Equinox, blah, blah, blah

Delicious Autumn!

It is that time of year again when we open our windows, fire up the oven for potato soup, and plan … for pumpkins.

My family takes pumpkin carving very seriously. We could really care less about dressing up or soliciting candy from people we’ve never met … really all we care about is carving.

Two years ago my sister-in-law initiated the whole pumpkin fest. We drove many miles away, picked out the pumpkins that swore they would make us proud, and we came home to carefully gut and cut. It was incredible fun, and we have since carried on the tradition.

(Though you couldn’t pay me enough to reveal whose face I plan to place on a pumpkin this year.)

Really, does it not say something about my family that we can all sit around a table with knives the size of our heads and no one commits a crime by night’s end? I love my family.

Anyway, the photo above is the result of our first pumpkin carving phenomenon (which happened to fall very close to the presidential election). I seriously recommend that you plan an autumn family gathering of your own. You’ll be glad you did.

Happy Autumn,
