Birthday Pumpkin Pie

Mitch requested pumpkin pie for his birthday, a good fall dessert. The girls and I had fun making it.
Pie pumpkins we grew in our garden: After cooking it and mashing it up there was plenty for Mitch's pie and two more pies. I put the extra pumpkin in the freezer to make those two pies later.
Anna and Josie's favorite part was what they got to do with the extra pie crust dough:

My tactile little girl loves this sort of activity:

That happens to be a 'J' for Josie that you see, not a candy cane:
Singing Happy Birthday:Blowing out his candles with Ruthie trying to get them:
Happy Birthday to you, Mitch. Thanks for being the kind of person worth celebrating.
We love you.
