pumpkin party!!

last week we invited some friends over to carve pumpkins and to celebrate our being a little more settled in our new home. i had planned on making a big pot of soup, some cider, and donuts but it ended up being ninety degrees. thankfully it cooled off quite a bit as evening drew nearer and we were even able to have a fire in our backyard. i love our new home and the fact that it feels so quiet even though we are still in such a big city. there is nothing quite like a gaggle of kids running from the front yard to the backyard, being silly, and having a good time together. so grateful for this life.

  1. Aww, so fun! I should think about having a pumpkin carving party here in Sicily. We have plenty of American friends on base that would enjoy doing that with us, and it might feel a little more like being "home" while we're also enjoying being away from home!
