time to break the blog silence I suppose.
in the past week we've made commendable progress on our extensive list of fall traditions, and we visited the Nelson again! (the grounds that is. we only had a tuesday to offer and the museum scoffs at tuesday goers and locks the doors. rude)
we spent some quality time at the pumpkin patch eating hot dogs and roasted marshmallows, giant pickles, and whatnot. tasty cider slushies also happened. when sufficiently stuffed for the moment, we picked out our perfect pumpkins with our favorite little pumpkin, then grabbed many apples and headed home for massive amounts of homemade spaghetti and meatballs and cheesecake. naturally.
today, after massive amounts of barbecue etc. and more celebrating, we carved our perfect pumpkins. though some may say we got carried away with the space references on our moon pumpkin, I think it's total perfection. =) we even shared the joy of making stars in the pumpkin with a screwdriver. too much fun.
