Pumpkins for our little Punkin!!

We had a wonderfully busy weekend. Saturday we prepped and prepared for our "pumpkin party" that we were having on Sunday. We cleaned the house: dusted, vacuumed, carpet cleaned, mowed the lawn, and got the remainder of our Halloween decorations up.

I attempted a couple chalkboard designs from Pinterest. (Love my chalkboard pantry doors!!) 

Then on Sunday we did some final preps and I made soup for our dinner. Ellie had a wonderful long nap and then we met up with some family at the pumpkin patch to pick out pumpkins.  After we purchased our pumpkins we all headed back to our house for carving and dinner. 

The Menu: pumpkin soup, green salad with rotisserie chicken, sourdough bread, and lots of little nibbles. We also had pumpkin crunch cake for dessert. Yum!!

Picture overload begins

Have you gone or are you going to the pumpkin farm this year? What Halloween traditions do you and your family have? What Fall/Thanksgiving traditions do you have?



  1. I love the sweet Ellie's First pumpkin patch pictures! We go this sunday. You all Definitely raised the bar on pumpkin carving!

  2. Oh my goodness! Your little girl is the absolute cutest ever! Love the pictures with her and the pumpkins. We're doing a giveaway right now for the new book Fairy Birds and she would totally love it once she got older! You'll have to check it out :)
