Poor pumpkin saw. You never had a chance.

A story through pictures...

Twin B: "Holy crap! Mom is giving me some sort of cutting instrument. Grandpa would be proud. Why am I wearing this ONE glove? Am I turning into Michael Jackson?"

Twin A: "Eeew. This is like, so gross. Pickles!! What are you putting in my hair?!"

Twin B: "Mom, take the damn picture. My face is gonna get stuck like this (*note* 3 yr old does not actually curse....yet)."
Pickles: "Hey pumpkin, come here often? How's about I lick you all over?"

Pickles: "If a big sister and a pumpkin are pushed off the table at the same time, which one will hit the ground first?"

Pickles: "Mom, you said you did want me to dump the pumpkin seeds all over the place?!"

Me: "Dude (sometimes referred to as the husband), why is your knife broken?"

Dude (Smiling smugly): "Girl, my muscles are way bigger than yours. Not my fault the knife couldn't handle it."

Me: "Oh, thanks for clearing that up. You owe me ninety-nine cents."

True story.
P.S. It was recently brought to my attention that not everyone knows you can toast and eat pumpkin seeds?! Is this possible??
Anyway, it's super easy: Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
Rinse your seeds, remove all the yuckies (aka pulp). Spray your pan with some non stick cooking spray and spread in a single layer. Throw some salt on 'dem bad boys and pop 'em in for 25 mins. Stir after 10 mins.
Other ideas:
*sprinkle with parmesean cheese and garlic salt
*cinnamon and sugar
*Tony Chacheres (if you don't know what that is, too damn bad)
*Pumpkin pie spice

Ha, tell nick we will arm wrestle next time we party it up, cause I must be one bad mo-fo. I broke a steak knife last week. Ask him how he likes them apples! I will admit I was using it to try to open the back of a toy. Though I told Morgan it broke cause it didnt listen to momma and I sent it to time out and it got brokey. It was in the context of something she was doing... dont recall particulars. Anywhoser, tell Nick he better be pumpin some iron before said visit, cause hes in for it.
