Pumpkins Galore!!

Have I mentioned yet that I love fall in New England?

Well if I haven't....I do....

We had a lovely Columbus day weekend here - the Open Market was a big ole' bust for me - I won't even start to go into it.  The only thing I will say is at least my new set up looked nice with my new bag display.

Sunday on the other hand was a great day.  We slept in late (very very late) and then we went Pumpkin picking, and cow train riding, and corn maze gazing, and tractor riding....everything fun that you do in the fall.















I can't believe I actually got them both (almost) looking at the camera!!



Of course we had to end the day with some pumpkin painting...










And some mandatory fall baking (pie shell with apple pie filling - had an extra pie crust left over from chicken pot pie)




Totally off topic... Jack and I are snuggling on the couch watching Concert for George (tribute to George Harrison) Ravi Shankar's daughter is playing the citar now - it is by far one of the most amazing things to watch and some of the most beautiful musical pieces I have ever heard.   If you like music, especially something exotic to our western ears and amazing to watch.  I highly recommend getting (beg, borrow, steal...well maybe rent...) this amazing concert on DVD!! (and if you watch it...keep an eye out for Tom Hanks!!)

  1. I want the apple deliciousness at the end! I am going to make apple sauce tonight, but pie sounds so much better! I'm glad Sunday was a nice day for you guys. We spent it cleaning which is no where near as fun as pumpkin "shaking". :o)

  2. Yum.I am loving all the pumpkin photos going on. I am not sure that we will get a chance to get pumpkins. We have had snow and they are saying that the whole crop is going bad and there is nothing that they can do about it...

    I love the apple pie thingy that you made. That looks really good too!

  3. Oh YUM!
    Looks like you guys have an actual pumpkin patch. We're taking the girls to a pumpkin patch at a local church soon. One acre of grass with thousands of pumpkins scattered about. Beautiful, but I do wish we could see the real deal! :)

  6. I'm sorry the Open Market didn't work out. Will you be able to participate in any other Fall Festivals?

    I'm glad you had a good Sunday...the boys looked like they were having a blast! They're growing so fast!

    Have a great week...
