Sometimes Life Hands You Pumpkin Seeds

So, I said to myself, what are you thinking? You went to the fair yesterday, you had card class until the wee hours of the morning, you showed houses all morning. . . why did you promise your kids you would take them to the Estrella Hills Pumpkin Festival? Because, I say, I am a glutten for punishment and I don't know when to say when! BUT. . . in this case life handed me pumpkin seeds. You see, this fair was a charity event (and although I still haven't recovered from the closing of the Duncan Family Farms Pumpkin Festival--and the doom of our family tradition--)I was happy for a poor imitation. I was even happier when I discovered that my kids all got carve a pumpkin for the price of a small donation. So, you see, pumpkins carved, happy kids, and no cleaning up pumpkin guts for me! So it's not lemonade, but I'll take the pumpkin seeds!

Sounds like the way to do it!! Looks like they had a ball - totally makes it worth it, huh? Okay ... maybe not in the stressful moment ... but afterward :)
