I love pretty much EVERYTHING about autumn!
We had some of the family together to welcome fall, and this is what we did:
Why, you ask, is there an extension cord near the pumpkin carving? Because Bryan used his dremel for his artistic pumpkin carving. For Bryan, tell him there's a power tool involved and he'll participate in anything! This is probably Bryan's last Halloween at home. He just submitted his mission papers (We're members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and he has the opportunity to serve a volunteer 2-year mission. Lots of excitement here because it's now the waiting game - we don't know where he will serve. It could be Tulsa, Oklahoma or Tazmania; Spokane or Spain ... we'll find out in a couple of weeks!)
So, we have a genetic disease in our family: Holiday-itis. We can't help ourselves - we celebrate long and early. Azure's been asking me if we can decorate for Christmas for 2 weeks now. So the fact that we carved pumpkins in September is actually showing restraint for us.
Are you a big holiday celebrater? I'd love a peek into your home to see your fun celebrations!
