Pumpkins and Pups!

Good Morning! Nothing I love more than a good Monday morning--the week is so new and fresh and full of promise.  What about you? Love Mondays or no?

Yesterday LAS and I had a fun Fall fest sort of day: we got pumpkins, stopped by a local church's Pumpkin Fest and dropped in on Ky, Bobbus and Darcy!

LAS free-handed our ferocious pumpkin and I was in charge of glittering the baby ones...yes that is an FSU pumpkin (despite the fact our hearts were ripped out and stomped on Thursday night...we still <3 them, we can't help it!)

Stella and Darcy had a delightful time and despite 1,345,678 attempts, this was THE only photo we could get of them being still--needless to say, Stella crashed big time when we got home!

I roasted the seeds from our pumpkin for the first time ever and they were SO good...made me wish we had a larger pumpkin! Per cup of seeds, I just added a 1/2 tablespoon of butter and a 1/4 teaspoon of salt and roasted them at 300 for 30-45 minutes...I really just watched them until they were a nice golden color (LAS did not approve of this method, but I think he'll agree everything turned out for the best!)
