I confess. I have yet to buy a real pumpkin. Carving a jack o'lantern is like putting up a Christmas tree. It's a real pain in the neck but you just gotta do it. I did however make a pumpkin spice bundt cake.
It's a mini. I found this cute little pan at TJ Max's last week and had to have it. It wasn't easy cutting down cake recipes for its little 3 cup size but it didn't turn out too bad for my first try.
The little cake went very well with the ice cream The Mister brought home to surprise me.
I don't have a real pumpkin on the stoop but I did go up in the attic and get the wood ones Mom and Dad made for us years and years ago.
Boo! Trick or treaters used to be greeted by them. Not any more.
I've had this string of pumpkin lights since before we moved here and that's been more than 20 years. They are still burning. Imagine that.
They used to hang in the front window but since we got the new windows I can't just bang in thumb tacks wherever I want anymore. It doesn't matter where they are as long as they are shining. It wouldn't be Halloween without them. Four more days!
