It's the most wonderful time of the year!

I LOVE fall.
It's the best season, for sure.
I'm pretty sure it kicks winter, spring, and summer in the hiney.
(How DARE spellcheck tell me that "hiney" is not a word. It is, too!)

Here's how fall is finding its way to our house:

The aspens in our front yard are starting to change!

And so is this tree/bush thing.

The fall wreath is up!
(Yes, I'm one of those people.)

And the table has the appropriate centerpiece.

And Pumpkin candles!
My mother-in-law, Debbie, gave us this one.
So pretty!
I love all things pumpkin.
Pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin spice lattes...
I'd probably eat this candle if I were starving.

Oh! And I bought some candy corn yesterday.
Who would've thought that mixing sugar, corn syrup, honey,
and a bunch of artificial yuckness could turn out to be so yummy?!

And last, but CERTAINLY not least...

I present to you...Jack-O-Lantern!!
(Ignore his "cry for help" face. He's fine.)

Alright, Jack, now you're just being dramatic.

The costume certainly has a slimming effect of him.
Maybe because it's made for dogs half his size?

That's all for now!
I hope you're enjoying fall, too!
