Move over ghouls and goblins .. It's time for some change

Happy November friends!!

Halloween night was much like the month of October,
It went by fast and we had a great time with some friends and family.

The day started like this..


See that ugly man?
That's me ~ dressed up like my boss.
and that lovely lady is my girlfriend who is dressed up like our other awesome boss.

I have known my boss for many years..
I worked for him for a few years before he came to Michael's,
and I have NEVER seen that man laugh so hard!

Big fun!

Halloween night was great,
we walked around with Sally as she trick or treated for the last time,
(another era coming to an end)
 we came home, checked candy, baked a snake and sat around a bonfire with a few friends and family.

Today I got an early start getting things done around the house.

I hate to admit it, but y'all probably know this about me anyway..
I love when it's time to pack the Halloween stuff up...
when the ghouls and witches make way for peaceful pilgrims and fall tranquility.

The fall table is set.

Remember those branches and birds that I hung from the (Halloween) dining room ceiling?

I decided that I wanted to keep the branches..
I removed the crows and replaced them with these great paper leaves that I found at the Dollar Tree.

Speaking of leaves..
This afternoon you could have found me creeping around in my neighbors yards
clipping small branches of these beauties.

The trees are gorgeous right now.

The Thanksgiving tablescape
.... so far.

There is much more work to do
and I am looking forward to giving the house a fresh change.

November is a month to be thankful,  make great comfort meals,  fuzzy socks and flannel sheets,  feel good movies and great books ~
I am ready!

Have a fantastic first week of November!

Great costume! I clean my house today and put away the witches and ghost and got the turkeys out! I'm ready to decorate for Christmas that is my favorite holiday to decorate. Pinterest is giving me lots of ideas. Have a wonderful night!

I am so ready for Thanksgiving too. Great idea to leave the branches up. The table is looking fantastic!
