Pumpkin Patch Cutie 2013

This weekend our family checked a fall must off the list with a visit to the pumpkin patch. 
We saw how tall, this fall.
 which is quite something if you compare it to this 
We saw how strong....
but mainly just how handsome.
 He fed the animals with a smile on his face.  Saying "here ya go"
 and would walk away saying "thank you, Henny".  
 He giggled and ran through the field of little orange pumpkins that all seemed to be just his size. 
 His favorite activity was definitely tossing them.  We may have a future Punkin Chunkin contest winner here my friends. 
 We got to ride on a little train around the patch, which I'm pretty sure he thought was Thomas the Tank Engine. 
 It was a perfect way to spend the day enjoying my family in one of the best times of the year. 

If you want to have some real fun comparing our trip from this year to last you can check it out here. It amazes me to see how much he has grown and become a little person in a year.

Monnogrammed Pumpkin Planter

 A few years ago I had seen the bright idea of using pumpkins as planters for fall flowers.  I quickly grabbed three pumpkins, hollowed them out and placed mums inside.  They looked great for about 4 days and then the pumpkins began filling up with water, and rotting because I had never created drain holes.  So I grabbed three more pumpkins, created drain holes and repotted.  However they began rotting again quite quickly.  Just like a carved pumpkin their lives were short lived.  So I abandoned the idea until now. 
 Using a fake carving pumpkin I made a cute little spot to sit my mums for the fall season. 

Then grab your resident cutie pie and use this nice little spot for an impromptu photoshoot. 
"Heavy!"  he said
Happy Pumpkin Planting!
