it is monday and i am back. here it is.. a twelve photo recap of our holiday in my hometown. the house, the puppy dog, the carving contest, the mj tribute, a housewarming candle, and a dash of blurriness. {jack-o-lanterns are hard to capture} get ready for a whole long scroll.

Those are amazing. I can't believe Grant was able to do MJ! Sounds like a good time.

i can't wait to show my friend grant's mj pumpkin. my friend wanted to do MJ but her fiance talked her out of it, i bet she'll carve another pumpkin after she she sees that pumpkin!

thanks for sharing your great pictures summer! Your pictures make everything look wonderful! We had a great time too...and the pumpkins are still doing great! (little hint: spray them with a mix of lemon juice and water..and keeping them in 40* weather doesn't hurt either!)

Oh how I loved the weekend update, Summer. What amazing pumpkins! And amazing family to carve them with. Oops! I ended that sentence with a preposition. I should say "amazing family with 'witch' to carve them". :)

awesome pics, summer! i love to see you and the fam getting festive with all the pumpkins and decor. i have to admit, i'm already brainstorming what kind of christmas decor i want around this season. love the pb catalog but definitely only use them for ideas since budgets and overpriced don't mix. :) happy fall, summer!!

absolutely boo-tiful. you and your creations and your visit back home. i love this post about true wholesome family fun. and what a darling shirt you wear (festive to be black/white for pumpkin carving)! glad you had a ball together. and i must admit, i loved miley and the simple country life in that movie. am slowly becoming a fan of that girl.
