Fall Fun

It's been a fun, fall-ish couple of days around our house.
Carving pumpkins together, some requiring fancier tools than others:)

Working while the pumpkin seeds roasted and filled the house with their yummy aroma.

Posing on the porch with their pumpkins
(try to ignore The Princess' completely eclectic outfit..heehee).

I chose not to carve my pumpkin this year--
I was too excited to find one of those
gorgeous cheese wheel pumpkins again.
And it's just to pretty to carve.
I want to enjoy looking at it for another month!
Oh--and that *neck* pumpkin...
I was told it makes wonderful pumpkin pies.
So now I just need to figure out the best way to cook it up:)

We're also enjoying beautiful weather and this lovely view from our back deck.

Tonight the kiddos donned their Star Wars costumes,
Captain Rex and Boba Fett,
and headed out for some candy.
I think I'll be sneaking a few pieces!

(I think The Princess is in a growth spurt; the difference in their height has grown lately:)

(Didn't their costumes turn out cute? It's amazing what you can do with a few rolls of colored tape, a couple of shirts from the Goodwill store and some items from their own closets!)
