Pumpkins for Family Night




We have a great pumpkin patch by our house and it made the perfect family night activity. Apparently everyone had the same idea. It was fun but dang cold. Please go away! I hate the coldness. But then we came home to warm oatmeal pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. We also had a little lesson on the being happy while we are helping - a much need lesson around here. You would think I torture my children with endless chores and that they never, ever, ever get to play with friends. Yep. I just sit on the couch and watch them slave the day away. It's great.

Yep - I think we went to the same patch last night (a little later when it was just getting dark.) Most of the nice big round ones were all gone by then (looks like you got em!) I couldn't find everyone's winter clothes - it was so cold!
Adorable family pics!
