Edited to add: I am super honored to have one of my past “Your Photo- My Edit” photos featured on Pioneer Woman’s blog today (She's like the Martha Stewart of mom bloggers if you don't know who she is). If you’d like to take a peek, clickety HERE to go right to the post. It’s the 5th picture (girl with cowboy hat). Cheri is the very talented photographer who sent the photo to me. This is so fun! Also thanks, Hannah, for letting me know about this! Not in my wildest dreams!
Monday we took a trip to the farm and pumpkin patch.
I always put my big kids to work when they are around. Slave labor is cheap these days.
Don’t you just love this season? Puts me in a good mood.
I told Goofy Foot I would give him 50 bucks if he could lift that pumpkin.
I’m a mean mom.
Pumpkins are heavier than they look.
Beach Bunny was so proud of herself when she found her first ever “perfect pumpkin”. It was probably the smallest pumpkin in the whole patch, but it was perfect to her. She kept telling me, “Yook (look), Mama, my punkin. Not hebee (heavy)!”
Do dark clouds know that bright orange pumpkins chase the rain away?
Baking pumpkin seeds is an October tradition at our house. I’m eating them right now, in fact, so I thought I’d share the recipe with you.
Pumpkin Seed Recipe:
Clean and rinse pumpkin seeds.
Place in small pot of water.
Bring to a boil and boil for 10 minutes.
Drain seeds and place on baking sheet.
Season with olive oil, salt and garlic powder.
Bake at 400 degrees for 12 minutes.
What do you love baking this time of year?
