Decorating for Halloween and Fall

There is just nothing more fun that pulling out tubs and boxes of decorations! I love to spruce up my home as the seasons change. Fall and Winter are my favorites! I love that I can pull out Fall things starting in September and leave them all up until its time to start decorating for Christmas (which is by far my absolute favorite!).

Last year, with the loss of Caroline, it was very very hard for me to get in the spirit of anything. Most of the decorations that made it up were put up by my MIL so things would seem more ordinary to the boys for the season and not quite so bleak. I just didn't care last year. Taking time to decorate just seemed soo unnecessary considering all that we were going through. This year however, I am back in the mood!! 


Here is a couple of things from one of our downstairs bathrooms. I love the picture in the top picture! It was from Grady's first Halloween!


Our Dining Room decorations. This is the first room you seen when you walk into our home so I tried to make it extra special this year! I can't wait until the next time you see pictures of this room. We are going RED!


Just some fun nick-nacks hanging around the house. The "M" pumpkin I just found at Hobby Lobby last week. I just had to buy it to add to our collection of decorations! I love that I can leave it up for both Halloween and Thanksgiving!


Here is one of Griffin's Halloween outfits. I'm saving it for him to wear to a birthday party we have this weekend!
How do you decorate your home for the Fall Holidays?

Sorry I haven't commented lately. I love your Fall decorations...what a beautiful, warm, loving home. Fall decorations are my absolute favorite and I wish we could keep them up all year long.

Little Griffin is such a handsome little man. I can't believe he's already been here for 3 weeks. Seriously, time...you need to stop!!! I'm so eager for Tristan to get here, but I know once he's here, that time will just fly by, so I'm trying to soak in the rest of this pregnancy.

I'm so happy for you and all the blessings God has given you and your family. :)

Hello,
I came across your blog and was very interested in your design articles. I just had a couple of questions, so if you could e-mail me back that would be great! Thank you for your time.
