Cooking up a storm

Today I am preparing for my family's Thanksgiving dinner, and tomorrow we will gather around the table and give thanks for all our many blessings.

But after the plates are cleared the Christmas decorating will begin.

These pictures are from last year.

Just A Bunch of Pumpkins

Pumpkin: a squash or gourd-like fruit commonly used during the Autumn season for decorations or for making deserts.
 I must confess:
 I have a slight obsession for pumpkins (or so Mr. SB says.....) how could he possibly think this?

Could it be because I have those sweet little oddly shaped gourds all over the house? Perhaps...

Let's have a look around the house and see for ourself. 

There are pumpkins on a coffee table

and a jack-0-lantern in the foyer

and little ones on the dinning room table, see
Tom Turkey is nestled in between a bunch of pumpkins.

There are grapevine pumpkins

and shiny pumpkins

and even pumpkins with bows.

There are pumpkins inside lanterns,

 in the foyer and in a mudroom.

There are green ones and brown ones

and even orange ones.

There are pumpkins up high on a shelf

and down low on a shelf,

and all around the shelf.

 There are even pictures of pumpkins sitting on a shelf.

There are pumpkins behind doors,

and pumpkins in a basket with green gourds.

And finally there is even a basket full of pumpkins.....

placed beneath a shelf.

Someone please contact Pumpkins Anonymous I think I need help!
Thanks for visiting,
The pumpkins will soon be returned to storage and the Christmas obsession will be revealed ;) See you soon!
