Happy Fall Y'all

It's officially fall at the Trailerhood!

This weekend was a great weekend. We finally had some fall like weather, I was able to "Take Back the Trailerhood" and we even had some time left over for some decorating and baking.

Okay, truth be told, the decorations have actually been up since last weekend, but you just couldn't see them for all the mess (that, and putting up fall decorations in last weekend's mid-eighties temperatures just wasn't right).

We decided to forgo the scarecrow this year after all she had to go through last year.

We have many more fall decorations inside, but you saw most of them last year. So instead I'll just show you the cute little banner that I made. I couldn't find a great place to hang it, but this will do.

Saturday evening, we headed to my bestie and her hubby's house for dinner. The Little Lady and I made an assortment of Halloween goodies to take for dessert.

Rice Crispy Treats with Candy Corn, Chocolate Dipped Pretzels and Halloween Whoopie Pies.

The Little Lady got to bust out her Dora Halloween shirt for the first time. Pretty cute!

Over the weekend, the Little Lady discovered a love for marshmallows and candy corn. I gave her one of each at one point during the weekend and she spent the rest of the weekend begging for more. We saw a lot of this "Mama, I want more candy" face this weekend.

And finally, it isn't fall without some sort of pumpkin baked good, right?!? I've been craving something pumpkin, so opted to try this Pumpkin Pie Bar recipe.

I think they turned out really yummy! They taste a lot like pumpkin pie, but I just might like this crust a little better. John Wayne went to the card party at Wild Horse tonight and I sent all but a couple with him, otherwise, I'd eventually eat the whole pan!

With John Wayne at the card party, the Little Lady and I are snuggled up on the couch watching Spooky Buddies and enjoying some Pumpkin Pie Bars, relishing in the fact that it's fall!
