Pumpkin patching

Way back in mid-September, we went to the pumpkin patch with some friends. They didn’t have pumpkins for sale yet, but I figured there was plenty of time for that. Plus we didn’t want them to rot too early, right?

9 - September

Well, we never made it back, so tonight I told the kids we were getting pumpkins and…went to the nearest grocery store.


Say “Festive Holiday Fun!”

But! This is the grocery store that gives kids a free cookie and there’s a Starbucks. For $11.50 we got two big pumpkins, two little pumpkins, two cookies, and a latte. All with no crowds. I was actually feeling pretty festive.

Add in some stickers from the dollar store:

10 - October

…and we may have to make this an annual thing. New tradition!


  1. …and add in some ADORABLE children! My goodness!

  2. Sounds great to me.

  3. Stickers! Brilliant!

  4. I love the stickers! My husband and the kids carved our pumpkins last weekend, and 3 days later they were filled with mold. Ewww.
