Just Call Me Betty Crocker

In true hometown spirit, we are heading out to our local farm and participating in their annual fall festival this morning.

I cannot wait...but am slightly disappointed that E.'s adorable pumpkin sweater will not be making an appearance due to the extreme heat here. Please let Fall come soon!

Along with hayrides, pony rides, arts and crafts, and hopefully some kettle corn; our family is also participating in a local baking contest. I am currently in the long process of making my Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls to enter in the "Over 14 Something Pumpkin" contest. I contemplated putting Isaac's name on the entry simply so we could be in the younger category and have a better chance at winning, but I didn't think that would be very realistic.

Wish us luck! The grand prize is free tickets on the local train....a real treat to Miss E.!

I feel the need to defend myself with reference to my first comment in over 500 blogs. I am a VERY faithful reader of Lynley's blog, especially those entries with pictures of my adorable, highly-intelligent, and extremely photogenic grandchildren. Those entries are read and re-read with extreme interest. I, too, am especially interested to taste the pumpkin cinnamon rolls.

Good luck! You will do great!

I just read your previous post about books.

I just finished the Story of Edgar Sawtelle last night. It is Oprah's book club pick. It is good, but a heavy 600 page read. I am not sure if that is what you are wanting.

I always love Jodi Picoult and Meg cabot books. Meg's are romantic comedy (I recommend Boy Next Door or Boy Meets Girl) and Jodi's are mystery with a twist. (I recommend Plain Truth, 19 minutes, and My sister's Keeper)

I also just read The Secret Life of Bees and it was really good too. It is about to be a movie with Queen Latifah, Jennifer Hudson, and Dakota Fanning.

Happy Reading and vacation!

Oh, and I LOVE the Twilight series if you haven't read it
