The cozy feelings that Autumn evokes are what I love so much about the season, with the warm hues of yellow, orange and red leaves on the trees and the glow of a toasty fire offering respite from the crispness of the air and the darker nights. And, it's hard to not get excited about all that is ahead...favorite fall recipes, the holidays, and wool sweaters to keep us warm.
We've been storing our pumpkins on the mantle. We'll use them one by one in the coziest of recipes.
Here's our favorite pumpkin. After carving Graham's and Margaret's names on it we've watched it grow through summer into fall. We'll bake a pumpkin birthday cake for their one-year birthdays next month.
Even a wooden giraffe enjoys a nice fall fire.
