Happy Fall, Y'all

                    Happy Fall, Y'all

This is the pumpkin my brother Andrew and I designed.
Well, after a long and hot summer fall has finally come. I always look forward to autumn because it's not too hot and it's not too cold. I like autumn because it's perfect weather for being outside, reading books near a fire, and being thankful for what God has given us. One of my family's fall traditions is to carve pumpkins. Dad has always been our chief pumpkin carver. After we draw up the plans for the way we want our pumpkins to look, dad will carve them. No matter what  the design is, they always look just like our designs-if not better. When we finish carving our pumpkins, we butter and salt the pumpkin seeds and toast them in the oven. Another  fall tradition of ours is to go to the Dallas Arboretum and look at their magnificent pumpkin displays. My favorite types of pumpkins are the really small  Jack be little and the big Atlantic Giant pumpkins. If you live near Dallas you should definitely go to the Arboretum and see them.

My all time favorite autumn food would probably be Pumpkin bread. I enjoy pumpkin bread because it is a very healthy bread. The bread has canned pumpkin, raisins, and walnuts in its loaves  Instead of  using a regular loaf pan, I bake the bread in a mini loaf pan, that way I can bake more loaves to give to neighbors and family members.
