Pumpkin Patch!

Last week I worked on a lot of sewing projects that have been on my list for a while. I had bought a few shirts to applique on in the summer and just hadn't gotten to the last one, yet.

I decided to make it a fall outfit so I printed off a pumpkin picture, traced it onto orange check gingham fabric and made a pumpkin applique out of it. I also had bought two pairs of jeans that were on clearance for $3.00 each. I decided to add a ruffle out of the same material the pumpkin was made out of. I am pretty happy with the outfit. I do need to work on my ruffle skills, though!

On Wednesday Russ and I took Chloe Jo to the pumpkin patch! We met Aunt Chelle and cousins Brianna and Brenson there. We sure had a lot of fun!

The girls loved this spider tunnel!

There were a lot of different activities for the children. Brianna loved the petting zoo. Chloe Jo...eh, not so much.

This is a hay bale maze. We tried to get the girls to hold hands and smile for the camera at the exit. This is the best we could do.

Chloe Jo enjoyed the obstacle course. Erm, let me rephrase. Chloe Jo skipped everything else and just played on the hay bale part of the obstacle course.

My sweet girl!

I think the best part (if you ask Chloe Jo) was the train. Our group was the only one there at the time so everyone, adults included, rode the train.

I'm kind of surprised we all were able to get out. You can just see the top of Miss Stinker's head in the red car.

And, of course, what is a day at the pumpkin patch without a family picture. This one turned out pretty good!

I am so loving this time of year!

P.S. This is my 1000th post!!!
