Percy the Pumpkin

Every Halloween it is a Casebolt family tradition to carve a pumpkin. Ok, when I say it's a tradition, this is our third Halloween together and c'mon, who doesn't carve a pumpkin at Halloween? Call it whatever you like, it's fun to do! Jason decided this year to add to the tradition by frying up some pineapples and topping them with brown sugar. YUMMY! Now he will have to make them every year, because they were that good. We also roasted the seeds, which is a first for me. :) Neither of us is very original so we did our pumpkin up in the good ol' fashioned jack-o-lantern style. But hey, he's cute, and he shall be henceforth known as Percy, Percy the Pumpkin.

Fall is here!

Redmond is so beautiful right now! The sun has been shining and all of the deciduous trees are bursting with color. I think it's especially beautiful when you can contrast the bright red maple tree leaves with the rich green pines that are right behind them. Ah.... it's so romantic! I gotta bust out my watercolors and try another sad attempt at capturing this!
Jason and I went on a little walk the other day on a trail by our house. I was stopping and taking so many pictures that Jason finally turned to me, exasperated, and said, " Are you going to talk to me or just take pictures??" Poor kid. He lives with such an eccentric wife! I can't help it that I am drawn to beauty! I wish everyone could see it the way I do. Or that I at least had some sort of device capable of capturing the essence of fall in Redmond right now.
