It's Official Now

Autumn has arrived. It was 40 degrees when I kissed the kids goodbye as they ran for the bus this morning! I am just loving this cooler mornings and evenings.
This weekend, inspired by Emily at Not So Idle Hands, the kids and I made these fun pumpkins. They are so use recycled jars (and we have a lot of them), orange tissue paper, Mod Podge and a little green latex paint.
We put tea light candles inside (you could also use the little battery-operated ones). Look how great they look sitting there!

We were going to do some more Halloween decorating this weekend, but the time just seemed to fly by so quickly. We did get the boxes down from the attic, so hopefully we will get it done by next weekend.
My kids are 8 and 10 and really enjoyed this. I think the younger ones could also do this simple craft with a little bit of help. Spooky good fun!
