It's been special spending two seasons in the new house. Summer was a big adjustment since we were still unpacking. Fall has been wonderful because we feel settled and at home. In our old house, I was never one to change out decor for the seasons except for Christmas. The new house has me inspired to change with the seasons. Below are photos taken during the months of September, October, and November with fall decor around the house. You can see that items changed slightly as I added things, moved things, and tried to find the perfect spot for pumpkins, leaves, and all things fall.
This one doesn't look particularly fall-ish but I wanted a photo of my chalkboard pantry door before I changed what was on it for Christmas.
The kitchen towels reminded me of my grandma, so I had to add them to the kitchen.
Here are a few photos from his party this weekend. We had it at the new house and in our backyard. It was fun and exhausting to have a house full of boys. We made a lot of good memories.
Two years ago we had a party at the land but it was so different then. We did a scavenger hunt at that party, but the kids are older now so I couldn't repeat the same thing. I made up clues and hid them in balloons. They had to find the clue, pop the balloon, and read it to find out where to go next. The clues were hidden all over the land.
Here is Will reading clue #1.
The scavenger hunt ended with everyone getting a headlamp, which came in handy because it was getting dark.
We are a sweaty mess, but we had a blast celebrating our big boy turning 10.
