My Fall Decorations

I finally decided to put a few of my fall decorations out. I told my girls I wasn't going to do anything, I just haven't been in the mood. But when the weather cooled and it felt like fall, I had Mr. Sweet Pea drag a few things out.

This is Mr. Scarecrow. We'll call him Herman.

This was an old tool box I found in a shed and I turned it upright and made a shelf out of it. I was kind of proud!

These are my beautiful Petunias on my porch that I'm going to enjoy until the frost.

My youngest daughter, Molly, wanted Mr. Pumpkin out even though she is 18 and I didn't think she would care, she likes me to put out all the things I've had since she was little.

This post is a family affair since my daughter Ashley is helping me put up pictures. It is pitiful that I don't know how to do this yet. My girls call me a "technophobe" but I get by alright, thank you. I used to be the queen of speed typing when they were younger, and of  course now that they are grown they can type circles around me. I am pretty much turtle speed compared to them.

Anyways, it is good to have someone around that can teach you. After raising four daughters I'm surprised I have any sense at all!
