I think we are. But we were happy to tag along with our friends this past Sunday – to see the New York Botanical Garden’s Haunted Garden. Lots of crazy ideas here for how to carve (or stack) your pumpkins into nifty sculptures. We have 2 last pumpkins to carve/paint or stick with these cool decorators that Bubby found… and then it’s over. Pumpkins – prepare to become soup!

and of course the kids want to keep them forever, or at the very least they’d like it if we boil the pumpkins down and make them into pies and cookies. Where can I find the time? We did manage to strap on 2 small pumpkins to a large one and call her Minnie Mouse… which thrilled Zoe. If only I could find something safer than rubber bands to keep the ears on!

We had some free family fun in Brooklyn this past Saturday. This Haunted Walk was entertaining but I’m glad we did it by daylight hours. The kids are suddenly crawling into our bed in the wee hours of the night – so I think all this halloween haunting business is getting to them! But the foliage turning in Prospect Park made the trip worth while.

Are you going to take in the scents and tastes of fall this weekend? More cider and donuts and smelling fruit that has started to hit the ground for us… have a great weekend.

While they still do not yet have names, it was fun to welcome 2 new little kittens to the Cornwall house. Brad picked them out and loves them to bits… two sweet little sisters who entertained the kids for a good part of the weekend. I’m just glad the kids know to be gentle with them because the cats were easily wiped out – perhaps by all the new stimulation? We are still pitching names… know of any good ones?

Busy week. Lots of photos to post – and not a lot of time to write! So I’ll leave us with these photos of leaves turning, apples and pears falling, kids picking, and new kittens frolicking in the yard at Cornwall. Lots of chopping and stacking wood for the coming cold months (and for more s’mores!)
