Starting to decorate for Christmas...sort of

I am so excited about decorating my house for Christmas.  This will be our first Christmas in this house and I have mentally decorated it in my mind several times over but now I am slowly bringing the two seasons together by decorating the entry way with fall colors.    My pumpkins will hang out a little longer and I plan on bringing the big tree to have in the dining area on Thanksgiving day, with lights only of course.  We are going to have over 20 people over for Thanksgiving and I am so excited to host this year!   I have also been working on another banner and I hope to take a pic and post it tomorrow.   Till then, have a wonderful day!

Bought a new Cricut Cartridge "Pretty Pennants" and I love it!  I got it on sale at Micheal's for $19.99 Gotta love that!  I don't buy very many carts but  when I do, I try to make sure that they are ones that I am really going to use and this one surely fits the bill!  
 I made this Thankful banner with it and I have plans to make so many more!   I love the way that it turned out and I am now thinking of all of the different ones that I can make for Christmas!  Stay tuned for a banner bonanza!  I wish that would have taken a closer shot because it is hard to tell from these pics but, I inked the edges and the orange pennant is scalloped.  I used my Making Memory foam letter stamps for the letters.  I bought them from QVC  eons ago and I was thrilled to pull those bad boys out and dust them off!
Have a great week and I hope to have more to share in the upcoming weeks!

Holy Cow, it's November!

 Just wanted to add a few shots from yesterday.  We had fun carving our pumpkins..I was so proud of Sophia, she carved hers from beginning to end!  It turned out great!
 Here's my little hero...he looked adorable in his Captain America costume!
 Hubby took this picture of the kids while I was at work.  I really didn't get any good images of Sophia.  She couldn't dress up for school so I missed out on seeing her till after work.  She looked adorable though.
Here I am at work as Belle.  I had so much fun.  I sang the song from the movie several times.  I loved playing the part! Wonder what I will be next year!
