Happy Fall!

I am loving fall break! It is so nice not having to get children up and out the door while still trying to dress yourself and putting make-up on in the car. At our house we aren't doing much of getting dressed this week. As long as we get a bath who cares what you have on. We have made pumpkin bread and even carved a pumpkin. I know it is going to be trash in a day or two but it is great entertaining and my kids love it. I love the pumpkin prayer it a lot of fun to carve! Hope you enjoy!

"Pumpkin Prayer"
{cut off top of pumpkin} Lord, open my mind so I can learn new things about you.
{remove innards} Remove the things in my life that don’t please you. Forgive the wrong things I do and help me to forgive others.
{cut open eyes} Open my eyes to see the beauty you’ve made in the world around me.
{cut out nose} I’m sorry for the times I’ve turned my nose at the good food you provide.
{cut out mouth} Let everything I say please You.
{light the candle} Lord, help me show your light to others through the things I do. Amen
