Pumpkin Picking 2012

Today we went to the pumpkin patch.  The girls found their pumpkins right away.  As they get older, the hunt is shorter.  However, as they get older they want the bigger wait, that hasn't changed.

It seems like every year we go later in the day to find pumpkins.  Marissa had trouble with the sun in her eyes.  NOTE TO SELF: Go earlier in the day next year.

Gianna's biggest struggle was deciding between the "normal" pumpkins and the "warty" pumpkins.  She wants to carve it so she went with the smooth, normal one.

Another struggle as they get older is tolerating each other long enough for a pic together.  We've been really working on them getting along better.  It's not like I ask them to hold hands or hug all the time!  C'mon, work with me!!

A tradition of ours is measuring the girls. I fear Marissa will outgrow the sign one day.  Hope she slows up soon or she'll be as tall as me!

Gianna is slowly catching up to Marissa.  I tell her to enjoy her age now & not rush things.  She doesn't like being the youngest.

Every chance I get, I try to get a pic with Joe.  Marissa took this (out of many) and after a little cropping I love it. ;)

I love these pumpkins the most.  So pretty.

Gianna was not happy about posing in front of the scarecrow but did it for me. 

Both girls picked out a small white pumpkin to paint.  Love Marissa's smile.

Me and my shadow. 

I'm in denial that it's October.  When I can get away with it, I still wear flip flops.  I don't look forward to the cold, cold days.  It's bad enough how dark it gets early on.  Halloween will be here before we know it!!
