Ha ha. This sign. Ohhhh, this sign.

I also like to put out seasonal photos of the kids during different holidays. The photos on the left are of my oldest son, nine years ago at our friend's pumpkin farm. I also have various Halloween costume photos and other pumpkin patch photos throughout the house this time of the year.
