how i use my leftovers to donate to the school auction

Howdy, my name is Penelope Punkin.  I just love to get my hair done in an up-do and go out on the town.  Tonight, me and the girls is goin' to a Barn Party.  It's a big fund raiser for the youngin's school.

This here's my little sister Georgina, but we all call her Georgie.
This old gal is our Grandmother Esther.  She let us have all her old clothes and hats she didn't need so we could get all done up nice for our party.  She's stayin' in tonight, she don't like to leave the house.
These are turkeys.  They don't get to go out, but ain't they cute?  I hear some gal found these old things at an antique store.  The middle one is a candle that once sold for 35 cents.  I heard the old gal yellin' at her little ones quite harshly one day when they was goin' at that turkey with a match.  She saved that little waxy guy just in time.
Oh, no!  Please don't take a photo til we're all dressed!
See now?  Ain't we purty.  The lady who did our hair kept threatin' to glue googly eyes on us, but I declare that would just be tacky.
Here's Georgie again.  I love what she's done with that silver-green bow.
Grandma Esther swears she never thought her cast offs would leave the dusty closet and looky here what's goin' out on the town tonight!
This is our good friend Betty Lou.  Betty Lou likes big bows.  She nabbed that bow off the cornstalks outside.  She's clever like that.
Trisha is our cousin.  She likes to keep things simple and then add a curly cue just to make people think she's got more under that rind than they know.
Well, we're off, wish us luck.  I said goodbye to Grams.  I have a sneaking suspicion I won't be seeing her again.

You think that's should've seen the pumpkin-shaped, pumpkin-colored "cheese-ball" she made for our Harvest Party one year.

In fact, April's all about pumpkins. The first time I had her pumpkin bread, it brought tears to my eyes...literally! tasted just like my Granny's.

Wow, Lori, thanks. I can't belive you remember the cheese-ball.

You're right, I do love pumpkins.
