Haven't Posted in a While

I've been kind of out of it the past week or so since my last post. Headaches mostly and being tired or getting housework caught up.

Tomorrow is my husband's birthday so I baked him a pineapple upside down cake this morning since I know we're going to be busy tomorrow while he's off work and I wouldn't have time to bake it since we've got to get my stepson off to school, drop daughter off with the grandparents and then go to Wal-Mart, then hit the grocery on the way back home, getting back here in time for stepson to get home from school and then going back to grandparents for a cookout I believe.

I have also been thinking about my Autumn decorations and I did share them on my myspace blog, but hadn't posted any here. I had some spooky lights, but they were over ten years old and started overheating, so I had to toss them. I did get a picture of them though before I had to take them down. They were melting the plastic covers.

My hubby got me some purple lights but they are so dark they don't show up in pictures or I would post a picture of them.

I do have my front door decoration though that my mom made for me, pictured below. Next to it is a basket flower arrangement I made with some craft things my mom gave me.

I have a fiberoptic Jack O' Lantern too and though the picture is a bit blurry, I have included it as well. Hope you have a Great Day!

Taryn, that cake looks delicious! I luuuuve pineapple upside down cake! :o)

We don't do much for Halloween anymore since my youngest is all grown up. Although, hubby did bring home a pumpkin a couple of weeks ago. He didn't even carve a face into it, just sat it atop a pedastal out front of the house. The sad thing is, the pedastal did have a bird bath with a nice little angel statue atop it--until the cat leaped into it, toppled it and broke the birdbath part. Now it's just a pedastal with a big ole orange pumpkin sitting on top. :o)

Have a great weekend!

Oh wow. Love the decorations. We used to really celebrate Halloween but we've gotten out of the habit. But it's a fun time of year.
