I went to a local pumpkin patch in Richland, Michigan to find the perfect pumpkins to carve.

Heather McGregor came over to my place last night and we carved pumpkins and baked the delicious pumpkin seeds.  Pumpkin is known to be good for dogs so Heather spoiled my dog Stella and let her chew on the top of hers.  The pictures are adorable.
