welcome, fall! & our housewarming

The seasons are changing up here, and it is beautiful!  Today is nice and warm and sunny, and I am just loving it. Every day I wake up it looks a little different.  But, here's today!

We had our housewarming party this past weekend, so I may have went a little overboard decorating for the season.

^^ we need a haybale here, amiright? and a scarecrow!  and an entire corner dedicated to Harry Potter!  I'm working on it!
 
The party was wonderful!  We had so much help from our family & friends.  R built two sets of yard games, and it was actually warm enough to spend some time outside before it got dark & he built a bonfire.  The food was delicious- many thanks to everyone who brought a dish to pass!  I don't have many pictures, because I was having waaay too much fun chatting with everyone and really enjoying the company.  But my mom snapped a few of us opening gifts.

I've really been putting some time into planting for next spring.  So far I have 4 peonies planted and 2 hydrangeas.  I have a bunch of assorted bulbs, lavender, and lilac all shipping soon, and I plan to get everything ready for the snow melt.

Our cat, June, really really really loves chasing leaves as they fall from the trees.  Her new favorite hobby is scratching at the door and meow-ing to let us know how badly she deserves to be let out.  Here she is in her natural habitat- our duvet.  What a nut.
