Who’s Going to Carve the Jack-o-lantern?

I’ve really enjoyed my fall arrangement of pumpkins and mums.  Think every time I’ve walked out the door, I’ve gotten a glimpse of them and taken a moment to breathe in and savor a bit of fall.  But at 49andcounting I’ve run in to a bit of a problem.  Who’s going to carve the jack-o-lantern?

The chicks have all left the nest, the grandbabies are hundreds of miles away, and I have a huge orange pumpkin that definitely needs to become a jack-o-lantern!  Yesterday afternoon, I did something that I haven’t done in years, I carved the pumpkin.  I’ll have to admit, all those years when the kids were home I was the picture taker…I didn’t get into the middle of the mess (same with Easter eggs)…so it had been years since I stuck my hand into the pumpkin mush…but yesterday I did it!  And had so much fun.

Isn’t it cute?  Boy, did My Big Boy think I was a little bit crazy when I asked for his drill!  I found the idea on pinterest, and is just my kind of jack-o-lantern!

Guess you’re never too old. By the way, did I tell you that I was the “Pumpkin Princess” once.  (that had to do with a great pumpkin fudge recipe!)   Can’t wait to come up with other ways to relive my childhood.  Any ideas???



About 49andcounting

Hi! I'm a mom, wife, grammy, sister, friend at that ALMOST 50 age!! (Okay, since I started this a few years ago...well, add a bit to 49andcounting!) How the heck did I get here so fast?!? I love, love, love- my girls, antiques, rural America, history, Jesus, junkin,the lake and my Big Boy...not particularly in that order. It's about time I change this profile a bit. After a year or living in our 5th wheel in beautiful Pennsylvania, My Big Boy and I are back to the Kansas Prairies. And there's just nothing like "Home Sweet Home". Hitting the Big 50 has its own unique, well...let's say...blessings :) So come along, laugh with me...cry with me...praise God with me...and let's do this 49andcounting thing, together!
