You know when you cut the top off the pumpkin to expose its innards?? Well...this. freaked. her. out.
She wanted NO part of the pumpkin guts or seeds; therefore, she wanted no part of participating in the pumpkin carving. Go figure!
And now I'm having trouble uploading our pumpkin pics. Wonderful. No pictures.
Yeah for pumpkins.

"Dixie Delights" is a blog that I read about everyday. The girl that writes it lives in Atlanta and she's just a couple of years older than me. She is fabulously Southern. Her house and decor are to. die. for! She has two little boys.
This poem is on her blog today. I thought is was simply beautiful--little boys being ever so slowly transformed into tomorrow's men. Leaders of families, hands and feet for Christ, strong fathers for yet another generation. If I had a son, this would be my inspiration everyday as I mothered and nurtured him. I love this!From the book Footprints of a Pilgrim by Ruth Bell Graham:
He must be so tall when he is on his knees, as one has said, he reaches all the way to Heaven.
His shoulders must be broad enough to bear the burden of a family.
His lips must be strong enough to smile,
firm enough to say no,
and tender enough to kiss.
His love must be so deep that it takes its stand in
Christ and so wide that it takes in the whole world.
He must be big enough to be gentle
and great enough to be thoughtful.
His arms must be strong enough to carry a little child.
I thought I'd pass this along to you for Bradley!
Hope ya'll are having a great weekend!

The wind is whipping here tonight. Tomorrow is trash day, so I've already put our big trash can out at the end of the driveway (you just never know when the trash guys are going to show up on Thursdays. It could be at 7:20am or 7:20pm.) I bet the wind has blown that trash can half way down the street by now. That would be a special treat since Olivia suffered from diarrhea Monday and Tuesday and the trash is full--I mean full--of unspeakable grossness.
I just thought I would share!

In true fall fashion, we celebrated the coming of October at Hardy Berry Farm's Play Patch!
We spend the day hay ridin', pumpkin pickin', pillow bouncin', grain-sack slidin', corn maze hunting and just plain-ol' wearing ourselves out in true South Cackalacky style. We all had a blast!
