Well... It's Fall at the Claytons!


This was our yummy dessert tonight! Pumpkin Bread!!!!! I think I could eat the entire loaf by myself.... but I won't! Happy Fall!!! :)
Here is a lil' shout out to my three favorites! There are days when I have this huge knot in my throat when I think about how much I love them. I really never had any idea I could love someone (all three of them) as much as I do. David - you are amazing! I fall more in love with you every single day! Thanks for being my BFF and my baby daddy! ... And Mace and Bear! You will never, ever, ever know how crazy I am about you! My favorite job in the entire world is being your mommy!!!


Look at that hunky daddy reading to my sweet boy.....



And the sassy sister!!!! This pic truly captures her..... hand on hip, eyebrows raised, .... and being a little bossy! I love you Mae-Mae!!!


Ok. Next, I am documenting the fall transformation that has taken place on my front porch...... and hold your breath! Drumroll, please................................


This is my fall wreath that I have used for the last two years and I was thinking that it needed a little sprucing up! So, after I fluffed it and brought it back to life after spending the last 10 months in the attic ..... I got these supplies.......




** I have no idea why this picture is rotated, but I have tried to fix it a gazillion times. Anyway, I bought a cardboard C and 1 piece of festive scrapbook paper. I traced the C onto the scrapbook paper and used the Mod Podge to put it together......




Super close up view.....



And the finished product..... I hot glued at coke tab on the back of the C and used floral wire to attach it to my wreath! :) Love how this little project turned out!




For my second project, I updated my pillow with my HOUSE NUMBER!!!! I found this cute patterned felt for $0.59!!!!! I found a font I liked, enlarged it to really big and used it as my pattern. Then I hot glued on!



TA-DA! The Front Porch.... Fall Style! :) These little touches cost me a total of $2.61! So there ya go, fall has finally arrived at the Clayton house.... and for just a few pennies! :)
