We like Halloween around here. Jason gets into it early, watching scary old movies from the end of September through Halloween. We've had Patrick's Halloween costume for several weeks now (black Spiderman) and are contemplating possibilities for Melkamu (please vote in your comments about which one he should be): a pumpkin, Elmo, or a train conductor. I just like the time of year, with all the wonderful smells and possibilities for baking. It makes me want to bake things with lots of cinnamon and nutmeg in them. I wish I were a better baker, but I still like to try and have fun.
Today we went to the pumpkin patch. We love the pumpkin patch we've found. They have a huge selection of pumpkins, a bunny petting zoo, moon bounces, pony rides, and other fun things. We look forward to going every year.
Melkamu wanted one also!
Jason tried to talk me into this 30 pound pumpkin. I didn't go for it.
Melkamu had fun riding in the wheelbarrow with the pumpkins.
Patrick liked the display of fall decorations!
Time to pet some bunnies!
And jump in the moon bounce!
Despite proof otherwise based on our photos, I am actually part of our family. Since we never have pictures of all 4 of us together, we have a fabulously talented photographer taking family pictures of us tomorrow! I am so excited!
