Hello Friend {and the pumpkin patch}

We hit the pumpkin patch this weekend. It was a beautiful fall day...and so it was absolutely packed with people!  Collin was intent on getting the perfect pumpkin...and he loved climbing through all the pumpkins.  In the end he picked on the edge of a completely different pile but it was fun to climb and get really dirty.


Marcel on the other hand was intent on getting his face painted.  (Don't you love Collin's concentration in the background?) He wanted one big spider across his face but in the end compromised with one on each cheek. 
And unlike Collin, was happy to have his picture taken in front of the growth chart!  I need to dig up the pictures from when we first took Ryan to this pumpkin patch 15 years ago...I think the same growth chart existed then!

And for my card...a very simple card using MME goodies and PaperSmooches stamps!
And ...a final reminder to stop by CAS-ual Fridays at midnight EST! There is a very EXCITING announcement!  Happy Friday eve to you!

That is one big pile of pumpkins!! Oh my! We have to go wadding out into the field and it can be rather muddy sometimes LOL! How fun to have pictures by the growth chart - we mini-golf at the same place most summers and I have pics of my kids by a big fish most of the summers. Need to pull them all out and look at them as well. They grow up waaaay too fast!

Love the card! Lovely papers adn the button is the perfect touch.

Those buttons were part of the Artful Delight kit this past month and I couldn't figure out how to use them. This is a wonderful application, and your card is so amazing. Super sweet photos of the boys, the pumpkins make for a great background.

We went to the pumpkin patch this week, too! It's always so fun, I love doing that :) Oh yes, the climbing and getting dirty are the best! My boys were intent on breaking any off the vines that weren't already detached! Ha! Awesome photos, and I LOVE this adorable card, Lynn. :) Hope you are having a great weekend! *hugs*
