10 Things Pumpkin

As you may have figured out by now, Monday Listicles is the bright spot at the beginning of my week.  This week the topic was a no-brainer: Halloween!  And what's more Halloween-y than pumpkins, I ask?  The answer is... nothing.  At this time of year, we can't get enough of them.  And lucky for you, I'm willing to share.  Here is my list of ten things pumpkin:

1.  First up?  The pumpkin patch, of course!



2. The Pumpkin Princess at said pumpkin patch.


3.  Carving pumpkins and frolicking elbow deep in pumpkin guts.


4. Daddy's pumpkin. 5. Lilah's pumpkin. 6. Mummy's pumpkin.  Can you guess which is which?


7.  Roasted pumpkin seeds, fresh out of the oven.


8.  Lilah's trick-or-treat basket.


9.  Pumpkin seed cookies. Recipe here.  (Okay, so they don't look quite as good as the originals.  That's because I let Lilah help.)



10.  And finally, my favourite little pumpkin of all:

  1. Oh my, the cutest pumpkin EVER! Love your photos. Such a great spin. Ad for the record, pumpkin is my favorite word in English. Just love the way it sounds. Actually even in Slovenian it is pretty cool. Buchka.

  2. @StashaIt's fun in French, too. And with the beret, we thought Lilah looked more like une petite citrouille than a just a plain old pumpkin!

  9. Dude, I want to be the Pumpkin Princess! Any reason to boss people around seems like a great job to me, plus a corset top works wonders for the "girls".
    I love your little pumpkin! She's so adorable!

  10. I must say, I'm not sure I have ever frolicked in pumpkin guts! LOL That one made me giggle. You do have a mighty cute pumpkin. Happy Halloween!

  11. @JessicaThe cookies are both tasty and reasonably healthy - half of the flour is whole wheat, and they are sweetened with honey. The worst ingredient is butter. Toddlers seem to like them as much as the really junky cookies, so it's a win-win!

  12. @JackieCheck your local patch - maybe they are hiring!

  16. @finallyMom.blogspot.comI didn't enjoy it before I had a kid, either. But Seeing my girlie girl get her hands messy with pumpkin guts turned all that around for me!
