I really don't like this whole growing older deal. My baby is supposed to stay a baby forever! He's growing up too fast and before I know it, he'll be a 1st grader and then it's all a whirlwind after that. I better make sure I kiss and hug on him a little more and hold him as much as I can. Here he is with his "Excavator Cake" that I found on Family Fun.

For Family Home Evening we went to Purdum's Pumpkin Patch and farm stand in New Plymouth, Idaho. It was such a fun activity! They had an area set up with straw bales, an old truck and pumpkins everywhere for picture taking. Then we rode on a trailer pulled by a really old tractor to the pumpkin patch.
It was full of pumpkins of every color, size and shape you could imagine. The kids were in heaven. I told them they could choose any pumpkin as long as they could carry it. Mia broke the rule and had a nice gentleman help her, but her HUGE pumpkin was atleast 100 lbs. and I wouldn't let her get it. She found another nice sized one and was just as happy. Van went right to the white pumpkins and found a great one and didn't let go.
Along with pumpkins we also got some amazing veggies. The peppers were almost as big as Van's head! We had such a great time that I think we'll have to make this a tradition. I love traditions! And Fall!

I love Halloween! I love the pumpkins, ghosts, costumes, black cats, candy, tricks, treats, smells, and everything fun about it. It takes you back to your childhood like no other holiday. Most people remember every costume they ever wore and all the adventures of trick-or-treating. I love taking my kids out now and seeing the excitement in their faces when they realize that all they have to do is knock on a door and people give out CANDY!!!
Here are some of the fun things I have found to try and make. Hope you can do some too!
