PUMPKIN LOVE

Not too long ago, Jessica did a post about how she measures her family by a family picture each year. I have to admit, we do not do a family picture each year. We get one (and official one) about every OTHER year. However, I do take formal pix of my kids each year. I don't want to miss those milestones. I tend to measure our family by our Pumpkin patch pix. I know we will go every year because it is one of my favorite activities and although I was bemoaning the lack of fall-ness around here, I have to admit, it was a PICTURE PERFECT day... not to mention a fabulous 82 degrees. Ahhhhhhhh, fall.

We visited Schnepf farms which is not too far from here. It is an all-inclusive ticket for the day, meaning that as long as you don't want to eat, all of the activities are there for the taking for no additional charge. Now, don't get me wrong. Admission is not CHEAP, but, for as much as you can do in the day, it is worth it. Luckily the crowd wasn't too big and we were able to enjoy all of the rides, the petting zoo and a few fall treats.
I have no idea why I didn't put Wade in this picture!

I was ACTUALLY dumb enough to get on one of these with my pregnant belly and Wade on my lap. Sometimes I lack better judgement.

This has to be one of my all time favorite pix of Abby. Her true personality is shining forth.


What is better than cousins sharing a little Italian ice?

I HAD to put both of these for 2001 because you know, she was my first baby at the pumpkin patch, and these pictures make me LAUGH!

Those are so cute! I love fall photos like that. The pumpkin patch makes me feel are warm and cozy and like everything is right in the world.

Please don't feel bad about the tooth fairy thing!!! Look how cute you are with your pumpkin patch pictues! I usually just pick up the cheapest ones I can get at Walmart. The kids ask when we're getting pumpkins and I tell them "As soon as Walmart drops the price to $3 we're there!" Also, we haven't had a family picture since my 6 year old was about 4 months old. :) Feel better now ;) I guess we all have our strengths and weaknesses, if you can call writing tooth fairy letters a strengh (he he).

PS I just talked to Cheryln tonight and she is happy to know that you're the right Lindsey. I think she'll be stopping by your blog soon.

I just want you to be the first to know that Denae brought me some tortillas last night. Thanks for the offer. I plan on doing a post all about it.

Sorry I always forget. Best is last.

Those pictures are AWESOME! I love that you do pumking patch pictures every year, the Christmas thing is so over done! I so wanted to see a picture of you driving one of those things with Wade on your prego belly.

Fun to see your family through the years. Cute baby in 2001. How did you stop yourself from kissing and pinching those cheeks constantly?

Funny, I have yearly pictures from the pumpkin patch too. It is the perfect picture place. That October light is great.
