Rainy days and Mondays..

well, we folks on the East Coast definitely didn't see this coming!  I mean, in the county I live in, it runs far west so on one side, we've got the hurricane rains and then to the west, some snow?? so far, we've just had about 12 hours of rain and its a bit chilly but I am so glad that we got the pumpkin patch outta the way before the storm came! I had procrastinated till the end....

We decided to try a new place this year and we went to Spring Meadow Farm in Upperco...and I hate to say it, but the pictures make it look better than it was...it was cheesy and definitely not worth the admission price!  I have a thing about picking my own pumpkins from out in the field and the website made it look like that was an option but it wasn't..at least if you want me to pick one from your store area, have a HUGE selection!  Not to mention their corn maze looked like shit. And their kiddie ride thingees smelled funny & stinky and are probably the reason why Thing 2 is sick today...call me picky...From now on, it's either Sharp's at Waterford or either Homestead Gardens....

SO anyway, we spent the day together and as long as Thing 2 was happy.....

We decided to go to our local farmer's market to buy our pumpkins:




and the boy still picked a small pumpkin!  
and we carved (the kids and I -Thing 3 doesn't do that kind of stuff)





the boy went traditional but the girl just HAD to be different and didn't want to use a template-she wanted to freestyle her own sugar skull- you see what happened!  I had to then "fix it" with toothpicks!  Mommy was the smart one and used a template from ZombiePumkins...Team IronMan in da house!!!


and here you go...
