Block of the Month Calendar: October


When I think of October, I think pumpkins.   Pumpkin cookies, pumpkin muffins, carving pumpkins… pumpkin anything, actually!  I live in Michigan, so we are blessed with beautiful color in the fall.  It’s my favorite time of year!

For our October block, I chose “The Pumpkin Family.”  This is a flexible block; my pumpkin family doesn’t need to look like your pumpkin family!  Since this goes on Jacob and Samantha’s calendar that hangs on their kitchen/dining room wall, I wanted something cheerful that represented them.  So in the back row of this block we have Daddy, Mommy, Samantha, and in the front we have Jacob.  Sean is rarely without his Detroit Tigers hat.  Kim has on lipstick, Samantha has cute little pumkin’ curls, and Jacob is looking at Mommy for advice.  Who is in your family?  Jazz up your block to make it uniquely yours.
