Fall Happenings

So, i know just what you're probably thinking right about now......a Christmas Tree already?! As you can see, it is indeed a tree, but i'm calling it my Fall Tree for now. I have reaaly had the "itch" to get out the tree early this year so i decided to go ahead and set it up, but decorate it with fall decor. The decor is a little scimpy and not exactly what i would like, but its what i had on hand and it turned out half cute! I think i like the idea of having a fall tree. I'm going to keep my eye on the fall clearance sales for goodies for next year!
This was Chastity's second trip to a Pumpkin patch. So much for a smile for pictures!

Look mommy! I found one!

Mommy's little helper

I decided to let Chastity "help" me wash the dishes today. She did well and i somehow managed to keep myself and the floor fairly dry! I have been putting off letting her get her hands into the kitchen work purely for selfish reasons. It is much easier and quicker to just get the job done and not worry about looking out for a little helper at the same time. I want Chastity to grow up with the mindset that work can be fun and not just a drudgery, so i guess i better start letting her "help" with the chores while its all fun to her!
She was not at all pleased when all the dishes were done and it was time to get down. Needless to say, we had to have a little "talk"!

Fall Festival

This past weekend was the Fall Festival in our small town. Here Andy and Chastity are waiting for the parade!
This clown was so funny! He was definitely having fun.
Chastity loved gathering all of the goodies that were thrown. So cute!

Our "extended" family members; Daisy and Squeek
Andy and Jenny trying their hand at carving a pumpkin. We tried roasting the seeds, but were none of us were inpressed with the results. It was the first time so maybe we did something wrong. Not sure.
The end result! Not bad for the 1st time!

Fall Fun!

Last weekend we took Chastity to Green Meadow Farms. She wasn't so sure about it at first, but quickly warmed up to it. Here are a "few" pictures from our day.

She loved feeding the animals and also playing in their food!

This particular goat seemed to be her favorite. This is the one she spent her time petting.

I was holding my breath for the pony ride, but once they got going she loved it. By this time she was extremely tired and ready for a long nap.

She was sooo cute in the "Pumpkin Patch"! She couldn't make up her mind which one to choose.

Still looking!

The perfect one!

Andy is "rounding " up the chickens! He was having way too much fun at it!

These chairs were my big bargain from this past weekends garage saling! The lady was going to give all them to me for $5.00! When i asked if she had change for a 20 she told me to just take them! Works for me! I have been wanting some chairs just like these. They need some work, but hopefully the end product will be just what i was looking for. Besides, who can beat FREE?!

I also have big plan s for my table; if i ever get around to it! For now i am happy to have a dining room set. One that i didn't have to pay a cent for!

Here are a few pictures of Chastity and her silly grins

Okay, so this looks really gross i know! I was making Banana Bread and she decided i needed some help! Here she is gathering all the peels.
