My Little Pumpkin
by Karla ° Wednesday, October 31, 2007
The arrival of the Fall season has taken me by surprise this year.

All of a sudden the warmth of summer’s yellow sun is gone, and beyond the glass in my window pane is autumn, breezing on by in her seasonably fashionable harvest dress of brilliant flame and copper hues, leaving befrosted paths of fallen leaves in her wake.

The chill in the air has triggered cravings for hearty bowls of butternut squash soup and large mugs filled with steaming cocoa.

For Halloween this year, I am dying my hair a wildly subdued shade of toasted almond, and dressing up as a suburban hausfrau who wears fitted tees and yoga pants, who ironically, does not do yoga. Ever.

Mark went to work today dressed as a corporate employee in a fitted oxford shirt with cufflinks. Tonight, Nate is going Trick or Treating at a few of the neighbours homes dressed as an orange pumpkin. The originality in this family is mind boggling, I know.

Adorable, no?

If you ask me, the pumpkin costume is a right of passage for small children everywhere. Sure, they may look back on the photos ten years from now and moan, but who cares? They are just so darn cute!

My little one is going to be a pumpkin too. I can't wait to post the photos! BTW, Nathan is adorable!

Completely and utterly adorable. And should be a writer!!! You have talent.

You guys have a Happy Halloween.

Nate is a doll...those little teeth are the cutest.

I went trick-or-treating as a very uncomfortable pregnant lady. Porgie went as a duck. She was WAY cuter than her momma.

Pumpkins must be in for first-timers this year.

Hey, I was a suburban wife/mom for Halloween, too! No yoga pants here, though, it was all about the jeans!

I love Nate and his costume...and I can tell he loves it, too! Look at that smile!
