Hey mom, I can see through your head.

Whatever, you cannot.

Oh yeah I can.

Today was one of those days when you want to freeze time because you know that moments like this are fleeting.

The boys will grow up and forget, and my memory will fade.

But today, today I want to remember forever.

I want to remember how the sun felt on my face. I want to remember how the boys' laughter carried across the football field. I want to remember how my son's hand felt in mine walking across the field.

I want to remember my youngest being all serious about the game...

Ok, you go long, I"ll fake left...

Later on, after the game we went to the pumpkin patch because our absolutely fabulous fall day wouldn't be complete without picking the perfect pumpkin to bludgeon carve.

That white one just fell over as he walked up to it, it probably collapsed from fear. It knew what was about to take place.

Run Sally, he stole his head, ours might be next!

Poor Grandma...just wanted a nice quiet Saturday night ....

SILLY WOMAN, not while there are pumpkins to gut!

"I didn't know you were gonna kill it!" - Linus, It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

All the gruesome guts cleaned up and pumpkins ready to display...

Lights OFF!

What a super-fantabulous day! Talk about living in the moment; good for you. You are beautiful and filled with light (and nary a trace of snarkiness - lol!). Carving pumpkins is so messy and fun! Yours turned out just great. Happy Halloween to you and yours.
