The Last of the Pumpkins

This is it, hopefully!
I am switching to
maybe a
Santa or two.
I think that I will put the orange paint to rest for awhile.
Other than snowman noses!
Still preparing for the open house.

I need to get some polyfil.
And some leaves on that sunflower.

A few more ornaments.

Another slate and some treat bowls.

And these cute little buggers that I bought at
Pumpkin Fest last weekend.
This pic is dark because they are above my stove and the light sort of glares on them.
I may have to move them.

And now for the Butternut Squash portion of this post...
Because we have lots.
Sunday, I made these pies.
Wow, were they good! 
I was even surprised!
After enduring all the family comments.
"Where did you get that pie dough?"
"Are you sure that you know what you are doing?"
And such.
Anyway, the only thing that I did different than this recipe
is that I used Amaretto for the water.

And JWS is spreading the pureed squash on his vegetables.
Is this that hard of a decision?

Girl's Day.

I managed to get somewhat caught up at work
and I am taking the day off and having
Gracelyn and Kendall.

I would like to get my fall decorations out.
then again, we may just play all day.

I hope you have a wonderful Girl's Day Cathy. I'm like you, I'm finishing up some Halloween things for a gathering at my friends house this weekend. Open house for her Scentsy and my things that will be cash and carry. THEN I'm moving on to winter and Christmas creating too! The pumpkin bowls are darling.
