Pumpkin Day 2012

While I should have let the tradition die this year, I just couldn't let go of it.  I started Pumpkin Day when we moved here in 2006.  Sophie was 2 and I was pregnant with JC.  Our days were long and Pumpkin Day was a fun way to fill a long Saturday.  We've had fun doing it every year, but fast forward to 2012 and I couldn't find a Saturday to squeeze it in.  So instead of letting it go like a sane person would the kids and I had Pumpkin Day on Sunday.  It didn't include Daddy this year but the 3 of us had fun.

 We started out our day with pumpkin bread.  I had to really think about my menu this year with the change in our eating habits.  The kids loved the pumpkin bread though.
 After breakfast we watched It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown.
 After church we made pizzas.
 The finished product!
 After naps we rode our bikes over to Sierra Vista's pumpkin patch.

For dinner it was pumpkin pancakes with cinnamon and brown sugar on top.  We are pumpkined out!
