Pumpkin Yum-o!

It's a favorite in our family during fall. Pumpkin Pie! It's been a few years, back when we started making trips to the pumpkin patch in preschool that I was handed a recipe for scratch pumpkin pie. If you bought a pie pumpkin you received their family recipe. There is a bounty stock of puree in our freezer that is used for our Thanksgiving pumpkin pie! It is the best ever! Yum-O!

Now that I've got our minds and taste buds wandering around our memories of past pies, I'm going to switch it up and move to the theme this week for the Stampendous team. Pumpkins!!!!!! Bet that wasn't a surprise being my intro and it's the last day of the theme week. Haha.

I'm sharing this Eek A Boo card I made a few weeks back for the All In One theme. It's a pumpkin for Halloween sort and these characters were so fun to color.
