Pumpkin Pickin- White Trash Style

This is what you call a White Trash Pumpkin Patch, AKA Kroger Grocery store. Notice the price, a low 3.88! Hard to compete with spending 40 bucks at the unnamed pumpkin patch!

Our patch's store front

WOW- look at all the pumpkins to choose from(which does cut the p picking time in half!)
Cute pic in our front yard instead of the hayride picture, but they are still smiling!

So the tough economy has hit our house this year. The budget is tightning and I am trying my best to keep the spending down. So in an effort to save, this is what our pumpkin patch looked like this year! Pretty sad, Chloe almost didn't go at all but we did get pumpkins, carved them and they will show the same on the porch as ones from the ****** patch down the road that now charges parking per PERSON and A LOT for a pumpkin! So all in all, I am feeling O.K. And Just thankful for all we do have!

It's Fall Y'all

Well, I was without my Internet for almost two weeks and I seriously thought I might not make it. But I did and I am still trying to catch up!
So, this is what has been going on- we started back to school for a second time after 8 days off thanks to Ike. Chloe is doing great in school and getting ready to tryout for soccer at school. Cole is finding 1st grade a lot more work but is hanging in there. He just started wrestling, on purpose, and is loving it. Mallory is enjoying pre-school and making new friends. And Mia, she is growing up a little everyday and is so darn cute!
I have been decorating for fall and talked some crafty friends into using our skills for good- more crafts! Each one of us "sponsoring" two crafts, getting all the supplies and teaching the craft. So far we have two awesome pieces and four more to go.
Me and some friends took a trip to Canton, a little town with a huge flea market and craft expo! LOVED IT! I got a great dresser for the girls room. Dana is not too impressed b/c he said it is a piece of crap. But I love it, so thanks honey!
So I am back to the blog world and couldn't be happier!

I did not love the advance painting on this craft but I love the polka dots!
Paper Mache pumpkin- so cute! I love him.
Melissa and all her goods from Canton.
My dresser find from Canton, good for me, bad for my hubby!
Entry table for all the fall decor, did I mention orange is my favorite color?
