Nice, relaxing, October weekend.

We got alot accomplished this weekend, besides having fun! Friday night, I had a 'ghouls night out' with three crazy fun girls! We went to Tuachan Theatre to see the annual Thriller preformance that Odessy Dance Company puts on. It was AWESOME! I loved it, and can't wait to go again next year!!

Saturday, Josh and I cleaned out the garage, and got the air hockey table up and running. I think it entertained all four of our kids for 5 straight hours! After all the work, we cooked up a delicious German meal, and Josh and I had a little date night. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, couch, sharing a king size Twix= my favorite way to unwind.

Sunday, we all snuggled under our california king duvet and watched Sword in the Stone, then carved pumpkins, and made roasted seeds. But, I am going to have to say that my favorite part about THIS weekend, was Jaxon learning the truffle shuffle :-D

Can you even see them?

Saylor wanted me to take a picture of her baby seed.

Jax couldn't wait to get dressed after bathtime, to eat seeds!!

He would rather color than gut pumpkins.

git it gurl!

Mazzie trying to bite through her pumpkin.

Erik, pre-carved.

mmmmmmmmmmmmm. I have a killer recipe. No joke.
We carved our pumpkins without templates. Can you tell? Eh, it was probably more fun thatway. From left to right : Erik's bat, Makenzie's kitty, Saylor's original pumpkin face HOWEVER it has a bow (can you tell?), and Jaxon's little bat.

Tess!! Here ya go!

1 1/2 TB. butter (but I use olive oil instead)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. garlic salt (but I use about 1 tsp-the more the yummier)
2 TB. Worstershire sauce
2 C. pumpkin seeds

mix everything together in a bowl, and throw it on a cookie sheet at 300 degrees for about an hour (or until seeds are light brown). I check at about 45 minutes.
