A Week of Halloween

I love the fall. I love the weather and the flavors and the food.

The week started off with a bang, when on Monday after work Karl and I came home to find these: No matter how old you get it is always exciting to get a package in the mail…

and a card.
The card was hilarious, thanks Mom and Dad Hite!

Mom sent me cookie cutters, wink mom.I guess I can’t steal yours anymore.
And another awesome decoration for the piano.

Dad also sent me this new CD, Sandi Thom. He found her watching the BBC. She is great. My favorite song is Devil’s beat. Thanks Dad!

Pumpkin Bread and Pumpkin!

I used a recipe by Alton Brown. I subed chocolate chips for pumpkin seeds. It was perfect. As you can see:

Just look at it.
On Friday we carved pumpkins.
I love pumpkins…seeds.
I looked up a recipe on food network.com and found that seeds cook better when you make sure they are totally dry…
Lightly Salted, single stacked….

They were delicious.

Karl was so happy to carve pumpkins this year.
The tools we bought for the job were less than efficient.
Then Branny cracked open his pumpkin and the tools were the least of our worries.
Yes, that is green mold, yes, yes it is.

My pumpkin was sad about it.

Leah was the pro in the group. She drew a picture on her pumpkin and everything.

Still Karl’s was my favorite. 10 points for style.

Yet Brandons …
Made me the happiest

Lets add a person for scale:

Now line up all of our pumpkins to show then off, and see how huge Branny’s pumpkin face was.

Now Karl’s…that is looking into your soul!

  1. I LOVE SANDIE THOM! My favorite by here is “I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair.” I don’t know if it’s on that cd or whatevs, but you should look it up if it’s not. AMAZING.
