The Great Pumpkin

Growing up, fall was not my favorite time of year. Of course I loved dressing up for Halloween and going out to trick-or-treat, but I didn't enjoy the season very much. Now that I am older and living in the south, I have a lot more respect for this time of year. A lot of it has to do with the fact that I miss the northern fall season. I miss the cool weather, flannel, the changing of the leaves, raking the leaves and jumping into the piles, just to rake them over and over again, going to the pumpkin patch, and so much more. Don't get me wrong...a lot of this happens in the south, it's just not the same having to wait until the week before Halloween to carve my pumpkin for fear that the HOT temperatures will kill my pumpkin with a not so slow death. I mean come on now, I actually put on a bathing suit and laid in the sun in my backyard and got some color! It's a hot one down here! Anyway, back on topic. I do love fall and pumpkins and all the beautiful colors! I am in the process of all of my fall treats and just wanted to share my Jack-o-lantern Cake Pops!
