Our friends and neighbors the Johns, had us over on Family Night for Pumpkin Carving! This year we all stuck with the traditional pumpkin face. Everyone really enjoyed taking the guts out of their pumpkins! We even had Jack O Lantern pizza with skeletons for dessert! Thank you Johns family for having us over!

We are so grateful this year for our garden. It took time, hard work, and patience. I put together some images over the summer. I wanted to share our garden in a way which you could see it's progression. The first set is May to September!
Here is Bryan's precious tomatoes. He's been waiting years for his own garden tomatoes! It's amazing what one month can do!
This was our Lemon Cucumber and Teddy Bear Sunflower bed! One of our favorites! We ate these cucumbers all summer! And we cut these beautiful sunflowers every few days to put in our home and share with neighbors and friends!
One of my favorite beds! It was my hodgepodge bed of peppers, herbs, and flowers! Contents: Lavender, basil, parsley, peppers, bell peppers, zinnias, sunflowers, Chinese eggplant, and pansies.
Every dinner we had this summer was accompanied by a fresh garden salad! I am going to miss that this winter! This tomato and cucumber medley was sprinkled with kosher salt and olive oil.

This week the girls and I were blessed to have cousin Levi with us for the week! Brooklyn and Kamryn love him so much! And when Lauryn came home from school to find that Levi had come and gone, she was very upset! Here's what we did today!
1. Coloring and Work pages
3. Math and Science! Weighing pumpkins!
