45 days and counting…

I'm excited about fall this year for some reason! Summer has always been my favorite but the past couple of years fall has taken the candle for my favorite!:

I am so ready to start decorating for Halloween. My youngest son, living at home while he attends college, has informed me that if I start decorating for Halloween too early he’s moving out.

 Gosh I’m going to miss that kid. 

So it will be a few days before the harvest and Halloween make their appearance at McMurtry Manor; but not wanting to leave you hanging, here are a few of favorite blasts from the past.
