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!
