Pumpkin Patch

I LOVE fall, truly...so many beautiful smells and colors. The wonders of bringing out the hot cocoa for the first time, the smell of fires outside, the crunch of the leaves, the brisk chill of the wind, but saved by the warmth of cuddle duds (YES I wear them, my blood runs ice cold, they are part of my skin in the fall and winter!), and warmth of heavy sweaters and sweatshirts. I LOVE it. And this is amazing, because I know it means winter is coming...and as much as a love autumn, I HATE winter. Also strange because I LOVE Christmas! It is as if God gives me the gift of autumn and Christmas to get me through the bitterness I feel for winter and seasonal depression that envelopes us. Yuck...

But autumn ;) I smile thinking about it! And one of the beauties to be embraced is the sight of your babes amongst leaves and pumpkins! Gorgeous.

My wonderful sister wanted to take Gianna for a day out (a necessity for a mother's sanity at times), and the pumpkin patch was on the list. It was only allowed if I was able to accompany them for this part of the adventure. And it was glorious...

Sorry, I first have to brag about how cute my babes are...we'll start with this GORgeous SIX MONTH OLD! I just can't believe she's that big...but I digress...
 


She was a little nervous about this, but turned out so precious...
 

 

 

 

 


She was in love with the little ones...just like her ;)
 

 

 

 

 


And as we left the animals, well, she had to say "goodbye little lambs!" because she was well familiar with these guys through the nursery rhyme...I wasn't about to tell her any different!


 

 

 

 

 


My babies...
