Pumpkin Display

Balancing Beauty posted about this display that she found on this blog. I didn't ask permission to post the photo so if y'all want me to take it down let me know. I just thought it was funny and creative.

We are having a pirate birthday party Saturday and my new 9 year old asked if we could get a bottle of rum and pour it out and fill it with tea or sprite so he could be a real pirate. Um... NO! About 3 years ago we were watching Bananza each morning. Well, Gunsmoke came on after it and we watched it a few times... until, my now 10 year old (around 7 at the time) made the comment in the car that when he grew up he was going to drink beer. I was VERY concerned and questioned him. He said that because he wanted to be a cowboy and they always drank beer. I told him that it was not good for you and how people become addicted to it and it makes people do things they normally wouldn't and all. We quit watching Gunsmoke after that. It is funny how we can overlook some things that kids pick up on. Living in a home where we don't drink I don't think to have conversations about some things- well, also, when you get to the final two you can't remember who you have told what to anymore.

I know....wasn't that just too funny. Hey - I give you permission and since I stole it from her, she gives you permission through me....hee hee. She did say it was fine.

Let me know if life slows down to talk Homemade Gourmet. Ha, that's an oximoron for us, isn't it?

Isn't it weird what kiddos pick up on?!

I got that pic in an email this past was called something about when pumpkins drink too much. Yuck!

That's such a funny picture.

Sometimes I am amazed at the things that come out of kids mouths!

That is hilarious! We're in a pumpkin carving contest every year, I'm going to have to steal the idea. Except I'll replace empty beer bottles with empty candy wrappers.
