Autumn is officially here :)...

We've had gingersnaps, a couple of cool days in a row, the leaves are finally starting to change color...

And we've bought pumpkins, and cleaned them out...

And separated all the seeds to make roasted pumpkin seeds...

And then made pumpkin muffins with our own pumpkin puree :)!
When Mommy was putting the pumpkins in the cart, Abbi got all excited- "Yay! Compost!" she yelled. I'll admit, it had a compost-able rind, and she does enjoy helping Tori take out all the compost... but it was funny :). Emmi then gets excited when Mommy is carrying them to the house- "Ball!" she squeals :)!...

Do you have a recipe for roasted pumpkin seeds you could share? My mom wanted to make them this year, but couldn't find a good recipe.

We have not carved our pumpkin yet... we were going to do it tomorrow night, but then some friends whom we don't get to see very often invited us over for dinner. Oh well, it will happen sometime in the next few weeks... no rush :)

My Mom uses a "spiced pumpkin seed" recipe. The web address is:

Hope you enjoy them!
That just gives you longer to look forward to it :)!

Um... that didn't take you right to the recipe... I'm not sure why. I'll have to ask my Mom if she can figure it out...
