
