I declare it officially FALL!

Even though our temps are still hitting close to 70, I'm calling it fall. We went pumpkin picking (at Walmart!), carved the pumpkins and roasted the seeds. Yup, sure signs of fall. Now, if we could just get some sweater weather going, it'd be PERFECT!

Perry and the kids set the bar a little higher in their pumpkin designs this year. Because I have to share the pumpkin seeds with my greedy kids and husband, we did 4 pumpkins so there would be plenty of seeds to go around.


The two on the left are Elise's. She designed a kitty cat face and convinced her dad to carve a unicorn. Carson's are on the right. The odd face is a clone trooper (I'm sure that really needed no explanation).

I'm off to munch on some seeds...

Cool pumpkins!! Fall has arrived here. I am wearing sweaters, sitting by fires and sipping apple cider at last :-)

Wow! What great pumpkins! (And what a good Daddy to carve a unicorn- that took some time!)

Wow-za - those look great G! We aren't quite that talented here - so we are just decorating ours. which one did you decorate?

We are also enjoying some cooler weather - can't wait to dig out our fall clothes - we are still wearing flip-flops and shorts for the most part.
