we're a bit ahead of schedule this year with our october activities so i thought i'd share.. andy was in charge of the big pumpkin and i was in charge of the 2 littler ones along with the pumpkin seeds [<--v. important/soo good]. because the littler ones weren't carve-able, i had to get a little creative. the one on the left is decoupaged scrap book paper and the one on the right is painted with our house number.
they all look so cute together on our back porch!

like i said, the pumpkin seeds are important, if you start cooking them as soon as you carve out the insides you're able to enjoy them before you are finished carving!
essential to every refrigerator at fall time is a gallon of cider! also good for pumpkin carving, i warm up a cup every day before work and sprinkle it with cinnamon..mmmm... not entirely convinced pumpkins are a necessary part of your fall decoration?.. check out some of these inspirational photos.. oh the possibilities!
since this fall it's all about the stripes, this is perrrfect!
i just love the fall and fall activities.. and there is no better fall activity than carving pumpkins!
