I have to admit that places like pumpkin patches sometimes give me a bit of anxiety. I really dislike places crawling with people all there to consume. I was determined to find a small farm pumpkin patch. Well, that is exactly what I found. This pumpkin patch was only about 25 minutes away and there were hardly any people there. In fact, until the very end, we were the only ones there. It was a dream.
There is something about the country that calls to me and really I think it calls to all of us in my little family. I mean, we already have chickens, right? What is a move to the country. Ha! I feel like I am a little bit city and a little bit country! Anyway, after playing at the farm, feeding horses, and picking pumpkins, we were all relaxed and happy. We had a lovely time and came home with some beautiful pumpkins.

The kids are pumped about Halloween being just around the corner, however Cooper keeps calling it Christmas even though he clearly knows it's Halloween! We have some crafts in mind but we started with Halloween Lanterns and they were super easy and fun. Here is How we did it...
Get some glass jars out of your recycling stash. We have a bunch. I always save them because I can always find use for them.
Shred tissue paper. Whatever colors you wish, we were going for mummies and pumpkins so we went with orange and white.
