I love it!
We carve pumpkins every year but for some reason didn't make it this year.

Beautiful pictures!!!! Well, the one with the corn creeped me out a little bit, but that's because corn fields are scary thanks to Children of the Corn and other movies featuring scary corn fields!

We have 5 pumpkins on our porch, one for each of us, only two are carved though.

Happy Halloween!

I have so many pumpkins that I lose count. This year I'm into white ones. Love the pictures. Lots of great memories were made at the patch.

Just one this year!

I felt so bad for Freddy Hill this year. It rained every Saturday! We got there the first weekend but never got back. Sunday's always found us elsewhere. Great pictures!

Thank you! XXOO Lori

Teacher Tom said...

There are 0 pumpkins on our porch this year, although we carved 10 at preschool.

Typically, we have anywhere from 30-50 decorating our lawn, tree branches and porch, but this year my daughter decided she was too old (13) for a Halloween themed birthday party so I skipped the whole thing.

Actually, kind of nice to not be shoulder deep in pulp for a week.

Ms Bibi said...

Thank you for stopping by.

Beautiful pictures. The pumpkin patch seems like fun.

I have 16 pumpkins on my front porch and 5 on my kitchen porch.

Karen Deborah said...

We have three pumpkins. One big one for the family and two little ones -- one for each kiddo.

What a fun time.

I took all of the pumpkins in off of the porch because I didn't want them to get smashed in the street.

Hope you had a fun Halloween.

Laurie said...

LOVE the pitures AND the poem ....

You were kind enough to visit my blog on Saturday (via SITSstas) and I wanted to invite you over once again to read my blog today. I felt a little bad that you read My Mom Suit only because you & I are at such different stages in life and I hoped it wasn't depressing for you! I'm very new to blogging and it so happens that is my my only sad-ish blog. So far!

I can tell you are a wonderful Mom to Kaishon ...his picture at the top of your blog says it all.

Thanks again for your kind comments!

Amy said...

Beautiful photos...beautiful kids...beautiful poem. :)

Liz said...

Great pictures!

Natalie said...

Just on our porch there are six mini pumpkins and many gourds. We also have more pumpkins outside for decoration on the way in the drive and also in front of our bedroom window! We went pumpkin crazy this year!
Looks like you had fun at the patch! Great pictures :)

Kathleen W. said...

DayDreamer said...

Sharon said...

I love that poem. it's wonderful! I'm going to write it out in a card for my hubby and give it to him (i'm sure he won't mind it's November, right?!)

as always, the pictures are divine. sorry for all the drool on your blog!

We've got about 6 or 7 pumpkins on our front porch...not all big ones though, some small, and some teeny tiny. We didn't carve them so they'll be hanging out until the Christmas decor comes out. :) I love the pics of Kaish and his friend at the pumpkin patch!! Fall is such a fun time of year!
