Here at our house, we know it is really Fall, when the Great Pumpkin light goes on the house. We have had our unique pumpkin light for many years. They are one of a kind, and only my parents and brothers and I have them. They were 76 Ball signs for a gas station at one time, and someone my Dad knew cut them in half and made them into these jack o lanterns lights. We always put ours up the first weekend in October, and keep it lit every night until after Halloween.
This full Harvest Moon couldn't be more fitting for our very first cool and fall like day!
Our little people were here this afternoon, and they shared a big pot of potato cheese soup with us. It was delish!! Here are the girls all cuddled up after their baths with Jake. What cuties!!

Being our first fall like day and all, I had to make these delicious harvest muffins. They are a favorite Weight Watchers recipe of mine, and I make them often. All you need is 1 box spice cake mix, 1 can pumpkin, NOT PIE FILLING, 1/4 cup water, and two apples, any type, cored and cut into bite sized pieces. Mix and bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Moist and yummy and VERY low in fat and calories.
Happy Harvest, from the land of endless summers and triple digits. Thank heavens we seem to have moved into the cool and breezy days of Autumn.
