the light is amazing these days. i love sunsets in the fall. and i love to walk in that hour up until sunset, especially when it's through the field behind the garden, passing by the neighbor's pumpkin harvest. yup, we've got some too. i spent a good part of a weekend a while back cooking pumpkins and freazing down. we'll have pumpkin soup this winter.
the kids like pumpkin too. maybe more to climb them than to eat them, because they are huge. and they love to be picked up by another neighbor passing by in his tractor. couldn't be better.
today we celebrated their fifth birthday. that is so big in so many ways. we had a good day, without pumpkin climbing though. i always have this nostalgic, sentimental feeling on their birthdays. it puts everything into perspective, brings back time and memories. i wonder if it will always be like that.
