Deck the Halls with Boughs of Colored Leaves Fa- la la la la la

Getting the house ready for fall. Inside and out. We made the annual scarecrow to welcome the folks to the Stokes'. He's a cutey!
I had to put in my favorite fall pic of Kel. We won this huge pumpkin at Walmart by guessing the weight.
Jordan beautifying the yard for us.
Well we started off with a bowl of chili and candy corn for dessert.
Josh, Blake and Kel lovin the Chili.
We needed to decorate the ledge, so Blake volunteered. He's such a good sport!
Wow!! Out with the old and in with the new.
Blake is taking his responsibility seriously. Busy little decorators.
Lookin good!
So much stuff!
Matt had to get in on the ledge action.
The final masterpiece.
