It's Pumpkin Time, Oh Yeah!

Hi, friends!
It's that time of year again...cooler temps, brisk mornings and evenings, lovely fall colors, Halloween, and PUMPKIN CARVING!  Without telling you my age, hahaha, I remember when I was a kid and everybody carved their pumpkins pretty much like the one next door, and next to that, etc.  They were still fun beyond belief and pretty much required for Halloween.  Every porch had pumpkins (and every house gave out treats, but that's a different story).
Nowadays, what is cool or even funny,  for a little bit of nothing you can buy pumpkin carving kits with tools and templates.  Or you can do like me and check out my favorite stand-by... Martha Stewart.  She only had like 79 pumpkin ideas, but that's a good start. lol.  You just must check these out, even if you don't do pumpkins.  These are amazing!  Here are a couple of my favorites...

OK, you will have to look them up to see the rest, otherwise I am going to end up printing them all here.  Are they not the coolest ever?  Martha even gives you the templates and tells you everything you need to know to do these.
How about this weekend you head to the orchard or the veggie stand or even the grocery store and try your hand at pumpkin carving.  Make a block party out of it, or a family get-together compitition, or do it with your kids...just be sure to do it.  You may just be surpised at how much fun you have. 


Today's Tidbit:
God wants you to know that you will feel better if you notice the sweetness of life.  Notice the smiles of children, the songs of the birds, the caress of the suns' warmth.  This sweetness is for you.  Allow it to soothe your soul and bring a smile to your face.
