Visit to a Pumpkin Farm


Autumn brings all kinds of great things to do.  




One of the best is visiting a pumpkin patch.  Even better is a pumpkin farm!


We have been visiting loved ones, bigs and littles, in Colorado!


One of our excursions was to a real, full-scale pumpkin operation called Anderson Farm.


There are tons of things for kids to do there.

The gigantic pumpkin on top of the silo greets visitors.

More challenging fun can be found by going through the corn maze.


We'll have more on Anderson Farm another day!
 
HAVE YOU BEEN TO A PUMPKIN FARM LATELY?

Counting Our Blessings


"WHOOO" is grateful that autumn is here?

This little decorative owl is!

He was given by a dear friend who is always thinking of others.

All anyone has to do is look around on these lingering days of autumn to realize what immense blessings we have been given.

Flowers, in all seasons, are gifts to our senses.  Autumn's flowers are quite exquisite.


They delight since one knows that soon the harshest season of all will be upon us and flowers will not grow in the frozen earth.


So each sign of loveliness, each bright spot in the day, is something for which to give thanks.

Even coming across this heart-shaped stone evoked a feeling of gratitude. It was such a gift from nature.

 
LOOK AROUND YOU RIGHT NOW AND SHARE ONE THING FOR WHICH YOU ARE THANKFUL.

Breakfast with Guests


One of the best parts of having a home of one's own is hosting meals for guests.

It's fun picking out tablecloths, decor, and, of course, preparing the food.

Having a fruit tray is always successful.



One of my sister's brought over some luscious tassies.  

They are like little pecan pies.  Yummy.

An old-fashioned punch bowl, filled with faux roses and tiny lights
adorned the table, too.

Of course,  a mix of people we love at the table is best of all.

DO YOU ENJOY ENTERTAINING?
