Special time

I love when J and I have one on one time doing something crafty/fun. She is definetely a child that likes to have things going on and the more things we have planned the easier the day seems to go. For me on the other hand, the more tired I become...hee hee!

Last week, I purchased some seeds, pots and potting soil. For the past 5 years, I have planted pumpkins/gourds. We have a lot of critters in our area so a fruit/veggie garden is out of the question for us. I love planting my pumpkins every year and I really enjoy watching the grow. It has become a tradition for me. In the past I have bought plants but this year I am trying my hand from the beginning. I am sure when the time comes to harvest them, it will be equally as fun. Since, I love pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, it was a natural decision to get the baking kind. Can you smell it, the fall air and some warm cookies? I can.
