Bucks and Cowboys and Pumpkins ~

Last year I wrote about Halloween here but this year it's all about fall...pumpkins, deer hunting and football, baby!!

Don started the hunting season off perfect!! During the first hour of the new season he shot a 9-point buck. Important, he did it in one shot only!!

Shooting the buck is only one objective of deer hunting, the other is telling all your buddies all about it. Some people are more fun to tell than others, like Zack. He so appreciates a good story, and he can tell a good one too.
Football rules. Really. You know...the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat. The Saints fans are fervent. We're not big on New Orleans, or LSU, but hey, good luck to them. We've been concentrating on Cowboys. ;)

We went to watch McNeese play 2 weeks ago and it was a heartbreaker...such an effort, just to come up short. This week is another big game and we can't wait. As for the other Cowboys....I am forever and will always be a DALLAS COWBOYS fan!! Big D runs deep in my blood, and yes, Tom Landry is god. Bob Lily, Roger Staubach, Tony Dorsett, Emmitt Smith, Troy Aikman...all revered names in this house.

I know that Thanksgiving Day (Cowboys vs. Saints) will be awesome!!! Don't miss the halftime show...Keith is performing. O happy day!! ;)

In other doings, my sister came to visit and we girls had a fun weekend. We went to eat, to a craft show, to a movie, and even saw our brother. It was beautiful weather too.

We hope the fine, fair, fall days will return soon. And speaking of our littlest pumpkin turns 5 years old! Happy Birthday Kirra!! We love you!! ♥

And finally, here's a few pumpkins from our house. I painted this one and added a little mod podge.

These are just cuties that I put on our table. They make me happy!!

I did a metallic glaze wash to this one. Trying to decide if I should follow suit and glaze a bigger one I'm putting by the front door.

~ Happy Fall ~

Ooooooh, love the glaze wash. That is beautiful. They look so pretty. You may have inspired me to get my decorations out today. Should I even bother with Halloween since we only have 5 more days! Terrible this year!! No one has mentioned it though. So maybe I am the only one who cares.

So much fun! You go all out for fall! That is great! Glad you are having such a great autumn season. As for us, it's snowed here the past two days...guess fall is officially over! :(

Thank you so much for your kind words on my blog. I am sorry that it has taken me a while to get back to you. This move has just about done me in. Hoping that I get settled fast and get back to visiting all my friends. Have a good week.
