Pumpkin Patch and Halloween

A few weeks ago we headed to a local pumpkin patch with our sisters and the Piper family. We went to a new place this year which was fun to try out! It was free to get in (awesome!) and the pumpkins were actually priced nicely. Lily even picked out her very own little pumpkin! It had rained the morning of, but by the time we got there it was ok weather-with no rain! Love this picture of me and my sweet girl!Lily climbing on top of a giant hay stack!I know it doesn't look like it in this picture, but AJ and Lily were way up there! She was afraid to even go up there and started crying after I took this! Oh well! Again, too afraid to do this by herself!And my sister's turn!Playing in a pit of corn kernelsLily was too afraid to go down this slide-but in her defense it was dark! AJ is trying to coax her down...
So instead of coming down by herself she comes with Tucker-and with a big smile!Next she comes down with her auntie Leandra-and Leandra's face looks more scared than Lily's!And I LOVE this picture too! Lily holding hands with her daddy and my sister's fiance' (got engaged last week!!!) Kevin.

The 3 kiddos-too difficult to get them all looking at one time!

Me and my sister Probably our last family picture before this baby comes!!
Here's my fairy princess on Halloween! Trying to get a shot of her wings on her back-but you can't really see it. Love her!

First we went to our church's Harvest Party and Lily got to play some games and have a snack! This is Lily's sweet friend Cami-and she's wearing the costume Lily wore last year! Crazy to think Lily was that small!

Lily "fishing" for some goodies

Next getting her face painted-I was surprised at how still she sat!

All done! Hard to tell because of the view, but it was a pretty flower.

Having a snackAnd with her bff Zoe!

I'm glad we participated in Halloween this year because I considered not doing it since I'm a giant, pregnant woman! But it was fun having Lily dress up and to see how excited she was when she got 1 piece of candy! I will say that we won't allow her to eat candy past 5pm from now on because this girl didn't fall asleep until 11pm that night!! Unbelievable! We still had fun though! And next year we'll have another little one to dress up-how fun!!

What GREAT fall pics! Looks like Oct went fast for you! :) And I agree the sugar that the kids ate kept them up WAY too long too! YIKES!

very cute pictures! I'm pretty sure you went to the same farm that Avery's class went to for kindergarten (of course I went, too). It was pretty cute! I really liked the hay maze where I could actually see the kids running through it. The barn slides and stuff were super cute, too! Glad you guys had a good times - never stop making those family memories together!

I love all of your cute pictures. I love Jameson's room too. That is a darling name and your nursery theme is so cute too. I am looking forward to baby pictures. Good luck with everything!
