Colorful Gratitude

I know I am a few weeks early to be doing a post on gratitude, but every time I go outside I am grateful. Grateful for changing seasons.

I am grateful to have a yard alive with color (this bush really is that red).
I am grateful for trees, always grateful for trees.

Leaves too.

I am grateful for mums. No explanation necessary.

I am grateful for the bounty of the season - pumpkins included.
I am grateful for the good times had while searching for "Jack".
I am grateful the weather has been nice and my kids haven’t been stuck inside with cabin fever. Instead, they have been busy playing in the mud.

Burying each other in piles of leaves (one of my hooligans is hiding in this picture).
And busy making witches brew. They can do this for hours. Love the rotten apple & plums - very nice touch. Anything that can capture their attention for long periods of time makes me especially grateful.

Funny thing: Scott and Cherie's kids were making their own concoctions this weekend, which mostly consisted of water, assorted pieces of candy (nerds, whoppers, snickers), and crumbs of muffins. And they wanted us to drink it! Then after you pretend to take a sip, you get to find out if it was poisonous or not.

I love your pictures!

GORGEOUS pictures! Thanks for sharing such beautiful things in your neck of the woods. I love Florida but we have intermitent glimpses of fall. I love to see it in other places.

And what a beautiful fall it's been! You can't help but be grateful for the colors right on your own doorstep. And grateful for children who enjoy the fall as much as you do : )
