I Love Fall!

Scroll down if you are looking for THANKSGIVING!

I grew up in the Arizona desert, where what few leaves change color MIGHT be changed by Thanksgiving, and the weather was MAYBE cool by then. Now I live in Payson, AZ. Payson is in the mountains and has 4 SEASONS! I can't wait for Fall, when the nights start to cool off.

By October there are usually glorious yellow and red leaves all over town. And Halloween! I LOVE Halloween! Here are my pages with great Halloween graphics and a few Halloween poems. Yes, we're a Christian family, and yes, we have fun with Halloween. If you think that's a contradiction, Here is my point of view on Halloween. We used to plan a party for my sons and their friends. They are all grown now, but we sure had fun with the parties for a few years! Here are some ideas from our parties, including some really gruesome food- guaranteed to appeal to boys.

Then in November comes Thanksgiving- my favorite holiday. I think Thanksgiving is the best Holiday of the year. It's not as commercial as Christmas sometimes can be, and it centers around Family. It also emphasizes giving thanks and counting your blessings. I want to have a year-round Thankful Heart.

Here is a link to one of my favorite poems, one that evokes Fall for me.

And here is a link to my illustrated version of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, by Washington Irving, featuring the Headless Horseman.

Here is my Halloween page.

The other graphics are from compilation sites, which say they "collected them". If you own any of these please E-mail me and I will give you credit or remove it, as you wish.
