One of the many joys that I have of being the Pastor's Wife is that I get to decorate the church. I love it! My husband likes to keep things new and fresh and prefers for decorations to be changed up every other month or so. Fine by me!
This year I decided to get everything out from the back and just try to use what we have. I think it worked out very well! I love all the sunflowers and pumpkins and how it all came together.
Then, it was time to decorate my home for Fall. This really is my favorite time of year and whenever I get out the fall decos the excitement just builds for the fun ahead!
This year we decided to change up our Thankful Tree a little. We usually cut out a tree from some sort of paper and write what we are thankful for on paper leaves and tape them to the tree. Well, this year I was pintrest inspired to create an actual tree. I had the kids go through the yard and pick up long, scraggly sticks. Not a problem in our yard, that's for sure! Then, I borrowed a bucket of my husband's corn that he buys for the deer feeder. (I still don't think he has realzied that he's missing a bucket full! ;o) We decided to add the lights for some pretty ambience. And now we are working at filling up the tree with things that we are thankful for. We really do have so much that we are blessed with, don't we?
This is absolutely my favorite time of year! The weather is turning cooler, the food is amazing, we are thinking ahead to Christmas, the colors are beautiful.....I just love it!
