Bye Bye Autumn, Hello Winter!



Bye Bye Autumn, Hello Winter!
It was warm yesterday, almost 60 degrees! We were vacillating about when to put up the outdoor holiday lights, and with a very cold week next week Dave decided it was a good day. The temps this next week are supposed to be in the 20's at night, 30's during the day. The temp is dropping already and it's 12:30! Cold gray skies, I think winter is here! We have a little snow in the forecast, we'll see how much we get. Coop is winterized, garden is put to bed. Dave mowed and raked Friday. I'm putting away my Autumn/Thanksgiving decor today, tossing the pumpkins. I may roast some for the hens. I washed our winter hats, gloves and added snow scrapers and a blanket to each car. We're ready! Our flannel sheets and thick quilt is on our bed, nice and cozy.

We had a blast here with our family potluck for Thanksgiving. My Grandson River was here and eating his first meal in front of us! He just started on homemade, organic baby food recently and he loves it!

What a big boy!

Yum yum sweet potatoes!

I went to Jo Ann's fabrics today to replace some buttons and found these 2 fun items, both to go over my dining table-

A fun snowman, $10.00, I really like it!


Snowflake, about 16" wide, $2.00, I will paint with chalk paint

I may get out a few generic winter things today if time allows. Advent starts today, so I may get that set up if I can find it. My hubby was raised Catholic and he like to celebrate that. So, happy winter!

Love to see your decorating pictures, as always. I saw the same sign at JoAnn's and really debated bringing it home . . . but some fabric won the $$ game.

River is growing so fast! He's such a cutie and bless his parents for starting him out right with homemade, organic baby food. He's a lucky little boy.

It is no surprise that parents who name their child River (LOVE it) would take such exceptional care of him. I bet your house is so warm and cheerful, with all your wonderful decorating skills!

We got snow here. This will be my first winter since moving to Utah from California. I haven't experienced a true winter in 1o years.
