In order to tell you THAT.....

I first need to point out.....

I'm giving away a Pumpkin Packet.

"What's a Pumpkin Packet," you ask???

A Pumpkin Packet.


* pumpkin recipes
* pumpkin color pages (for your kids...or kids you know!!)
* pumpkin learning activities
* a bag of candy corn pumpkins (LOVE them!)
* a pumpkin book
* a freshly-baked loaf of my favorite pumpkin bread
* and anything else pumpkiny I can think of!!

(Should I have a picture of the Pumpkin Packet right here?? Well, of course I should!! Do I have time to do that today?! Well, NO!!! So...sorry. Use your imagination. 'K?)

"How might I win such an AWESOME! prize," you ask???
