Fun Friday Foto Fextravaganza – Pumpkins!

I’m in a rush again – another parent/teacher conference day at another school for another child – so for the second Friday in a row I will bless you with brevity 🙂

As it is Friday, that means it’s time for the Fun Foto Fextravaganza.  This week’s theme is PUMPKINS/JACK O’LANTERNS.  I know this is cheating, but I was unable to choose only one.  So here are my two:

The new fashion – I think everyone will be wearing them soon 🙂

Really, what the heck is going on here? 🙂
(and how creative/artistic is that pumpkin monster?!)

Please check out fellow fextravagansist Catherine’s foto, as well as Stacy’s and Robyn’s (our 2 other die-hard players in this wacky game 🙂 – Robyn’s isn’t up yet, but I heard a rumor it will be later so keep your fingers crossed!)  If you’d like to join in, choose a photo appropriate for ages 0-12 that says pumpkins/jack o’lanterns to you, post it on your blog, and put your link in the comments below so everyone can come visit you!

Also, if you have any good recipes that involve pumpkin, it’s about that time…  My recipes tend to involve things like:
Step 1:  go to store
Step 2: buy pumpkin pie because there is no time to bake during parent/teacher conference season 🙂

BTW, in case you were wondering, I went to a wonderful school visit yesterday (where Woolliam/Baahhb, my sheep puppet, was such a hit I could barely get out of the classroom!) and I picked up the beautiful signed copy of Haunted Party that is going to be the prize in the Halloweensie Contest.  If you haven’t read about it yet, go here and get those gears a-turnin’ 🙂

OK.  What else do I have to share with you today?  Probably a million things, but no time!  So have a donut on me, have a great weekend, and I hope I’ll see everyone here Monday for the Choose Your Own Adventure Bloghop – SO EXCITING!!!

Ahoy, Sea Serpent!!!

(Yes.  That is my version of brevity :))

    I love those pictures. When I was a kid we didn't 'do' Hallowe'en in the UK. I could never work out what was going on when we saw kids dressed up on US TV programmes.

    Great to hear about your successful school visit. What a lovely reaction from the kids.

    Great pumpkin photos. Must be fulfilling to do a school visit and have such a great experience with kids!

    Have a great pumpkin dip that is very easy, healthy and great with apples and fruit — if you're interested.

    Robyn – glad you like, and you're welcome!

    Rosalind – yes, it was lovely! I think they wanted to keep Woolliam for a pet 🙂

    Stacy – I loved yours too! And the school visit was fun 🙂

    Abby – I'll look forward to seeing you Monday for the Adventure!

    Janet – I know, right? I wonder how they did that?

    Patricia – thanks. And yes, I would love the recipe if it's really easy 🙂

    Catherine – I am exceptionally good at eating both apple crisp and pumpkin pie 🙂

    Pumpkin Dip — Great for Kids and Family Parties

    1/2 C canned pumpkin
    8 oz Creamed cheese (set out) (I use fat free)
    1/2 C Powdered Sugar
    1/2 C Brown Sugar
    1 1/2 tsp Pumpkin Spice

    Blend ingredients and refrigerate. Use as a dip with apples, most fruit, or ginger snaps. It's real easy and always a hit!
