Pranks and the cutest visitors!

My brother Kyle and his family came and visited a couple weeks ago and we had such a good time.  
The kids helped me prank my sister-in-law by putting googly eyes on everything in her fridge.  We also took glow in the dark ones and put them on her bedroom windows and on the soap, shampoo, etc. in her bathrooms.  Ha!  Don't you think all things look cuter with eyes?

We hit up Dairy Queen after a little bit of shopping.
I had gotten some fun colored bubbles to try, but was royally disappointed...  They were colored in the bottles, but once you blew them, you couldn't tell at all.  Notice Tessa's super cute boots!  It was the best shopping purchase of the day.  She kept saying, "I can't stop looking at my boots!"  A girl after my own heart <3
After Tessa ate her blue slushie, she pretended to lick the sidewalk chalk popsicle.  It just happened to match.
I didn't have any pictures of Drake because he went with the men to fill an airplane with seed that flew over some of our ground to plant it.  I'm pretty sure that was a whole lot funner than shopping with the girls!
Aren't they just adorable?!  I will most definitely claim them as my nieces and nephew!...well... most of the time :)  Just kidding!  Love you guys and you need to quit growing up so fast!  It seems like yesterday you were born!  Even though I don't get to see you near as often as I would like, you always make me feel special!  Looking forward to seeing you at Thanksgiving!

It's beginning to look a lot like fall...

One of these days I may surprise you and post more than just once a month!  I made a few things for my fall decor collection this year, but you may recognize a lot of it from last year.

I wrapped a foam wreath in burlap ribbon to start with.  I cut a twig off of a tree and hot glued it inside the wreath.  I made the 4 fabric flowers at the top and added the letters, as well as the banner.  I had found these cute owls at Wal-Mart and knew they needed to find a good home.  They are actually salt & pepper shakers. :)

I found this Indian corn at Hobby Lobby and wasn't sure what I was going to do with it when I got it but it was just so cute!  I am attracted to miniature things for some strange reason...  I put a candle in the middle of my Pampered Chef Trifle bowl and surrounded it with the corn and more twigs.

It is our centerpiece on our kitchen table.

 If you are a long time reader, you may remember when my awesome husband built me these planters last year for my mums.

And of course we have to have hay bales and pumpkins!

I believe my mantel looks pretty much the same as it did last year.  There may be a few differences.

Like this cute owl...

I'm not exactly sure what these dried pumpkin things are, but I do know that if you use a fall smelling oil in them, they are a fantastic addition to any centerpiece.

I made this a few years back, but I love to set it in my kitchen window as a good reminder everyday.

Corn is all harvested now, but we are still waiting for the beans to dry down.

One of my favorite things to do!  I LOVE riding with Jake in the combine, tractor, or whatever.  But I think an air ride seat or a buddy seat would be a good investment for us... 

We hope all of our farmer friends and family have a safe and happy harvest!
