Hooray for the perfect pumpkin!
Silly kids, proud of their pumpkin pickings.
You can ask my parents. As a child, I was obsessed with the Bobbsey Twins. I read every book the library had, then requested my own copies for every birthday and Christmas for years. I read each volume multiple times, always careful not to bend or smudge any pages. Bobbsey Twins books were treasured items of my childhood, indeed. Which is why, when I noticed that they had re-released the first 12 books of the series under new covers, I jumped at the chance to pass on the Bobbsey Twins love to my own kids. To my pleasant surprise, they ask to read a few more chapters every night and seem to be really enjoying the first book.
Are we growing another
Bobbsey Twins fan?
I guess time will tell...
He was excited to receive the whole Spiderwick Chronicles set.
(We made a deal that if he reads the whole set,
I'll buy him the movie for Christmas.)
His favorite gift...Yankees Baseball-themed Pinball game!

PS. I already bought him the movie; I just want him to read the books first. :)
Many hours now spent cooking pumpkins, scooping pumpkin flesh, simmering pumpkin butter, peeling apples and slicing apples. Many hours this winter spent eating pumpkin butter on warm bread, inhaling cinnamon-y apple pies, lapping apple sauces, enjoying pumpkin pancakes in footie pajamas, nibbling pumpkin muffins around the fireplace.

Bittersweet October. The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause between the opposing miseries of summer and winter.
