~ THE PUMPKIN PATCH ~

We had a beautiful day to go pick our pumpkins! Fall has always been my favorite time of year and this year the weather has been just perfect! We went to a new pumpkin patch this year and I was surprised that they were still on the vines! We had to pull and twist to free our pumpkins ~ yes, we had to work for our pumpkins this year.
*Not every pumpkin was on the vine ~ "A" was reading my post and didn't want me to mislead everyone ~ my apologies :)
Let's hope the Christmas card photo
is an improvement on this!
Gotta love them though :)

The two who started it all :)


Big brother watches out for his sister

(Notice Mia carrying a goodie bag filled
with plastic soldiers and 2 pocketbooks!)

Happy to have found THE one!

Awww, now this is better
My kids :)

So proud of his pumpkin!

My big boy and his big pumpkin

Mia seemed so tired this day, but she found
a real nice pumpkin!

Pull honey!

Little, big brother helps her out
Can you see his expression?
He's working so hard!

Mommy loves you guys!
Isn't that cool the way the vines
are wrapped around it?!
This would be a photo of my bag
amongst the pumpkins. . .
it almost stayed behind!
Oh, I almost left my bag in the middle of a pumpkin patch! I realized after we walked all the way back to the stand ~ we were pretty far into the patch ~ that I was missing my bag! My little Eddie ran back with me through the vines and pumpkins . I was out of breathe when we finally reached it, whew what a relief! Of course, I had to take a picture (it is a sickness, I believe!)

It is so amazing that we went pumpkin picking with short sleeves on this year...I must say I love it! I really liked all the pictures so much! I have a strong feeling your holiday shot will be a success this year! I love how Mia is carrying all her important items with her lol! So adorable!

Isn't it so fun to actually "pick" the pumpkins? I love the photo of you and hubby.

THANK YOU so much for your sweet e-mail this week. I was thrilled to hear from you. We have had on again off again internet so I haven't answered e-mails but it made me feel so much better to see that i am not alone. Hope Mia calms down soon too:)
