...way-super-not-even-exaggerating late on this post by night!

So as I have always been open about this...I'm a huge dork. A huge dork that gets super totally into the holidays and doesn't let and Scrooge get in my way! And when I say holidays I mean mid-August I am already getting out fall decorations to start the season and the decorating keeps going til Easter New Years. I was so EXCITED to show you my Halloween decorations, but sadly my computer got sick mid-October and I wasn't able to get her fixed until now (mostly because of a TON of procrastination on my part).


I wanted to share with you all some of the cute fun stuff we had around here for Fall (I'm posting this as inches of snow fall outside, but whatever)! Anyone that saw our house thought I was a second grade teacher and that's why our house was decorated with construction paper everywhere. I don't know if I should have been embarrassed or taken it as a compliment...but who cares.

So first I made a spoooky tree (remember this was supposed to be done during fall)

It was super easy to do once I had the base established. I cut out a bunch of leaves and thin brown strips and taped them e.ve.ry.where.

Then I put a cute pile of apples at the base.

...cause I'm cute like that. And I put a big sleepy owl in the branches.

I apologize again for the crummy pictures. I am hoping Santa brings a camera down that chimney for me! But isn't he so dang cauute!

In fact, he was so cute I made another one.

He's a little cock-eyed, but that's ok! He sat in this window.

Then I made Frankenstein and Franenstein

I crack myself up. I added some school stuff (again cause at the time it was Fall)

Then I made some funky spideys!

One creepy...and one cute.

Stay with me people. I'm almost done. I know everyone is dying to see Christmas right now. I promise my next post is jammed packed with Christmas!!

Here was the front door. And at the bottom of the door is my favorite thing I did!

I can't stand how hilarious I am. Right? Everyone else is laughing at this too, right? Well I know I am! And Scrooge on you if you aren't! I am glad Fall is over though, cause CHRISTMAS IS NEXT!! Yes, I'm shouting it!
I hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving with their families and friends!! I know I had several moments where I thought how thankful I am for the amazing life we have. I thank God everyday for how blessed we are.
So are you ready for Christmas decorating yet? Do you already have your car radio tuned to the station that plays Christmas music 24/7 like me?! Did anyone go ape crazy on Black Friday? Who was out the longest? My sister was gone 14 hours! Who can beat that?! I know I was a bum. Maybe some year I'll try it, but for now I prefer sleeping in! 26 more days!!
