Welcome To On The Avenue Home Decor & Gifts. Years ago my husband and I bought our first home. It was a very old home and needed a lot of tender love and care. I had the vision of what I wanted and my husband was able to help me bring it to life. As we began building and creating items for our home, we had another idea..... What if we started our own business and offered our creations to others who share the same love and passion for decorating as we do. Here we are, 15 years later, sharing our creations and designs with friends everywhere.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!
Good Morning Friends and Happy Halloween.  We had a blast at our Trunk Or Treat last night.  We live in the most wonderful place and around the most wonderful people.  For any of you who have not been to a Trunk Or Treat or do not know what one is.... Let me tell you.  We met at our church parking lot and made a big circle around the outside edge with our vehicles (and some parked in the middle).  Everyone opens their trunks and passes out candy.  The kids walk around and around until the candy is gone.  My kids scored!!!  They even shared the yummy chocolate treats with Eric and I.  It was awesome! We also had many people bring soups to share and delicious hot chocolate and donuts.  It lasted about an hour and a half which was perfect.  What a super fun night!  
So today we are off to a room mom party this afternoon and trick or treating this evening.  Can't wait to spend the time with our kiddos.  

How about a CHRISTMAS SALE ITEM??
Isn't this SLEIGH super cute? 
 I have added a Christmas garland around it and placed a cute snowman inside.  This sleigh is 24" Long X 12" Wide X 16" Tall.  It is a little hard to see in this picture, but the bottom blades on the sleigh are black.  This would be perfect by any Christmas Tree, on a porch or on a table.  Great Idea HUH?  
On SALE For  $45.00

Once again, I Absolutely Love This Time Of Year!!!  It is simply magical to me.  I seem to soak in every day  of the beautiful outdoors, the wonderful inside smells, the fun colors and the delicious food.  It is a great time where our family comes into the house a little earlier at night and more discussions happen.  We take more time to be together and that really is what life is all about!!!

Good Morning Friends!!  I feel like I was just here typing away!!!  Wow, another adventure with my little munchkin Chloee.  It was field trip day on Monday and I got to be the parent volunteer for that field trip.  We visited the corn maze and the pumpkin walk all in one day.  We woke up to rain, but it held off until we got into the truck to come home.  She has a darling class and it was such a blast!!  We went on a hay wagon ride, went through the corn maze and they played on the straw stack~


 

 And.... now back to the working side of my life~

Here I am again, writing our post in the evening.  I just had to clean the house, wash laundry and have school lunch with Chloee today.  Gotta love those school lunch chicken nuggets -   
We had a really fun night last night (well for the couple hours that we weren't working).  We got together with my sisters and brother and their families and my mom and dad.  My sister Tori is an amazing cook (if she is reading this right now, she is rolling her eyes, because she doesn't think she is).  But I am here to tell you - She Is An Amazing Cook!!  She made a super delicious Taco Soup with all the fixings!  YUMMO!!  Then, we decorated Halloween Sugar Cookies with frosting and WAY TOO MUCH CANDY.... but hey, that's what Halloween is all about right?  We decided to have our little Family Night Activity in their garage because of the pumpkin carving we did after the dinner and cookie decorating.  Eric and Chloee grew over 50 pumpkins this year in our garden, so we took them all over to their house and spent a couple hours carving every pumpkin we had.  What a blast and there was such creativity!! My brother in law (Jeremy)  loves BYU and they have neighbors that don't like BYU, so the kids delivered  pumpkins to the neighbors that had a big Y carved out of the center.  Funny Huh???  Here are some fun pictures......

It's Monday Morning and everyone is back in school.  We had a wonderful FALL BREAK (UEA) Weekend.  Chloee raked and raked the leaves (and then a windstorm came in last night and blew them everywhere).  Oh, well - we will just rake them again (or the snow will come and cover them all - that works too)  
So....  I have to share a little family activity we did yesterday.  Sunday is a super special day for us, because we take a break from all of work and spend time with our family.  Look what we did yesterday!!  Eric was the Caramel Dipper, I was the White Chocolate Dipper and Chloee and I sprinkled all the yummy goodies onto the apples.  Aren't they beautiful??????
(Thanks for teaching me Amy!!)



My Chloee is always silly. We had so much fun!!
