S'mores, jack-o-lanterns and roasted pumpkin seeds!

We had the most fun Friday evening!! Brent took Chase and Noah to a most wonderful "pumpkin patch" (Wallyworld) and found the biggest, most beautiful pumpkins for 3.99 each!! Can you believe that? Plus he bought all the supplies to make s'mores! So after dinner Brent, Chase and Noah went out back and built a beautiful fire. We all gathered 'round and enjoyed the warmth (even though it wasn't really that cold just chilly, Noah even had shorts on!) and family. We missed David, as he had to work in Savannah and missed Brad too as he was with friends. The s'mores were delicious and roasted marshmallows always remind me of my childhood. We camped all the time!



Sweet Emily gazing at the fire ~ she's been feeling the baby!! Next Thursday is her 20-week sonogram.....We can't wait to find out what she's having ~



Noah grinning ~ what boy doesn't love a campfire?!





Brent working on his marshmallow roaster/coat hanger and Emily supervising!









The professional construction of "The S'more"











And on to pumpkin carving time!





Our seed bounty!


The wonderful handiwork ~

And also our first fire of the season in the fireplace as the pumpkin seeds roasted in the oven.....the aroma was just wonderful!

These are the days that memories are made of ~
much love to you all,
xxoo, Dawn
