Pink is for Pumpkins

On Monday Allegra and I stopped over at a friend's house, and were greeted by these "gals" next to the front door.
Christine's creative teen-aged daughter painted and decorated the pumpkins.

I thought they were adorable and was happy I had my camera with me.

Didn't think to ask if she had painted them pink because October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month or because our community is going pink this coming week.

The Valley Goes Pink Week starts tomorrow...schools, businesses, and organizations have pink-themed activities planned throughout the week to benefit a $1 million fund-raising campaign to go toward construction of a breast wellness center. One town has its own group, and will give part of the proceeds from their events to national breast cancer research organizations.

I wrote a story for the paper about the pink initiative, which was published today, that you can read here.

Those piggies are precious!

I saw a lot of decorated pumpkins up in Maine and New Hampshire - they seem to really get more into that sort of thing than we do here in Connecticut.

AWE! They are so cute. Patti! What a clever daughter Christine has! And what a great idea for celebrating National Breast Cancer Month, if that's what it's for. I;m off to read the newspaper article. :)
