I always love decorating our home for fall. Maybe it is because we have orange siding so it just fits so well with the season and our surroundings.

When my daughters birthday was getting near I made the mistake of introducing her to Pinterest. I know crazy idea right, what almost 5 year old needs to know how to use Pinterest?
