Have yourself a red and blue Christmas

If you haven’t noticed by now, my FAVORITE color is blue–aqua, turquoise, teal, you name it I love it. I will find a way to sneak it into any holiday. So if you didn’t know that, you know now. With that being said, you can now prepare yourself for my untraditional Christmas decorations. You may notice some of Avery’s favorite color, purple.

Autumn decor

Our weekend off was rainy and cold so we spend our time indoors. Kind of a bummer, but we enjoyed time with family on Friday evening and brought Avery to the movies on Saturday.  We will have to reschedule our trip to the apple orchard for a non-rainy day! Being stuck inside allowed for some autumn decorating and craft projects. I love to have fall scented candles lit in the house this time of year. There’s something about the smell of pumpkin spice!

Last night I helped Avery do a craft. It was a win win situation because he had fun fingerprinting with different colors and I got a new seasonal canvas!
