Fall Colors and a fun saturday!



Yesterday was just a great Fall Day. It was on the warm side but a nice breeze kept it from being too hot. Daniel and I stayed outside all day decorating and trimming branches. The tree in the picture is in our front yard. Its beautiful but it turned orange quicker than the other trees and its leaves are falling rapidly. I am sure it is because we haven't had much rain at all since June. But it is really pretty. I bought one of the plastic pumpkin bags and stuffed it full of leaves for the yard.
Last year we bought some Halloween spider webs that light up and we hung them on the front porch. Well, my might warrior did the ladder part and most of the work after I assembled them. They blink at night and the plastic spiders have lights in them.



I guess it was a family time as we had our furbabies playing the yard watching us work.
I also have a bunch of plastic skeletons hanging from the trees in the front yard too. I bought them for a dollar at the Dollar Tree Store(my favorite store). They look so cool when the wind is blowing because it looks like they are dancing.

Later in the afternoon Daniel trimmed quite a few tree limbs from a tree close to the road by our driveway. My son came over to spend the night so we got be the lucky ones who dragged the limbs down to the back yard.



It was a great day to be outside and have some fun and work too. Later that night we had a nice bonfire but my camera's batteries were charging so I didn't get pictures of it.
I hope everyone had a fun saturday too!

Looks like you had a fun Saturday. The batteries are charged now, yes? So, you just have to have another bonfire.

That's a lot of leaves! I love that picture of the big tree and all orange underneith. I see Lady is out having fun too!

We had snow falling instead of leaves. Maybe now it will warm up and let the leaves fall off...

The leaves are just starting to turn here, but it really looks like fall there. Love your Halloween decorating and how sweet your hubby is to help you. Mine would never do that.
