Giant Pumpkin


Look at this GIANT pumpkin! My dad worked hard all spring and summer to grow huge pumpkins. We were lucky to be the recipients of his biggest one. He and my step mom had to roll the thing out of their car, across our sidewalk, and then it took the 3 of us to roll it up the front steps. My dad thinks that the pumpkin weighs about 150 pounds! I don't think that we will get around to carving it. Instead, I think it will sit on our front porch through Thanksgiving as a fall decoration. Then what? I'm not sure. It will have to be destroyed somehow to get it into the garbage can!

Look at your cute new family picture! Awwww. McKinley was super impressed with "the world's largest pumpkin" when she saw it the other day.

I love the new picture! It looks so good!!! You missed a good movie last night, kind of "intense" (right word!?!?!) in some parts though- but really good! I even had ICE CREAM!!! It's good you got to bed early though. You could make ALOT of pies with that pumpkin if you carved it, but I think it would be a "tragedy" (one of Em's new words- I'll explain later) if you carved it. It's way too pretty!
