my menu was
hot dogs on a roll
carrot sticks
apple slices
and water

I was looking around my house and I was wondering what I could use for my Halloween party. I discovered that i had alot of items with spiders on them. That was my inspiration.

Thought this was adorable. I have these arranged on my mantle

I love my scarecrow family.

Through out the fall I will be showing my decorations for the season. I will be using some that belonged to my sister. This wreath was one of hers. It is very special to use hers as a reminder of how much she also loved this time of year.

I was in one of our stores that has wreaths. I loved the size of this one

Simple summer decor

This is one of my favorite summer foods. It is also a tealight candle holder.

You can't see the garland real well but I have a star garland on my tree.

I fell in love with this pitcher earlier in the year. I have it sitting on the dining room table.

Here are some of my simple ways to decorate

Awesome Bible Study

Last night I went to the women's Bible Study at Church. It was awesome. For six weeks this summer we have been doing a series of videos feauring different speakers.
Last night we heard Anne Thompson talk on her book, Do you think I am beautiful. It was awesome. It really nmade me think. One of the statements she made that really stood out was that Jesus look at us and calls us beutiful. Media tells us tat we have to wear designer clothes, have this car or be this but Jesus take us where we are
What a awesome fact to know that we ARE beutiful in His eyes.

Make it a great dau

Today I am joining with the Daybook

FOR TODAY... from Marge's Daybook
Outside my window I am thinking about how cold it is
I am thankful for... my warm house and family
I am wearing... My bathrobe

I am remembering... the good things from last year
I am going... to the mall
I am currently reading...
I am hoping... for a better year this year

On my mind... job hunting
Noticing that... I am enjoying the quiteness of early morning
From the kitchen...

Around the house... cleaning
From my picture journal...
