Have A Great Pumpkin Weekend, Charlie Brown!

There was frost on the roofs out here this morning. The thermometer said it was 39 degrees outside when we drove to school!

Today will be filled with running errands, then tonight we go to A's school carnival. Last night, she and I baked a cake for the cake walk and for extra credit (as long as she helped, she gets a 100). I had her dad explain the importance of exact measurements in chemistry. He has first hand knowledge that the difference between 1 1/3 cups of liquid and 1 1/2 cups will cause a cake to become pudding! So she has something to share with the class.

Tomorrow, we go to the MIL's house to carve pumpkins, which is always a messy business. But it's fun, and A gets to spend time with her grandparents (and others). Then Sunday, I do believe we will laze around the house. Want your own pumpkin? Click on the image.

It's a full moon night, with the moon close to the Earth. You might also be able to see the shuttle and the space station. The sky will be clear as a bell, and it's going to be be COLD. I guess our very short summer weather is gone until December! Hah! I actually have a picture of N from second grade, in which she is holding the gingerbread house they made in school for Christmas. She's wearing shorts.

Happy weekend!
