The Last Days of Autumn...

As we are getting ready for Thanksgiving next week, I wanted to share some Autumn photos from around the property before we get into Christmas decorating! 

You know how much I love this little guest house:-)

The children actually took all these photos of each other. I think I have some photographers for sure, lol!

Maybe Cristian is thinking about Christmas?

They are the absolute joy of my life these children, and I am so thankful for them:-)

Thanks for stopping by everyone! Thanks to all of you who entered the giveaway last week. I'll be hosting 3 more giveaways so stay tuned. 

Here is a little preview of my Thanksgiving setting using the box again but not the same as last year. Can't wait to get the table set! 


I'll be joining:

Wow Us Wednesdays
Inspiration Friday
Feathered Nest Friday


  1. Anita, Love this post, God Bless your beautiful family, growing up so fast! Your homestead is breathtaking. Thank you for sharing and you answered my thoughts about starting to decorate for Christmas, hugs and hope you are good.

  2. Oh Anita, your children are so beautiful and quite the creative photographers.
    Love your home and property. And your guest house is simply adorable! Can't wait to see what you do with it one day.

  3. Anita, your children are just adorable! You must be so proud of them. I love the fall foliage around your home and your table centerpiece is stunning. I have already decorated for Christmas but the tree won't be put up for a couple of more weeks. Blessings to you. Pamela
