My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

It's Pumpkin Time!!!

So, who's ready to carve our pumpkins???

Daddy did the carving, Momma did the scooping/cleaning....

Ok, so they stuck their hands in long enough for this picture......and then all said they needed to go wash their hands!

So much for this being a group effort!!

Patience is a virtue.....



How long before Christmas??

That's great. I just found your blog and love it. I'm a special ed teacher and we get a pumpkin every year. My student with autism actually helped us scoop the seeds out while repeatedly saying "Nasty". We tossed the seeds in olive oil and coated with salt and then baked them. They were delicious. Then we baked the pumpkin, pureed it, and made pumpkin pie in a jar. I also, have a son with special needs. He doesn't like getting his hands dirty, either. A few weeks ago, I made him help make meatloaf. He would only mix using one hand. Just love 'em all. Thank you for blogging!
