A Perfect Day for Pumpkins

I’m having a hard time believing that it’s almost Halloween. 2014 is flying by way too fast, and the fact that we’re still enjoying 80-degree summer-like weather here in the Heartland…well, it makes it feel like we’re still in the midst of summer, and not closing in on that frenzied holiday season that always seems to end the year in a rush.

Mom, Dad, and my sister Lindy and her family all came over today to hang out, watch the Huskers put the smack down on Rutgers, and decorate pumpkins with the kiddos. Odin decided to carve. Cadence opted for paint. And, well…we all had a blast.

Autumn Yard Work, Romano-style

Reason #7659 that I love my husband–He can even make yard work fun.

I stuck my head out the back door because I wanted to get a photo of the steam coming off the roof of the garage…


But it wasn’t long before something far more interesting unfolded…

This guy never fails to entertain in front of the camera.

And just in case anyone was wondering where Cadence gets all those goofy faces from…

And of course there has to be some Star Wars inspired lightsaber action…
