The Pumpkin Patch

Our Pumpkin 

Just exactly what is it about Fall that gets me so excited?  I love everything about it.  Fall seems to intoxicate all my senses: the feelings, the sights, the smells of the season.  It all seeps into my pores and I just can't get enough.  I love how the air feels crisp and cool.  I love how the trees morph into brilliant shades of orange, yellow, and red and set the hillsides on fire.  I love wearing jeans and long-sleeved shirts and cuddling under a blanket with my sweetheart.  And I love that urge to bake something sweet and the aroma it leaves in the kitchen.  But most of all, I love knowing that my favorite holidays are just around the corner!  I think this time of year is about home and family and everything warm and good.  It's about traditions and creating memories that will last.  Yeah, I think that sums it up.   

This weekend we took Jed to the pumpkin patch.  I couldn't wait to see Jed's reaction!  (I also wanted those classy pictures of Jed next to some colorful orange pumpkins since he is so close to turning a year and a half. Unfortunately, I didn't get those incredible pictures; Jed does not care to have his picture taken.  But we did have a great time!)  Jed walked through the mini straw maze that was set up with a curious grin.  He crawled over big pumpkins and tried to claim some small ones for himself.  Then Jed went nuts when he saw the tractor!  He practically begged for a ride!  He pointed and squealed and stared open-mouthed.  It was so cute!  We went for a ride.  I love how the little things make Jed's entire body light up!  It makes me feel awesome as his mother.

Happy Fall!
