Fall...

I fell in love the newest sketch from SketchyThursdays.... I loved the inspirational layouts from the DT. I was so happy this last weekend wasn't as hectic as last couple have been, so I was able to get the layout done earlier than my usual... Wednesday right before the deadline. Some how it just came together... and I love it when that happens and I love how it turned out!!!

These photos are from last years trip... using these photos is my way of getting ready for our annual visit.... I can't wait... and Rainee... well, you can imagine how delighted she is... it's been non-stop excitement around our house in the anticipation of when we are going to the pumpkin patch.... I love it!!!

This place brings such wonderful memories I think that's why we all love it so much... we have been going the this same pumpkin patch since Rainee was 2 years old... This place is huge... there are acres and acres of pumpkins... and while there we always feed the goats, go on pony rides, tracker rides, the bouncers and get lost in the corn mazes and of course, there is the picking of the perfect pumpkin from a ton of PUMPKINS!!! This a job in itself.... each one of us have our own idea of the "perfect pumpkin"... so we can't leave without several in tow. lol! But since that first time... it's become our autumn season tradition... and each year it brings excitement to our home.... from the anticipation of going to the time we bring our pumpkins home... it's our own little fall harvest of happiness.
