Pumpkin Patch Galore

Our first trip to the pumpkin patch provided us with many a photo. Be prepared for high doses of pumpkin and child oriented adorability.

This year was a good year for pumpkins. The heat allowed for the growing of monster, child-proof beasts. We tested their durability by placing our girls on top of them. Sure enough, their structural integrity was high enough to support the weight of 30 lbs girls. Well done, science.

But the growing of huge pumpkins didn't deter our agricultural sector from producing the time- honored mini pumpkins. The girls were entranced by the many vats full of these little guys.

They were only $0.25 each! I almost felt bad buying them. So cheap - how do they make a profit? Certainly not off of overseas manufacturing in China (so I know my former foreign exchange students aren't being exploited). I can't understand it. It must be a Halloween miracle.

I admit it. We staged this last one. We wanted a photo of all three girls running towards the camera, so we had to give Julia a head start. It turned out pretty cute, so I don't mind the pretense.

My nieces are so cute!!!!!!

Cutest ever? By the way, how much does it cost to send someone on a mission? And how come everytime I want to post something I have to do that stupid security check? I don't like copying letters.

We pinned the ribbon on her that same night.

Kelly - wow what a disparate set of questions!

How much to go on a mission? I think Annie paid roughly $400 a month.

Why the security check? Because I was getting spammed with comments many times a day. It is for my sanity.
