I was expecting the pumpkin to explode or something.

At first Th.'s arm was nicely camouflaged and I thought, "How the heck is Large S strong enough to sit up so straight by himself already?!"

VERY cute. Are any of those pumpkins from your garden?

I know you think I'm just saying this because I'm your friend or whatnot, but in all seriousness, you produce the most beautiful, cutest, babies I've ever seen.

Large S is so cute I kind of want to eat him. But not really. No, he's safe, really.

Horray for pumpkin season!! I am so excited to get into fall. I'm planning a big trip to a pumpkin patch in a few weeks. It's a big deal in L.A. to actually find a pumpkin patch as they are generally far out of the city but it's always worth the drive!

All four of those pumpkins are from the garden of Thteed. I am so amazed that we were actually able to grow four pumpkins...five actually. There is one more on the vine but it is still not quite ready to pick.

My original intent for this post was to show off the pumpkins not my sweet child; but thank you all for your compliments.

This year I cultivated not only an adorable child but some cute pumpkins too.

Definitely cute enough to eat. Or at least blow a few zurburts on his cute cheeks.
I have three squash, does that count?

WOW!!!! That's amazing that your pumpkins did so well. I'm jealous.

When I showed Matt the pictures telling him how cute Large S is, he said, "Well, he doesn't have an ugly face, so that's good."

That's a HUGE compliment when it comes to Matt and babies.

He also thinks Large S looks a lot more like LS than the Big O ever did.

Oh, and since we didn't grow our own pumpkins, I did buy 2 sugar pumpkins today for some future pumpkin pies.

That boy is too, too cute.

Also, I'm with Mr. Fob. And then you would have said something like, "I have a pumpkin pie made with fresh pumpkin bits. Do you have a fresh pumpkin pie?"

Cute story, lovely pumpkins, darling kid.

I have an orange pumpkin. It is about the size of a grapefruit. Do you have an orange pumpkin the size of a grapefruit? I do. It grew in my garden. The rest of the pumpkin flowers shrivelled up and died, without turning into anything orange or pumpkiny or cute. I bow to you.

I would like to list Lane Smith as a source for this post. My 'Pumpkin Story' is an homage to 'The Balloon Story' found in one of my favorite books, 'The Happy Hocky Family'. If you have never read it, go do so now.

I also want to say to mr. fob and nem, I am somewhat worried that you thought something was going to explode. What have I done in the past that made you think there would be an explosion?

Also, thank you for all your lovely compliments of the fruit of my loins.

um...when I said fruit of my loins, I was referring to Large S, not the pumpkins. The pumpkins are the fruit of my labors.

Thinking it was going to explode is an homage to the balloon story. Maybe he could just have a stem?

Ahhhh, I see. I get it now.
