The Great Pumpkin Quest

Somebody whispered in my ear it was a good day to go pumpkin hunting. I couldn't deny any longer it was that time of the year...

So we gathered the wee toddler up and headed out to a local garden centre for a stroll about to find the perfect pumpkin...

or two....

Ok, maybe I got caught up in the exuberance of it all...

So, yes, ok, we got five pumpkins and an assortment of gourds. They just looked so happy together we couldn't break them up. You understand, right?

Hope the Halloween spirit is bringing you some fun this week!

You can't break up a happy family. Are you going to carve them all?

Hi All :)

I love the warty one too! They call it a "Knucklehead" pumpkin and I think that's a good name for it. I haven't decided if I am going to carve any, but if I do, it will be that one...it has such personality! I couldn't resist the little one with the long stem either, that stem just called to be picked up and put in my cart :)
