Autumn is in the Air

My family and I had such a glorious Thanksgiving Day weekend. My husband had four days off in a row, he has not had that much time off since Spring of 2011, so I was so thankful that he received that much needed down time. Thursday, we had our traditional turkey dinner, with just our little family of four, but we had a great time nonetheless. Friday, we packed (we are moving early next month.) Saturday, the kids and I went to see The Guardians movie, pretty cute. I also spent the morning watching them jump in leaves, they were so adorable and just had so much joy doing something so simple. Sunday, I went to Archiver's for a few hours, did some browsing, and completed most of the scrapbook layout that I am sharing today. One of the coolest things that happened this weekend, however was, that my husband gave me my Christmas present early:  A new camera. Gone are the days of my using only my I-Phone 4s for photographs, I now have a Canon Rebel and I adore it. I have only played with it a couple of hours, but have already got some good shots of closeups, inside happenings, as well as some great Autumn shots. My husband is the greatest-that is all I'm sayin'.

Without further ado:

And a close up of some of my embellishing:
