Front door decor

Ever since we moved into the new house, I have been a little meh about holiday decorations. Our new place is very minimalist (in theory - not to say it isn't a cluttered mess most days), and we don't have a lot of shelf spaces, etc. to display decorations.

The front door, however, is always a likely candidate for a bit of holiday cheer. This year we have a few pumpkins with drawn faces (the pumpkin "ghost" was made by stacking two small gourds connected with wooden skewers. Judging by his yellowish hue, not sure he'll make it all the way until Halloween).

I also wrapped a Styrofoam wreath with yarn and added a glittered web I bought for this party years ago. I think I am going to use this wreath for Thanksgiving and Christmas as well (minus the spider, naturally).

Here are a couple of pics from our trip to the pumpkin patch. It is a city patch, but us local folks are inclined to think it is the best around in terms of activities and the general layout. We could have just put Hank on the choo choo for the whole evening. That was his favorite part.

Favorite of the day: Now I am considering making these treats as well -- mmm...
