The Pumpkin Patch

One of my favorite family traditions is to go to the Pumpkin Patch every year!!! We have so much fun!

Pumpkin Patch1

We asked the girls what they wanted to do first, but there wasn’t much point, they ran straight for the pony rides. This year I decided that we would go earlier in the October. Normally we go the week before Halloween and it’s usually packed, cold and muddy. Last year it rained on us. I was not disappointed in my decision to go at the beginning of the month! The girls ran right up to the pony booth and were able to get right on! In the past we’ve waited through three pony rides before finally getting to get on the ride!

After the ponies they decided they wanted to get their faces painted. Sydney got her usual mask, and this was Audrey’s first year getting a “big girl face painting” (last year she got a stamp) and she chose a rainbow. Zachary got a stamp of a pumpkin on his face for the first time!

Next we launched pumpkins, and because my kids have the best/silliest daddy in the whole world they each got a chance with Jordan to launch their pumpkins. Zachary was super excited!

While we were washing hands after the petting zoo, Audrey ran over to the stand where they sold kettle corn and caramel corn, and swiped a bag. She walked over slowly, grabbed a a bag and RAN away quickly. No one even noticed until we yelled after her. She looked so proud of herself! A few hours later, after we’d gotten our pumpkins and were waiting for Jordan to come back after he loaded them, I bought Audrey a kettle corn. Excited is an understatement.

Luck of the Irish

Holiday #2!St. Patrick’s Day!

I made a cool craft/decoration for it. I’m good a painting blocks a solid color and then gluing scrapbook paper to it :)

I also bought a super cool table cloth, but it ripped, and I was unable to find the motivation to go back to JoAnn’s to replace it. So I’m out $3, and didn’t have a table cloth, boo.

We wore cool shamrock shirts and took lots of pictures to show off our Irish pride. (Jordan didn’t get a Shamrock shirt, he’s not Irish, lol.)

And then we got to see what those pesky Leprechauns did to our house!

March

They built a green castle in Audrey’s crib, took all of Sydney’s socks and dumped them on the floor, they turned the milk green, and the thing that upset Sydney the most; they wrote all over her white board: The Luck of the Irish Strikes Again!

And Audrey’s shirt? I made it! That’s my February Sewing Project :)
