Pumpkin Carving and Spider Oreos {Halloween 2011}

November 8, 2011

Each year we carve pumpkins and each year I wonder why we don’t just paint the pumpkins—nobody loves scooping out the “guts”! But in the end it’s worth it when we light the candles and see how cool they look on the front porch (and when we eat roasted pumpkin seeds later on). Everyone designs […]

Pumpkin Patch

October 18, 2010

We had a pretty laid-back long weekend, with the kids home from school for Fall Break. It was a beautiful, warm weekend–the kind of weather that makes October one of my favorite months of the year. We took a little trip to a local pumpkin patch to stock up on our pumpkins to carve and […]

Halloween 2009

November 10, 2009

Unfortunately I got really sick (again) for about a week and had a billion things going on, which severely affected my computer time and hence, the lackage of posts. But I’m feeling much better now and am tackling my […]

Aaaaand……I’m back!

I was also able to spend the weekend at […]
