meet petey

so it's time for you all to meet petey. petey pumpkin. he and gabe dressed to match for this picture.

he's rather large. -and he's a bit self-conscious about his weight, so please don't mention it around him.
my family got petey back when i was a little girl. my mom has the pic to prove it. ---me, around 3 years old in a witch outfit standing next to petey, all grins and giggles. my parents endowed petey to us last year for halloween so our family could enjoy the season with him. our sons sure love him.

we won petey pumpkin when i was little. there was a raffle at a local hallmark store and my parents knew the owners. i think the drawing was rigged, and that's how we ended up with him.

i have decorated a bit more this year for fall. i bought some cute plastic acorns that are displayed in a crystal dish on this table. you can't tell very well from the pic, but they are cute. i also bought a bag of pinecones, acorns, cinnamon sticks, and leaves and placed them all in a big vase to display them as our centerpiece. i am not exactly a crafty gal, so this is a big step for me. -be impressed. be very impressed.

my favorite thing we've done so far to decorate for fall is that i had the boys do some of the decorations. we took down frames that we use year round for family pics and replaced the pics with some drawings and collages they made. they make me happy.
are you guys decorating yet?

happy fall y'all!
