Pumpkin Time

We did our annual pumpkin picking trip. We have done this for the past five years, and I make sure to schedule it in. It is one of our family events that I look forward to every year. I still haven't convinced anyone to go apple picking. Buying them at the store makes more sense to everyone. I think when they get bigger I can figure out a scheme to pick apples.
Last night I started some of my Christmas items. Crazy it seems to already to be thinking of Christmas, but last year I didn't anticipate how busy I would be so I told myself last year that I would get started on my Christmas goods in October. I have some new fun ideas I have planned for my stockings I sell. I just love Christmas , so I'm super excited to get some stuff going.
I plan on cranking out some costumes this week. I took all the measurements for the girls.
On Saturday I roasted some butternut squash, lets just say it was super delicious. I peeled my squash and then cubed it. I had the oven on 400 degress and I drizzled it with olive oil and then sprinkled cinnamon, suger, salt, and a hint of pepper. I baked it for about 25 minutes, but you can do it until its tender. I also woke up Saturday before the pumpkin picking and made another batch of pumpkin muffins. I can't get enough of these.
I am on the hunt for little jeans and shoes tonight. And we are going to have a nice greasy pizza. That's my kind of night!
Have a great Monday!


  1. Well you're smart to get started on Christmas stuff now. That last minute stuff gets crazy around the holidays! (also I think you look just like Rachel Bilson in your photo!)

  2. OH your too kind Lindsay! I'm loving all your new pieces, such beautiful work!

  3. Awe, your kids are adorable! Looks like you had a great time.
