A NIP IS IN THE AIR...IS FALL FINALLY HERE?

I WAS SO HAPPY TO WAKE UP ONE MORNING THIS WEEK AND HAVE TO WEAR A JACKET ON MY MORNING WALK! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE FALL! LEAVES CHANGING, FOOTBALL GAMES, SWEATERS, SOUP AND CHILI IN THE CROCK POT, PICKING OUT PUMPKINS AND COSTUMES FOR TRICK OR TREATING, I LOVE IT ALL.

DON'T GET ME WRONG, I WILL BE THE VERY FIRST WIMP TO COMPLAIN ABOUT THE WEATHER GETTING COLD. I LIKE THE CRISP AIR IN THE FALL, NOT COLD WEATHER. MY HUSBAND TRIED TO MAKE ME A TOUGH MIDWESTERNER YEARS AGO. WE SPENT ONE WINTER IN KANSAS AND IT SNOWED, AND SNOWED, AND SNOWED. I THOUGHT IT WAS BEAUTIFUL THE FIRST TIME OR TWO. AFTER THAT, IT LOST IT'S MAGIC FOR ME. I DID NOT ENJOY THANKSGIVING WHEN IT WAS EIGHT DEGREES BELOW ZERO. WHO CAN PLAY A GAME OF TOUCH FOOTBALL IN THAT WEATHER? NO, I'M A SOUTHERN GIRL THROUGH AND THROUGH. BUT THIS SOUTHERN GIRL IS READY FOR FALL WEATHER TO STAY. AS LONG AS IT STAYS ABOVE 45-50 DEGREES, I WILL BE A HAPPY GIRL.

NOW I MUST BE THINKING OF A GREAT FALL DISPLAY FOR OUR YARD. I LOVE TO DO A LITTLE SOMETHING LIKE SCARECROWS, BALES OF HAY, PUMPKINS AND MUMS...YOU KNOW THE USUAL.

BUT THIS YEAR I'D LIKE TO PEP THINGS UP A LITTLE.
YOU KNOW...
ADD A LITTLE ZING
TO THE STANDARD FALL DECOR.

SO WHAT DO YOU THINK? CLASSY, HUH! I CAN'T WAIT TO GET THE STUFF TOGETHER AND PUT THIS IN THE YARD OF THE HOUSE WE ARE REMODELING...RIGHT NEXT DOOR TO MY DEAR FRIEND KIMMI! SHE WILL LOVE IT AND ALL THE ATTENTION IT WILL BRING TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD! MAYBE I SHOULD JUST PUT IT IN HER YARD INSTEAD...WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Wow Amy....I didn't have my glasses on and I could have sworn that picture was of you with a mask on and Mark, then I put my glasses on and quickly realized, that could NOT be either one of you because you don't have long black hair and that bu** is not near as BIG as Mark's.

LOL...I LOVE YOU NEIGHBOR...and walking buddy in the cool (cold) brisk air!

KIMMI :-)

Oh, c'mon Amy, don't you like your kids tromping around in snow when they trick or treat? We love it here :)
You know I'd have that display up in a minute if you were my neighbor!

I love and miss you,

Oh my gosh, that cracks me up...first display that I have never seen before...who came up with that one, Mark? That is hilarious, and yes, put it next door to Kim or better yet, put it in her yard overnight and surprise her with it...wouldn't that be a hoot. Love it.
