Is it really October???

Last friday I prepared some Halloween goodies to send to my Marine sons over in Iraq. I made 2 batches of rice krispies treats and cut them into pumpkin shapes after spraying them with orange food coloring mist. I made faces with black icing, the best I could...hahahaha...some of them look pretty sad but what can ya do? I made goodie bags for all with the pumpkins and some other candies. I also sent Robert some peeps and some halloween pencils to give out to the Iraqi children.

I took Alex to the farm yesterday and we got some pumpkins and spent some time in the corn maze and went on the hay ride. Man, was I sweating!! I can't remember a time when I went pumpkin picking in shorts and sandals. It was 88 degrees when we got back in the car. Alex's face was so red and he was overheated, it was insane!!

Those pumpkins are great! You gave me an idea for later this week with the rice krispies I just found (they are still good, lol).

He'll just love them! Great job!
