Pumpkin Patch

My computer is back! While it was away we took a little trip to our local pumpkin patch on the south end of town. They had all different kinds of pumpkins and gourds as well as numerous areas available for taking pictures of the kids.
This picture is the reason why it's important to take a lot of pictures. My eyes don't see so well anymore so sometimes it's hard to tell when something is not quite in focus or I get something like this!
In all we got seven pumpkins. We carved one of them just a few days ago, mostly because my husband wanted the seeds. Sadly it's already growing mold so we threw it away. But we still have six left and we'll probably wait until tonight or tomorrow to carve the rest of them.
My husband said he saw a program where they were using a jigsaw to carve them and it looked very easy. I think I might try using my Rotozip. If I can carve tiles with my Rotozip then the pumpkins should really be a breeze!
This year I haven't even decorated the house yet. I had Wil take the stuff down from the attic but it's still in the garage. I'm going to blame it on babysitting. I was gone for an hour yesterday and my husband watched the baby. When I got home he admitted it was very tiring! After all, we aren't spring chickens anymore. Carli usually likes to do that stuff so I'll have her help decorate after she gets off work.

I'll let you know how everything turns out!

As Patti wrote, "You were missed." I'm glad you (and your computer) are back.

As usual, you've taken fantastic photos of quite an adorable subject (no, not the pumpkins).

Love, M
