Fall Flowers for the Table

Fall is creeping in! It was 63 degrees when I woke up today - that's nuts - I live in FL and we have Christmases that aren't 63 degrees! So I went grocery shopping today and got a good size pumpkin to carve later in the week, apple cider, wheat - yup wheat for flowers for the table centerpiece, 3 mini pumpkins, and ice cream, because ice cream is always purchased when I go to the grocery store ;) We also painted wooden bats, made haunted bird houses - birds are gonna love that I bet, went for a walk to collect "fall" or in our case "fallen" leaves, because our leaves don't really change colors, and made monster eyes - our version of gods eye kids make with yarn and sticks! We made ours with yarn and chop sticks from Pei Wei - we love Pei Wei! Oh and our family theme (picked by my incredibly creative brother Danny - eyeroll -jk danny) is dead things! It's like a wild card, so many options! We're gonna be mummys, I need to get crack'n on costumes! Leave some "dead things" ideas please! :) I'm sure the Farley family will appreciate them!

I love your fall centrepiece Becky! I think the wheat in the mason jar is a great idea.
I am used to warm Christmas's too of course, the traditional roast dinner is sometimes ridiculous causes its so damn hot!
Hehe, I am loving playing scrabble with you, finding a notification its my turn so sporadically is pretty fun! Total luck that I won that last game, you kicked my butt in the first one! But now, if you are getting help from Eli, I have no hope of winning, kids are so good at that sort of thing!!
Hope your sneezles go away, I reckon you can get hay fever in fall too!

Where is the world did you find wheat? Grant and I love Pei Wei, I wish there was one closer.

thanks Gina! :)

Jessy, I love playing scrabble with you too! Plus I feel like we're getting one over on the phone company by texting through the game ;)

Olivia, Publix!! It's over in the produce section! I forgot to get the cinnamon brooms they have - you know those? They make the whole house smell so good!
And yes the only Pei Wei I know is in S. Tampa - so good!
