I've been on a baking spree. mostly everything containing pumpkin. These are Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, but I have also made Choco-pumpkin muffins(the cake mix weight watchers recipe)and a Pumpkin Ice cream Dessert. Well, it gives me a reason to use pretty serving plates.
Friday we had our little date night. No plans so we winged it. Favorite mex restaurant for dinner. It was funny because they were so fast that we were like outta there in less than an hour. We were thinking,"now what?" And that jump start on Xmas shopping was irresistible. So what better place than Target. I think we set a record for Jason as far as time spent in that store. We made some decisions on the kids(choosing QUALITY over QUANTITY) the girls are getting American Girl stuff and Grady is getting a train table. That's it. It is so relieving to me.
Anyway, we got done and it was so early that we drove around exploring and talking and listening to music. Finally deciding on Glenside Pub for dessert-Chocolate Fondue(see I always get what I want in some sort of way) But I do want to still go to The Melting Pot, Jason. Consider this a not-so-subtle hint.
So today, Jason is processing his deer. My house is a wreck. I need to wrap up some details on Halloween costumes and decide exactly how to make and transport 28+ eyeball cookies for Summer's class.
And Jason came home yesterday with 5 GIANT pumpkins that need carving. Tuesday, I think. I really thought we only needed 3, but he said he wanted his own and of course I would need one too. So we will be carving pumpkins until dawn. Well, it wouldn't be the first year. I think we started last year at like 8pm. not good. But whatever. You should see the pumpkins my dad carves. Unreal. They are like sculptures. If he does one this year, I'll post pics. And hopeful I'll have some good ones of us carving ours too.
