...more fall things and the Hemophilia Walk

...these golden yellow mums brighten a spot in our garden,

and I've added a few more pumpkins here and there around the house.

This ceramic black cat and pumpkin sit on the back porch. It was given to me by my mother years ago and I bring it out every year. The pumpkin lights up and so do the cat's eyes.

Not only are the mums beautiful, but my red geraniums are putting on a show right now.


We had a great day at the NC Hemophilia Walk 2010 on Saturday.

I forgot to take my camera, but here are a few photos that my brother-in-law took.

A family get-together after the walk.

Our team was named Elmer's Art Walkers (after my Dad, the artist).

It was the perfect day for the walk, 72 degrees, absolutely gorgeous. There were a lot of walkers, fun activities, music and food. As of Saturday morning we had raised over $52,000.00.

We spent the rest of the day with my oldest daughter and granddaughter. The house was all decorated for Halloween, and I wanted to show you how cute it looked, and we enjoyed making a "garbage bag spider" with our granddaughter.

We enjoyed sitting around a nice fire ~ perfect for a fall day.

Hope you enjoyed your weekend!
