Since the first Pumpkin Patch "field trip" didn't prove to be the most authentic we took Jett & Delilah to another one at a nearby church. I think it's fair to say they had a great time.
Since the kiddos are still a little too young to "carve" their own pumpkin we thought it might be fun for them to decorate a "pankan" with a bunch of stickers.
Despite a couple of melt downs at the onset, we ALL had a wonderful time. We had a bunch of friends, family & neighbors come over to join in the fun: Grandy, Clarence & Milagros, The Clarks & the Strottners. And, I think this is where I will mention that one adult, in particular, seemed to enjoy the candy escapades the most - Clarence!!! His eyes lit up every time we approached a house that had chosen to set their bucket of candy out for the "honor system".
Since I know the day is fast approaching when Jett & Delilah will decide for themselves what they want to dress up as for Halloween... I'm taking full advantage of the fact that for now, I get to choose:) So, The Flintstones it was. Jett was Bam Bam, Delilah was Pebbles & Rich & I were Fred & Wilma. Before hitting the streets with our gang we chowed down on some yummy, pumpkin-shaped pizza!

So, here's to the end of another season filled with costumes, pumpkins & lots of candy. We are now ready for falling leaves, sweaters, Thanksgiving & all of the other wonderful things that November brings.
