How Martha!

Today I must have been feeling especially crafty because Isla and I spent the afternoon creating and assembling these fun Halloween treats! 

We were invited to our friend Jackson's Halloween party. Jackson is a little guy we met at the park way back in August and we have been hanging out with him and his mom Wyatt every so often. So while Roscoe slept the afternoon away, Isla and I got out the paring knife and fruit and went to town. I won't and can't take any credit for the idea. I saw it in a magazine and thought it would be a fun contribution to the afternoon party. 

It was Isla's job to stuff the orange-o-lanterns with grapes and apple slices while I carved little faces into them and scooped out their juicy innards. We still have the daunting task of carving our pumpkin this week. Remember the gigantic pumpkin that we picked from the patch a few weeks ago? It is sitting out on our front step just waiting to be transformed into something hopefully a little more unique looking than these orange faces.

Me too and it has not even been a week since we were in Logan!
Very warm here in Yuma 34C today.
Something going on with my eating. Can hardly eat anything without blowing up like a balloon, very uncomfortable to say the least!
After lying down for awhile it goes away! Maybe I should just stop eating!!!!!!!!!!!
