This week, Justin and I decided to go buy pumpkins ~ This was a first for me!! We will be carving them this weekend, so that we can put them on display outside the house, just in time for Halloween. This is all very exciting for me! Even just a trip to go pick pumpkins was exhilarating ~ I have never experienced these fall festivities.
We drove to a site nearby to choose the pumpkins we want to carve.
I kept trying to take the round cute ones, but Justin explained that they needed to have a good area for the “face” we would later carve. So I let him pick for me, because between taking pictures and wandering around, we might have ended up staying there for an hour!
That’s my pumpkin!
There was a large selection of sizes to choose from. Look how cute these little ones are!
I liked all the little Harvest and Halloween signs!

hehe… Trick or Treat, Smell my Feet!
Baby Pumpkins ~ I had to get one!
I will paint on the smaller one, and we will all carve the bigger ones together.
Look out for pictures of the carving later this week.
We have also been invited the a “Pizza and Pumpkin Carving Party” on Friday evening, with our friends from Pre-Marital Class. That will be lots of fun, and I will be sure to take some pictures!
