Two Fall Favorites

Top 2 Favorite Things About Fall
1. The Great Pumpkin House. If you've never heard of the pumpkin house then you're missing out! It's a house that's local to me and every October they carve thousands of pumpkins and display them outside their house. They have themes which range from every state outline to sports team to religious symbols and much more. They also do music/light shows with the pumpkins. It's really a sight to see. I blogged about it last fall here.
2. Fall Foliage. I love seeing the leaves change. I love the vibrant colors and seeing all the different hues of orange and red. Since West Virginia is a mountain state, we've got tons of trees to show off the fall. It's makes the cooler temps more enjoyable and knowing that we're going into the winter months. 

I almost picked baking because because once the fall hits, I bake cookies, brownies and muffins non stop!

I remember you doing a post about the pumpkin house last year! I think that is just so cool! Is the house privately owned?

And I agree with the foliage...the trees get absolutely gorgeous here in Wisconsin!

That is one thing I miss about the great state is the foilage in the fall! I try to make at least one trip down from Morgantown to Mingo County just to see the mountains in October/early November. You are making me homesick today :(

Goodness, that pumpkin house is cool! And like you, I enjoy seeing the trees lit up with natural color. This post inspired me to bring up my fall decorations and put them up! (That and the cooler temperatures we've had here in the north.) :)

I LOVE watching the leaves change. I love that it's by our anniversary and we go up to a city in the mountains and all of the leaves are so pretty. That house is so stinking cool. I've never heard of it before.
