Pumpkin Picking...

Last Friday Joy and I went to the Pumpkin Patch while waiting to go visit Daddy during his office Halloween party. We had a good time, I was impressed with her reaction to walking on hay and seeing ALL those big orange balls! The pics show the story!


I just let her out of the stroller (in the background) and put her down to see what she would do...She wasn't sure what to do with the Pumpkins at first...

So She decided to walk around them...

I kept pointing out different things I was trying to get her to notice the pallet of gourds behind her, but she was more interested in the giant pumpkins (and the other kids running around)

I think her eyes stayed this big most of the time, she was amazed with the pumpkins!

She was showing me the little pumpkins in front of her...

So I gave her one, she wasn't sure what exactly to do with it,

So she dropped it only to pick it up again, and again, and again...

I put this one down for her to inspect, we got it for Daddy.

I could not resist trying the little photo opportunity they had, I was impressed she wasn't screaming or trying to get down,

Until after the first picture!

Oh and she never got back in the stroller it got commandeered by the pumpkins!
So that was all the Friday before Halloween. I think we will go back to this Pumpkin Patch again next year, but maybe a little earlier in the season as the Pumpkins had been picked through allot! (I had gone on Wednesday with my preschool class and between then and Friday they were down quite a bit!)

Halloween was last night and we again put on our Minnie Mouse dress, and occassionally I could get the ears on (sorry no ears in the Pumpkin Patch too much to do by myself!). Joy "Trick or Treated" at 3 houses, our neighbors, and 2 Grandmotherly (about my Mom's age) ladies across the street. I knew they would love her so we went to see each of them. She wasn't sure what to think, but Rob and I are enjoying the little candy that got us :) I will try and get the pictures up soon.

Rob was also a great Halloween participant this year, he did a Matrix theme with 2 other guys from work. He even won the office decorating contest with his Matrix walls! He then brought those walls home and decorated the entryway for our trick or treaters! He was Neo and a couple kids even recognized him! Pictures to follow later this week...

Other news....
I am working at our church's Parent's Day Out/Preschool/Kindergarten I started out 3 days a week full days 9-2 as one of the 4's teachers. Then many things happened and now I am working 5 days 9-12 as a 4's teacher and the Kindergarten teacher. This is good and bad. I enjoy the consistency this gives me and Joy, and technically it's the same hours, and we get to see Rob everyday for lunch. The bad is it is 5 days, and this is only week 2 of the new schedule, but it's making for long weeks. I also don't have much planning time at the school so it is causing me to do some work at home, which I don't want to do. I will say my allergies/sinuses have been INSANE these 2 weeks so that could be part of the issue and being new to the positions also creates more work, but only time will tell. So that's all my news.
