Happy Halloween!

Pumpkin patch desgin - witch on a broomstick
Mommy really likes Halloween, especially the decorating part of it.  Last year, after talking about it for a couple years, she found plastic pumpkins that can be filled with toys or candies (from Oriental Trading Company, but it doesn't look like they have them this year) and made a pumpkin patch shaped like a Jack-o'Lantern on the front lawn for trick-or-treaters.

We don't get many trick-or-treaters, so she has plenty of pumpkins leftover for this year, all filled with toys (also left from last year).  The photo is of this year's pumpkin patch... pumpkins will be added this afternoon, around when trick-or-treating starts.  Count Pumpcula is guarding it until then.

The Plush Bunny 
As you can see from my photo, I am, in fact, a plush bunny.  My name is Barbara, and I live in a house with many other stuffed animals, 3 real cats (Mr. M, Miss D and Miss J) and 3 people (Mommy, Daddy and Sissy).  By starting a blog, I'm helping Mommy write occasionally (hopefully regularly) and get into a consistent writing habit.  She's got lots of opinions, so you'd think it wouldn't be hard to write regularly!

I have some opinions too:
  • in the upcoming U.S. presidential election, I support whoever will grow (and share) the most carrots,
  • I think it would be a good idea to share some of those carrots with the people affected by Hurricane Sandy,
  • I think everybody should get a hug from somebody they love at least once a day.
That's it for now... I think Mommy's signing me up for NaBloPoMo, so hopefully you'll see a lot more posts here soon!
