Jenn’s 27th Birthday 2006

(a.k.a. Happy Birthday to me!)

While I don’t have any fancy party to show you today,
I do have a generous heap of randomness ever-so-slightly related to my 27th birthday.
Just 4 days before my birthday the fellas from the church came to tear down my mom’s garage.

First it looked like this:



And then this:

And finally this: 

On my 27th birthday mom and I went shopping.
While we were in T.J. Maxx I found my long lost twin.
A pumpkin with crazy oogley eyes just like me!


And then we found a Santa Claus that was taller than my mom!
(Which isn’t hard to do since she’s less than 5 ft tall!)



5 days after my birthday Cool Daddy and I flew down to Florida to visit my grandparents.
We went to Old Town and had another photo taken at Instant Ancestors.

While we were waiting for the photos to process or print or something like that, I spotted my twin again!

All these years, I thought it was the same exact pumpkin.
However, while gathering the photos for this blog a secret was revealed.
Upon closer inspection I realized that the pumpkins, although similar, are not exactly the same.

Let’s take a closer look, shall we?
Pumpkin 1 has green legs while Pumpkin 2 has a purple skirt!
Pumpkin 2 has a green leafy something above its left eye while Pumpkin 1 does not!
And lastly Pumpkin 1 appears to have some dimension to her features (slightly cut-out nose/mouth)
while Pumpkin 2 appears to have said features only painted on.


So what does it all mean? Triplets!!! Oh yes, ma’am.
My name is Jenn and I have two Pumpkin sisters!

When we returned home from FL I had another fun day out with my mom.
We were embracing fall in all of it’s autumnful glory and
visiting fruit markets where we purchased interesting looking gourds. 


Then we went to this little local place for lunch.  I ordered a yummy sounding sandwich that was supposed to have roasted red peppers on it.  I was half way through my sandwich and snotting all over myself with a sweaty upper lip before I realized that there was some sort of hot peppers (and not roasted red peppers) in my sandwich.  I then preceded to go home and have a bad cold for a week.

And now you may go about your day. Enjoy.

  1. Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. Means a lot to me 🙂

    I LOVE apple butter, too!! Yummy!!

    Take care 🙂


    • Thanks! I appreciate the visits and comments too. I love your blog. Your little one is so cute!

      I still haven’t gotten any apple butter yet this season, I’m going through withdrawal…


  2. Love the Instant Ancestors photo!!! I’ve always wanted to do that. We have a place like that in a cute little town 20 minutes from where I live. (I’ve written about it {Richmond} in my blog many times). Unfortunately I’m sure nothing would fit me or my guy. Him being 6ft6 and me being 4ft9 hehe. Plus it wouldn’t have the same feel to it, me being in little girl clothes. hahaha

    Anyway just stopped by to share some bloggy love with you since you found me and followed! Thanks so much by the way. 😀 Oh and a big…..


    to you. 😀 Hope you have a splendid day.


    • Thanks, Kirsty! The Instant Ancestors are so much fun, I can’t wait to get some taken with my daughter!

      Wow, that’s quite a height difference. My husband is 6’3 and I’m 5’1 and I thought that was a big difference! They leave the costumes open in the back & use clamps and pins and things. They don’t fit perfectly. You might be able to find something to wear 🙂

      Thanks again, my birthday was great!
