Pumpkin related festivities!

It was bound to happen at some point, right? The inevitable 'I'm a blogger, with a toddler, who's pretty basic' pumpkin post! Not sorry ;)
 
We made our way out to Santa's Christmas Tree Farm (which is a Pumpkin Patch in October, in case you're confused) on Sunday for a couple hours of Fall fun!
The farm offers so many fun things for the kids to do including hay rides, a huge bounce pillow, a zip line and pony rides.  We arrived right when they opened at 10am, which worked out perfect because by the time we were leaving around noon, it was absolutely packed!
 
I love this picture so much! It was right before we left, right in the middle of what was supposed to be nap time, post popsicle, mid hayride and little miss was having the time of her life. I love creating these memories with her :)
 
Monday, after school we promised Abigail a pumpkin carving/painting party with a special Halloween treat and we did just that!
We set up a bunch of paint pots on the patio and let Abigail go to town on her mini pumpkin while Billy & I prepped the large pumpkin to carve. It ended up working well because Abigail was distracted while we did the gutting and carving ;)
 
Because all other candy corn is just gross.
 
Olaf has seen better days and he's missing his eyes, but Abigail loves him.
That's what counts, right?!
 
Mid painting, Abigail looked up at me and said 'mama, I'm having so much fun! I'm so happy!' and then I cried into a target bag of pumpkin guts.
Happy Tuesday, friends!
XO!
