Pumpkin Fun and then Some

We managed to squeeze in a few pumpkin projects this fall, despite having less time with both kiddos being in school. I think it's harder on me than the kiddos, not having the time to be as creative with them! LOL!

The kiddos' entries into the newspaper's coloring contest. I think it's cute Blake tried coloring his like his sister's :-)

These are some Marshmallow Pumpkins we made. I had seen them on Frugal Family Fun blog, but I made a little change by adding a green sprinkle for the stem :-)


The kids LOVED making these Paper Bag Pumpkins!


The pumpkins turned out almost as cute as their creators :-)


Of course we had to pick our TWO pumpkins from the garden.


Then do a little posing for pictures with the pumpkins....and the cattle.


I put the kiddos to work taking the pumpkins to the house...good thing work is fun at their age :-)


I made these Candy Corn Cupcakes just because I thought they were cute and would be fun to eat this time of year :-)


The cat posing with the pumpkin that we never had time to carve before Halloween. Now if only she were black, it would be more fitting for this time of year! :-)

Fun! I love those pumpkin marshmallows!

We actually planted pumpkins in the spring, but they never turned orange! I just don't have good luck with living things LOL! (although I have to admit, I wasn't too bothered by it because I'm not a fan of carving pumpkins).
