This is Talon's first home-grown pumpkin... pretty impressive, huh?! Papa and Granny grew it for him and he's pretty excited about it. I guess this year I get to make some of my desserts with fresh pumpkin. Sounds like fun!
Talon's excited because he's finally big enough to peddle his bike. Around, and around, and around the house we go!
I couldn't resist this picture. I put Talon down for his nap, and apparently he had his hat sitting on his bed, because when I went to check on him he was wearing it. I took it off, and as soon as he got up the first thing out of his mouth was "hat?".

I guess it's time once again to share what I've NOT been up to.
Of course, I did not take the kids outside and spend over a half hour snapping pictures of them playing in the grass. I didn't then come inside to download the pictures onto my computer only to find I hadn't put the memory card back in the camera from when I had used it earlier in the day. Not Me!
I did not head into the house after going grocery shopping, come back to get another load, and discover I had forgotten to turn off the car. Not Me!
After shopping at Target, I did not grab a quick Starbucks for Anthony and I, so of course my hands weren't full trying to push the cart and hold two cups in my hand. I didn't have to juggle a few things to get to my purse only to realize my keys were nowhere to be found, and had to go back into the store to find I had left them at the checkout stand. Not Me!
I didn't go to start the washer in the morning after breakfast, only to look inside and find the diapers I had changed just a short time before sitting on top of the towels. After all, what kind of a scatterbrained individual would toss the dirty diapers into the washer instead of the garbage? Not Me!
I didn't make a batch of pumpkin scones, then start cleaning up the kitchen and ignore the fact that the timer had gone off. So, naturally, I didn't smell something burning, only to look in the oven and find very dark triangular objects staring me in the face. Not Me!
I did not go to Albertson's on my way home from work, buy over 60 cans of miscellaneous soups because they were such a good deal, then leave them in the car to unload later because I was too tired (and lazy) to bring them in and put them away. Not Me!
Everyone knows I didn't fall down the stairs and almost break my ankle because I got in too big of a hurry and wasn't watching where I was going. Not Me!
As I read back over these I start to wonder about myself. Maybe I really DO need to seek help! ........ Nah, Not Me!!

She then proceeded to wet all over the carpet when I got her in trouble.
If that wasn't enough...
After I got the floors swept and vacuumed, I let both of the dogs out to go to the bathroom before I went to bed, and they tracked in fresh cut grass all over my clean floors. Urrrrrgh!

These are just a few things I really look forward to:
So much fun! This is a preview of the 2009 Corn Maize at the Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island in Oregon. And do they ever have great caramel apples!
Pumpkin Spice is one of my very favorites. I always stock up on them in the fall!
Homemade Apple Sauce
Vacation from mowing the lawn
I hate to be cold! Bring out the sweaters and the double layers!

Hmmm... I wonder what else might be missing around here!
If only he could be that enthralled with putting his toys in his toy box!!
Talon thought he was pretty big stuff when they let him try to ride the scooter. Let's just say he moved on to a more age appropriate riding toy very quickly!
