Our Old Friend Henry













We have finally gotten "Henry" set up in the yard! Henry is our scarecrow that the kids enjoy stuffing and dressing up each year in the fall. In December, shortly after Thanksgiving, they disassemble him and store him away in the garage, a little bit sad, but knowing that they'll see him again in ten months.



This year, they had a blast last Sunday night stuffing him with hay and putting on his clothes and picking out a crazy hat for him to wear. This was the first year that Brice got really into it. Each day now when we go out to wait for the Pre-K bus, he sits on a bale of hay next to Henry...so cute.



Getting Henry out each fall and watching him spring to life is one of those traditions that are great for families. It costs nothing except a fresh bale of hay each year (which is only a couple of bucks at the local supermarket). We keep the same clothes for him each year. The kids look so forward to it and its one of those things they've come to depend on each year. We started when I was pregnant with the twins, when I was on bedrest and we were desperately searching for something fun for the kids to do and Albert had come up with taking the kids to the orchard for free scarecrow making. The kids got to stuff a scarecrow and bring him home. Now, each fall, Henry is part of the family. He sits right outside our door to the left of right of our porch on a stack of hay bales decorated with pumpkins and greets visitors. Fall is such a fabulous time of year at our house. Henry is one of the reasons why.




*** Note the torn up blinds in the background. These blinds have been replaced numerous times and numerous times have been torn up again. There is one reason for this, and one reason only....BRICE.
