Pumpkin Patch

Although a little past due, the West family fall traditions have officially gotten under way! It just does not quite feel like fall until the cool temps start rolling in, the leaves begin changing their colors and our annual fall traditions begin. First we take our trip to the pumpkin patch, usually picking our a few good pumpkins for decorating and carving. This year we got a variety of different kinds of pumpkins. And, EVERYONE got to pick out a pumpkin for their very own! We also got some really good pictures of the five little pumpkins from our own patch!

(I am so stinkin' lucky that they are ALL MINE, I know!)

Photo bomb!

Eager to let their creative juices flow, they asked to decorate their pumpkins and I could not resist! Protective clothing (or none at all) - CHECK! Out of close proximity to anything valuable - CHECK! Armed with as many paint colors as they could imagine - CHECK! They painted and perfected, each their own pumpkin (with the exception of Shy...I assumed she would ingest most of it, so she sat this year out!) They were so proud of their creations, and rightfully so!

2013 finished products!!!
