Before I show you my Christmas decorations and such, I feel compelled to have a prequel of sorts and show you my Thanksgiving decor... I almost added pictures of my Halloween stuff (since I totally forgot to post those pics back in October), but I realized that maybe the moment had passed and plus, I forgot to take a picture of my cutest stuff... so, 'til next year!
My favorite Thanksgiving decoration EVER is this handprint turkey that Luke made during Sunday School. It was his first "art" to bring home and it made me want to cry. It was on a giant piece of construction paper, so I cut it out, matted it and then decorated a frame to put it in. I packed it up with the rest of my Fall/Thanksgiving stuff and I think that it'll be fun to get out each November:

Yes, those are metallic pumpkins on my hearth... I'll explain in a second.
We didn't end up carving our pumpkins this year, and so after the 31st I had 3 perfectly good pumpkins left... so I decided to spray paint them this metallic "caramel latte" color and bring them inside. My dad made fun of them relentlessly, but I kind of grew to love my unconventional gourds :)
