On Saturday, K and I went on our annual trip to the pumpkin patch and corn maze. Of all the places we have gotten pumpkins so far, Whitcomb's definitely wins for fun factor, although we did sort of give up on the corn maze this year (with ONE checkpoint left to find!). Before heading over there, we had a leisurely birthday brunch with my family at Leunig's (and lots of mimosas).
We picked up two pumpkins: a "dumb" pumpkin and his "smart" companion, which we will be carving tonight. Time got away from us yesterday, what with laundry and paper-writing and all that jazz, so the kids might not get to see our jack-o-lanterns, but there is something festive about carving on Halloween. We will also be watching scary movies and eating lots of candy! Happy All Hallows Eve, everyone! :)
Pumpkins carved, candy eaten. Success :)
