This weekend, I hauled all the Halloween stuff out of the attic. Helene and I went shopping for a few new things, and put up Halloween decorations in front of the house.

We went to a pumpkin patch, did all the requisite pumpkin patchy things, procured a car trunkful of serious decorative gourds, hauled them all home, and put them all over our house.
Then, we went to the garden center, bought spring bulbs, and planted a crap ton of them until we were tired of it. We also got one more eeny weeny decorative gourd - a WHITE one, because somehow we didn't get a white pumpkin in the mothereffing wagonload of pumpkins that we already got that day.
THEN, I baked an apple pie and drank organic, free range, local apple cider WHILE I MADE THE PIE.
(Also, pumpkin patches and fall days and small children are about the most photogenic things EVER, amirite?)
If that isn't fall as fuck, I don't know what is.
