A Perfect Day

Today, after the rains finally stopped for the past three days, was a near perfect day! The sun came out and it was cool and beautiful! Fall is in the air!

Because fall is in the air and we were hosting one of the couple's Bible study fellowships in our home tonight, I got busy and put out alot of my fall decorations! I love the colors of fall and think it's one of the best times of the year.
We ate outside tonight on the deck. The temperature was in the 60's and the moon was shining brightly through the trees. It was a perfect evening! I had candles on each table which I love to have burning while people eat.




The cheesecake was delicious! I made toffee crackers. So easy to make but rich! Paula Deen would have been proud! Have you made them before?




This is my sweet friend, Laura, who is due in November with her second child, a girl named Lia.
She and her husband, Chris, are missionaries who have been in Turkey for several years and will be leaving soon for another country. I don't think I am suppose to say where because of safety issues. We will miss them!

I think everyone had a great time! The food was yummy and the fellowship great!
Tomorrow we head to Little Rock to see the Razorbacks. Go Hogs Go!!

I love all your pretty fall decorations. Were the acorns in the candle holder real? You might have inspired me to update my house. I still have summer americana up. It looked like a great party!

You have such good taste, Judy. Why don't you come to my home and throw some of your pizazz around? Oh, if it were only that easy! Looks like you all had a wonderful time!

I love the centerpiece on your table (the first picture). That is so neat!! I'm wide awake at 2:30 am and thinking I've got to crawl up in the attick and get my decorations down now! The fellowshp looks amazing and how nice that you had so many tables and seating out on your deck.
