Pumpkin Party


I'm joining Beth from Food as Art who is hosting a pumpkin party today.

This is our youngest grandchild Sam two years ago when he went trick or treating.
Doesn't he make a sweet little pumpkin?

We've never grown pumpkins, but we do like to eat pumpkin pie with whipped cream and other desserts. 

Pumpkin Pie Squares
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
1 cup chopped pecans
1-14 oz can pumpkin
1 can Eagle Brand
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. each ginger and cinnamon
1 cup coconut
Combine the flour, oats and brown sugar then cut in the butter until crumbly, stir in the pecans.
Press evenly into a 9 x 13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Combine the remaining ingredients except the coconut.
Pour over the baked base in the pan and sprinkle with the coconut.
Return to the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
Enjoy with a dollop of whipped cream.

The onset of autumn is the perfect time to bring out pumpkins for decor outside......

And inside.

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate,
The first one said,
"Oh my, it's getting late."
The second one said,
"But we don't care."
The third one said,
"I see witches in the air."
The fourth one said,
"Let's run, and run, and run."
The fifth one said,
"Get ready for some fun."
Then whoosh went the wind,
and out went the lights,
And five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!

This is Sam's sister Mia who wore the pumpkin costume first 5 years ago.
Could it be that she's a ham for the camera?


  1. Hi Judith, love your cute little Pumpkin People!

    re the pie recipe, what's Eagle Brand? I'm planning to make a pumpkin pie this week, and your recipe looks inviting.

  2. Hi Judith,
    What fun! Your little grandchildren are so adorable! Isn't it nice that they both get to be a pumpkin! I enjoy pumpkin anything too! Have a beautiful day, my dear friend.


  3. Everything is so cute! Sam's adorable, great poem and your pumpkin pie squares sound yummy:@)

  4. Mia & Sam are absolutely A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E in their pumpkin costumes!! My DD was dressed as a pumpkin as an infant some 40 yrs ago & has been nicknamed "Punky" ever since! LOL

    Great photos!

  5. The look on Sam and Mia's faces is EXACTLY why I love Halloween!

  6. What fun fall pumpkin decorations! Your de-light-ful pumpkins on top would go well with a snowman I once had. The pumpkin pie squares sound quite yummy. And your grandchildren in their costumes are the best treat of all! :) Thanks for a lovely blog party visit full of fall pumpkin decorations and treats!

  7. You have such cute grandchildren. All your pumpkins are very pretty, but I especially like the lighted one. Great idea about putting them in the bird feeder too. I might have to try that one nex year!

  8. Sam and Mia are the cutest pumpkins! I like your pumpkins in the wire basket outside. Your Pumpkin bars sound good! I've never seen coconut and pumpkin used together but I intend to try these - pumpkin is perfect for fall and even winter desserts. It doesn't trump chocolate, of course, but it comes close! Thanks for joining the Pumpkin Party, Judith!
    Blessings, Beth

  9. Oh Judith he is so cute. Happy Halloween.

  10. Thanks for the wonderful photos and poetry! Love the wee pumpkin pie! - Please do drop by our pimpkin Party!

  11. Sooo Adorable! One of my boys was a pumpkin too when he was little! What great memories! This is just so precious!

  12. Love the pumpkin kids ... the recipes sounds really good ... thanks for sharing

  13. What cute pumpkins the grandkids are! I love that costume. Your pumpkins outside are really great with that crow on top. We always grow pumpkins and usually get one per plant. This year we grew from seeds of a big one we carved and it grew a huge pumpkin. Love to pick them with the grand kiddies.

  14. What cuties! Halloween is so much fun with cute costumes! Enjoy! ♥

  15. Your grandchildren are adorable! I love the Five little pumpkin poem. I taught it to my 3yr. old grandson last week. We made puppets to act it out... such fun!
    The pumpkin pie squares sound wonderful.Makes me hungry just reading it, lol.

  16. Those little pumpkins are adorable!
    Thanks for the recipe!

  17. How fun! Sam and Mia are so cute! I am grabbing a recipe card to write down your wonderful recipe - it sounds fantastic!
    Hope you have a lovely day, Judith!

  18. That is one cutie pumpkin you have there!!!
