Little Pumpkin at the Pumpkin Patch

I was SO excited to take Bailey to the Asbury pumpkin patch last week (especially in her pumpkin pillowcase dress I made)! She, on the other hand, was not so excited to be there. Turns out- the poor child has an ear infection, so she was very grumpy! But we tried to make the best of it anyway!

B's two favorite things: trying to pick up the pumpkins

and sitting on them!

She also really liked the "black" pumpkins but her mean mommy wouldn't let her bring this one home.

When we got home, she was ready to carve the pumpkins. I knew they wouldn't last until Halloween, but we had a few fun nights lighting them. I didn't really remember how difficult carving a pumpkin was. I totally admire those people who do portraits and really fancy stuff in pumpkins. I had a hard time with just the basics. And Bailey was no help either- once she realized how yucky the insides were, she abandoned the pumpkin carving for more exciting things! Alas, here are our 2 pumpkins- all aglow!
