We took the kids (and their fangs) to the Pumpkin Patch the other night after school, we let them pick out pumpkins to carve. Little did we know, they would later abandon us about 3 seconds after we started carving pumpkins, leaving Ryan and I do finish the rest. Oh well, we sure had fun running around picking out the perfect pumpkins.
Colton tried to pick up every pumpkin and then carried them to this wheelbarrow he spotted at the front of the tent. Meanwhile, I was watching Kelsey like a hawk as she picked up her pumpkins. You see, last week our kitchen stool fell on her big toe – which lead to lots of bleeding, stitches and painful shots. The mommy in me could just picture her picking up a pumpkin and then dropping it on her toe (she didn’t) but that’s all I was focused on.
The crisp air, the fall colors … I love all of this excitement around the holidays because after today we are that much closer to Christmas! Happy Halloween, everyone. Be safe, eat lots of sugar, and enjoy the last day of October.
