All that needs to be reported about this day is that
I BOUGHT MY FIRST PUMPKINS of the season.
Christian and I ran a few errands, and I spotted them at the store;
bright orange, plump with tall tops and perfect shapes.
I needed not only one but two so I could set them
atop my driveway gate posts
welcoming us in and out every day.
Chrisitan buckled the two giant pumpkins in seatbelts
in the back of the truck
and we drove home to show the Nies.
I don't care how old my kids are; this is still one
of the most exciting moments that officially welcomes
the Halloween season!
