Happy October my friends! I feel the seasons changing and the brisk air warms my heart. Yesterday Baby E and I went on a nice long walk, we both bundled up enjoy the chill in the air and the blowing leaves. A few trees have started to turn here and my neighbors have begun string up spider webs and putting out their pumpkins. As we passed by the local elementary school the window are full of paper pumpkins. I have mentioned before that I am not a huge fan of Halloween decor, however, I do LOVE pumpkins. This weekend we will be heading out to Michigan to visit my parents and to do all of our favorite fall festivities. We will go to our favorite pumpkin patch and then stop by the cider mill for a hot drink and yummy donuts. Recently I’ve been makings plans for what kind of pumpkins I will be hunting for this year and seeking inspiration from around the web. I think that I will definitely be making some chalkboard pumpkins as shown above. (After all, these can quickly change from a Halloween pumpkin to a Thanksgiving pumpkin by switching out “Boo” with “Gather”). Instructions for the chalkboard pumpkins can be found here. See below for other great pumpkin ideas!
