This has been a very busy and fun weekend with my son and his family home from Louisiana. Today was my husband's birthday so we celebrated all weekend! Of course I have already told you that my DIL and I went to Homestead Hollow on Friday while my husband and son kept their three girls. My daughter wasn't able to take a day off from school to go with us because it was Homecoming and the parade festivities would be too much to leave with a substitute. On Friday night we all went to the football game. My husband coached football there for 29 years before retiring a few years ago. We saw many former students and friends and enjoyed the victory. On Saturday we had a friend, who is a wonderful photographer, come here and make pictures of all the kids (all six of them). She made pictures outside, in the cotton fields, on the railroad tracks, and in the pastures. I cannot wait to get these and of course, being a proud grandmother, will share some with you.
Now for the table setting....I got the idea from Susie for my dining room table. She posted this several weeks back and I found my placemats and napkins at the thrift store for a very cheap price. I got the pumpkins at the dollar store and the centerpiece is just Indian corn and gourds and pumpkins from the produce stand......very simple.....but very fall!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Your table decor looks beautiful!
Thanks for taking us along to the festival. It looks like you had a great time.
I think you did a great job making that cute little pumpkin head. You could make a whole family with different expressions on their faces.
Have a wonderful week.
