Fall is a beautiful time of year.  The leaves change colors and fall. The apples are ripe for the picking. The air becomes crisp. It is the start of the new school year and other new beginnings. Ducky and the gang love fall. They enjoy playing in the leaves, apple picking, and most of all Halloween. Every year, they go to a local pumpkin patch and pick the perfect pumpkin for carving. Unfortunately, in Israel we don’t know where a pumpkin patch is, and the local stores do not have traditional American style pumpkins. Then today at the grocery stores, we saw the cutest little acorn squash! They are perfect for DtPb, and helped get them get into the holiday spirit! Plus later tonight the humans are making pumpkin spice cookies (from the US!).

Happy Fall!

“Wait a minute, these aren’t pumpkins!” -Ducky “Nope, but they are gourds.” -Pembleton “What’s a gourd?” -Ducky

*Sorry we haven’t been blogging like we would like. We enjoy Ducky Adventures so much! But this past year has been very difficult (with cancer on both sides of the family and the passing of Laura’s mom). While we’ve been dealing with a lot, it’s time to start up the Ducky blog again.Thanks to everyone for being patient and spread the word- Ducky and the gang are back!

(*Dear readers, sorry we have not been posting regularly. We have had lots of family visiting and have been traveling a lot. we hope to be posting more regularly soon.)

Halloween is tomorrow and Ducky and the Gang are not sure what their costume should be. There are so many great options: Super Heroes, Monsters, Army men, Ninjas, Fruit?!?! The list is endless.  Here are some Halloween pictures from the past. Hopefully they decide soon! Halloween is tomorrow!

Pembleton wants to remind everyone to be extra safe on Halloween.

Here is a great website to help families stay safe and healthy on Halloween!

Halloween Safety Tips from the CDC

Last night the gang had a great time trick or treating. They got lots of candy, treats, and other sweet surprises. They also had the best costumes in the neighborhood.

When they got home, they were not quite ready for bed. After their baths, the humans popped them some popcorn, and put in the movie Hocus Pocus. Shortly after the movie started, Rumpelstiltskin came out of the kitchen with a PB&J and joined them. Only Rumpelstiltskin stayed awake for the whole movie. I guess they will have to watch it again next year.

This Halloween picking out the right costume wasn’t easy. There were so many good ones to choose from. But once the gang knew what they wanted, it was unanimous. Ducky would be Mr. Incredible. Ted and Blizzard both wanted to be Dash. And Pembleton wanted to be Frozone.

We hope every one has a safe and fun Halloween.

With Halloween only 12 days away, Ducky and the gang are already in the holiday spirit. Last night they decided to watch one of their favorite Halloween movies, Casper the Friendly Ghost.  Earlier that day, Ducky had to take a physical education test where he had to run, do jumping jacks, and somersaults. Ducky was quite exhausted and was heavy eyed during the movie. Before he knew it, he was snoozing.

In his dream, he saw four super cute ghosts in front of a large house. The first one who was quite round said “I’m hungry.” The second ghost, who was tall and thin, said “Tonight is a great night to use my telescope. Look at how full the moon is.” The two little ghosts just giggled and waved as they chased each other. When Ducky woke up, he wondered why the ghost from his dream were so familiar, but then he realized he was hungry. So he went and got a snack.

“I’m hungry, can ghosts eat?”

Every year around this time, the gang goes out to find their pumpkin friend named Jack. This weekend they found him! Ducky, Pembleton and the rest of the gang are so excited to have Jack back.

Jack has not been carved yet, but they all have their thinking caps on and are coming up with ideas. How do you think Jack should be carved?

(Leave your ideas in the comment box!)

Here are some pictures from last year. They went with the traditional look.

Happy DUCKTOBER!
