Seeing Orange

There’s lots of orange this time of year around my house. It’s that time of year and I love Halloween!

When I was growing up, my dad always carved a Jack-o-lantern the night before Halloween. My husband and I carried on this tradition with our sons and we always had a lot of fun. When the boys got older, they used the Master Pumpkin Carver patterns but as for me, I prefer the old-fashioned Jack-o-lanterns with the triangle eyes!

It’s so much fun to get all dressed up! Getting ready to go Trick-or-treating! Ages 5 and 2.

Happy children enjoying a family tradition

Our family has always decorated for Halloween.  My kids are grown, but still, I decorate.

These two guys have adorned our front porch for many years on Halloween.  Somehow, they got the nicknames Beavis and Butthead and we still call them that to this day.

Another family tradition we enjoyed in the fall was taking a hayride to a pumpkin patch.

I love this fruit salad with lots of orange.

There’s nothing like sitting by the fire pit watching the orange flames on a cool fall night.
