Hey little pumpkins!

Hooray for fall!  I love the seasons here in Kentucky and the beautiful trees and cooler weather.  Hopefully that will get here soon, but until it does, at least I can enjoy the fall decorations inside my house.  I've only put up a few so far, but I thought I would share my favorite, because it just makes me happy every time I look at it.

When Maren was a baby, we found a pumpkin costume at the Gap Outlet for $5.  Since then, each of our children has worn it their first Halloween.  Last year, my mother-in-law gave me a little sign that says "welcome to our patch" and I thought "Hey!  We do have a little pumpkin patch!"  So I put the pictures of the kiddos in frames and put them on top of my tv.  I love it.  They just make me smile.

Now, I'm not suggesting that you put your 8 year old in a pumpkin costume and take a picture for a fall decoration (although that would be rather funny).  I just thought I'd share.  

(Here's Nathan in the pumpkin costume.  Will be framed soon.)


  1. I love this! What a great patch of punkins you have!

  2. What a great idea! How adorable these babies are -- I still display photos of my (now grown) kids in their various halloween costumes during this time of year with my other decorations :)
