The Great Pumpkin…shortage

Did ya’ll know there is a pumpkin shortage? Well there is. Like, not even an empty spot on the shelf for cans to go shortage! After searching every single grocery store on the west side on Indianapolis I went to facebook to declare that there was officially no pumpkin to be found. I found out from friends that there was definitely a pumpkin shortage here in the good old US of A. I got wind of pumpkin being sold on ebay so I had to check it out…two cans for $16 plus shipping…

As it turns out the great pumpkin shortage of 2010 is due to a bad crop last year.

I guess we will be waiting to make pumpkin bread for a while….

And of course here are some pictures of Liam from today. We went shopping this afternoon with his friend Sage and her Mom Sara. Liam though taking a quick 20 minute nap on the ride home was enough for the rest of the day…. So around 5:30 we ran to get milk at the grocery store and this is what happened on the 5 minute ride home…

Oh wow, I had no idea there was a shortage. The things you learn reading blogs! Guess I'll stock up if/when I see some because I LOVE all things pumpkin. :-)
