Pumpkin Patch

For our Halloween decorating this year, we decided to paint pumpkins, rather than carve them. A lot of my siblings do this with their kids and it just seemed like a good idea. I'm not good at carving, and I'm not always good about being patient with my kids and messes. ;) Anyway, there is a local pumpkin patch that's pretty much across from where we live, so we decided to head there. I did take pictures, but lost those.

Lila and Brighton each got to pick a pumpkin of their own. I feel like the choices they made, very much reflect their personalities. Micah got a big one that would count for both him and me.

That night, we painted the pumpkins in our front room, while watching It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. We love that movie... all of those movies really. (Again, lost pics.) It was great to watch the kids be creative, although, a lot of the time their paint just turned brown because they really wanted to mix all of the colors. We finally, convinced Lila to not mix her colors quite so much so that we can see a difference.

Here are the finished pumpkins. Cute, eh?

Lila's has pink, of course, and Brighton's is the one without the stem.

We'll have to do this again next year.
