Happy Howlaween!

"I'll put a spell on you my pretties...."

Farm fresh, homegrown pumpkins by my Dad!

Double, double, toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake
In the cauldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg and owlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth, boil and bubble.
Double, double, toil and trouble;
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.
William Shakespeare
Trick or Treat!

Happy Halloween from Wolfe Farms!

Kisses for Daddy...

"Oh, Mommy has the camera, gotta pose!"

Every night Fuji sits next to James and tries to sneak in kisses and snuggles...attacking him! He has been teaching her to say "I love you"....the other night I so wish I'd recorded it because it was clear as day like a person saying it! Such a smart puppy!

My Snugglers!:)

Happy DOT!!
