Pumpkins everywhere!

We have been eating a lot of pumpkin at our house. We had candy pumpkins, my favorite! Pumpkin cookies, Ty's favorite. Pumpkin pancakes and Pumpkin sweet rolls, Emree's Favorite. Then last night we decided to carve a pumpkin. Emree really didn't enjoy the process, but she loved the result. Isn't that so much of life? I told her I was sorry she had to learn the lesson so young.

Growing up we always carved pumpkins, but I was telling Tyler that I am pretty sure I never used the knife. In fact, I think my Dad always did it for me and since I have been married Tyler has always done it for me. I am not sure that I am missing out, but I kind of thought it was funny. In fact, I am almost positive I would cute myself and that it's better this way!

What are your favorite pumpkin recipes? We NEED some more.

i hate carving pumpkins...and i know cambree would be super upset if i didn't let her do it...so we resort to painting our pumpkins every year!! I give cambree some paint and a brush and she paints away! works like a charm. go to the dollar store get a big ol plastic table cloth, strip her down and let her have at it. the craft acrylic paint comes off of skin SUPER EASY! just a thought! and i haven't made anything other then pumpkin pie using pumpkin so i got nothin!

We love LOVE Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies. OH SO GOOD!!!
I'm jealous you guys were carving a pumpkin!! We really want to carve some here, but we have to wait another week, otherwise the humidity will rot them out in like 2 days, no joke.
Super cute pics. Love the one of Emree giving you a kiss!
