Oct.31 (a card AND a recipe!)

Halloween is coming! 
We're looking forward to fall leaves, cool weather, and tasty treats this year on Halloween, because we'll be celebrating in the mountains, instead of sweaty Florida! Hooray! 
I like all things pumpkin, and cute on Halloween. So this swirly, cheery Halloween card is very ME!
Speaking of pumpkin, want to see one of my favorite fall pumpkin recipes?

Baked pumpkin oatmeal . . .totally delish, and you can make it on Sunday night and eat it all week long for breakfast!
