Halloween Fun

This year, the kids came up with some clever ideas for their Halloween pumpkins.  Little Bit decided to have a “glamour vampire pumpkin” and Big Girl decided to have a “French pumpkin,” complete with a beret.


Our neighbor came over to help us carve and they had a great time together –


in spite of the gross innards they had to remove.


I chose the “polka dot” pumpkin – easy for SuperMan to do with a drill and yet very striking at night.


I think they turned out awesome, don’t you?

And then Halloween night rolled around – Trick-or-Treating as a Vet, a Mermaid and a Mad Scientist.  I think they were so cute!!


and now the Halloween candy is gone and we’re gearing up for Thanksgiving – I need to start working on my menu! What about you!?!


10 Things

Ten things I love … about Fall

  1. The bluest of blue skies and whitest of clouds, contrasted with the golds and reds of the leaves.
  2. Crisp, cool evenings.
  3. Waking up to foggy mornings.
  4. Pumpkins, Indian corn, hay rides and apple picking.
  5. Trick-or-Treating and cute kids in costume.
  6. Windows-open days. (no air conditioning)
  7. Changing my menus and cooking old favorites again.
  8. The first fire in the fireplace.
  9. Wearing new Fall/Winter clothes for the first time.
  10. Snuggling with SuperMan to stay warm at night.
