picTORIal: More Pumpkins…

Ok, so we are pumpkin obsessed in The McDermott household. We hit another pumpkin patch the other night… Here are some super cute shots!



How big are Hattie and Daddy? SOOO big!

Hattie hams it up with the pumpkins!

Big Bro and Baby Sis!

Which one should I choose??

FYI… Stella was way too into the inflatable pumpkin slide to pose with pumpkins…

    I had to laugh at this because my daughter is going to her 3rd pumpkin patch today with my 3 yr old grandson London LOL! I am disabled but I love seeing the photos she takes and the laughter on his face going to these places.

    Love all your photos.. I have two teenage sons 18 &, we don’t decorate like we did when they were little.

    We made a lot of crafts at home..that and I was still teaching preschool then..anything, you could make with everyday things you have around the home..paper plates, paint, rocks, fabric, coloring /dying pasta, coloring, tissue paper, name it we made it. Missing when they were little like yours ..enjoy, every second time passes so quickly…

    I have a high school graduate who hasn’t started college yet..and a sophomore!

    You have a beautiful happy that you are Kay. I know you are appreciating every second you have with all your babies. Love your show, books, sites.. God Bless you! Remember to rest Momma! :) <3

    We love Halloween and visit the pumpkin patch every year. This year we had a Cinderella Pumpkin Patch Birthday party for my 4 year old. My hubbyalso created a very funny mooning pumpkin man and put it out by the road for everyone to have a laugh:)

  • Tasha Gaddy

    We don’t have real pumpkin patches where we live. . .so we got together with some friends and made our own little pumpkin patch :)

    From now until the end of January is the best time of year IMO. I wish Autumn lasted much longer. I love to paint faces on pumpkins in place of carving. THey tend to last longer too!

  • Jeanne Tutt

    Oh my gosh your kids are so adorable! You have such a cute family! We started our family this year and had the Joy of Bringing my son to the pumpkin patch for the first time this year! He LOVED IT! He loved all of the animals he could see there and loved to play with the hay! He also picked out a pumpkin and we cant wait to carve it on the 30th(family tradition we are passing on to our little man!) Thanks for sharing your adventure!!

    Loved both of the Pumpkin Patch PicTORIals (speaking of alliterations). At first I felt no need to comment, because we don’t ‘do’ Halloween in this country. We celebrate St. Martin though in this part of the country which does involve trick or treating but without the fancy dress part: children go from door to door with illuminated paper lampions (mostly crafted at school), sing a St. Martin song and they get sweets, cookies or tangerines in return. So in the end, after reading your blog and finding some inspiring pins I created my own St. Martin meets Halloween Jack O’Tangerines:

    And guess what? This weekend my lovely mother in law (and partner in vintiquing-crime) told me about a local pumpkinpatch! So we immediatley packed the family in the car and drove the ten minutes to the farm. And in a blistering 41 degrees wind accompanied by a watery sunshine we found our pile of pumkins, here’s the proof: It turned out to be a lovely outing, they had different pumpkin involved games for the kids and a carve your own lantern workshop. So now we have another family memory to add to the 2012 Memory Box, thank you for letting us enjoy yours!

    Call me crazy, but it surely seems like Hattie is a real “Daddy’s Girl.” I absolutely love it!

    Every year, my mom gets crafty with the pumpkins in our yard. She stacks three pumpkins, stakes them together, and paints them as people/characters. She started off with three little pumpkins,making them into football players for my cousins. Since then she’s moved to bigger pumpkins, and has made a football player for our local high school, a volleyball player for my sister, a Santa, Charlie Brown, a pumpkin snowman, a scarecrow. She even was asked to make a bride and groom pumpkin for a wedding!

    This year was the best yet though. She made the M&M characters, all five Wizard of Oz characters, and little NBA & NFL players (my sister’s favorite ones). The M&Ms have been the biggest hit so far. Everyone seems to LOVE them! A little girl who came trick-or-treating tonight said, “Your mom is so crafty.” It was sooo cute! :)

    Here’s the pictures of this years…
