on the table, 

by the front door,

carved up nice and, um, pretty...
and {my favorite} all up in FOOD!

ive seen several different pumpkin recipes recently i would love to try.
pumpkin is such a versatile ingredient 
{as is chocolate, but that is a post all on its own... :) }
here are just a few to put you in the pumpkin-in mood:

and for all my gluten-free friends, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies via glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com

 what? i just listed about ten desserts you can make with pumpkin and you were hoping for something that contained a little less sugar? well maybe you should have your head checked because what is better than a delicious pumpkin-themed sweet?!?   
oh.  well heres a healthy recipe for pumpkin soup via cookinglight
ok it really does sound good and i might just try it soon.  
BUT my sweet tooth is O.O.C. {thats "out of control" by the way [mom]}

emory says: "out. of. control."

here is a recipe {via pioneer woman} for making your own

and just in case you STILL want more, 
i even found a blog completely devoted to pumpkin recipes.  
for realz

and now, just to be fair after posting all those sugary pumpkin-y recipes, 
i have to show you what may happen if your mother consumes 
said sugary treats whilst you are still ... unborn...
