Kid Quotes:: Vol. 58

Uh-oh. Annabel is trying to phase out nap time....

During one of our afternoon nap time struggles

Me: (trying to shut the door and ask her as nicely as possibly to finally lay down and go to sleep)

Annabel: (yelling) It's not fair!!!  And it's dumb!!!!

she's 2

6 Jack-O-Lanterns

This might have been the first time we have ever carved pumpkins in the afternoon. It was the perfect time other than we had to wait to light them! The big boys carved their own from start to finish and Annabel and Easton got parental help, although someone (ahem Annabel) wanted to carve her own!

Pumpkin Patch::2014

It's been an interesting time for my family recently. Rand and I have been busy, busy, but feeling very blessed. Other members of my family have had the rug ripped out from under them and we have all rallied to hold them up and help carry them through some pretty hard stuff. Our annual Pumpkin Patch trip came in the middle of some really hard family stuff and now looking back, the pumpkin patch was like a short reprieve from it all.

This year it was fun to return to our old favorite Pumpkin Patch at Hunter Farms. We all hopped on the tractor wagon and rode out to the patch. Everyone was allowed to pick a pumpkin they could carry. We did hay mazes and corn mazes, checked out all the animals, and ate Olympic Mountain Ice Cream (best in the world). I'm still drooling when I think of my fall favorite, Pumpkin Praline. Mmmmmm

Pumpkin Carving Post to come!
