The Great Pumpkin!

This weekend was our annual outing to one of the gazillion local "pumpkin patches"! Parker and Hailey had a great time in the petting zoo, sliding on the giant slide and being bounced high in the sky! Oh, and we got a couple of pumpkins too! I love the holidays!

My little sugar sitting with the "sugars"...
So cute!!

I love the Holidays, too. Our neighbor let us pick a few of his pumpkins right out of the patch--good fun. Halloween really ushers in the season. The directions for the "snake" cake are at familyfun.com
You're supposed to use a bundt cake pan, I just used a round one and carefully created an outer ring and then a smaller ring. I think it looked better than the original, because the tail got to curl up nice and tight.

Yep! It's that time of the year when we start thinking about what's coming next! I love getting involved with the holidays! Your little ones look so cute with all of those pumpkins. Send your old mom some of those pictures! I want to scrap them!
Hives, eh? I remember when you used to break out just playing in the grass! Remember -- in Taos?
Love you! MOM
