Since the weather did not cooperate with us, we didn’t get to go to the pumpkin patch…….
Nick was very disappointed becuase he will be with his Dad the next two weekends and was very excited about going to pick out his own pumpkin. He kept asking me if I thought it would stop raining….there was no chance, it poured all day!
We decided to do the next best thing…..go out and buy some pumpkins at the local nursery…..
The kids had a blast decorating and carving. As you can see….Sarah has not quite mastered pumpkin carving….she is into pumpkin coloring…what imagination!
The festivities only lasted about 45 minutes, so we decided to make some pumpkin bread….we love all things pumpkin in this house….bread, pie, cake, coffee, and even pumpkin ice cream…actually, that is my favorite!!
We tried a new recipe…….it is called Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

We are hoping one of these weekends we will luck out and get some good weather so we can visit the pumpkin patch….but until then, we have a great jack-o-lantern sitting at our front door….compliments of Nick!
Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!
