This photo was not staged. This evening we played in Violet's room before bath time. We rarely play in her room because it's upstairs and most of her toys are downstairs. But she found her play hats we bought last fall. We haven't played with them at all this summer. She was very excited and kept saying 'hat'. She had a bit of a fit when I told her we can't wear it in the bath tub. Though that would have made for a great pic.

I made a costume for Violet to wear to daycare. The kids all dress up and have a parade. No way is she taking her Queen of Hearts costume so I made this cave girl dress. She'll wear a white tshirt and black leggings under it. I'll put her hair in a pony tail(Pebbles Flinstone-ish)on top of her head and tie a bone(made from sculpy) into it.

I thought I'd get a pic of Violet sitting with the pumpkins like we did a year ago. Look how different she looks. Same cheeks! Her legs looks really skinny I swear her legs aren't this skinny. It must be the camera angle and the fact she's wearing black.

Yesterday I decided to dress Violet in her new plaid halloween dress. Thought it would be festive for pumpkin picking. Of course when we got up yesterday morning it was 45. So a coat and hat were needed. But I got this shot yesterday afternoon after her nap. All smiley and cute!


Spent the morning yesterday picking pumpkins. We finally found the best pumpkin patch and it's really close. It's called Johnson Farms. You get to go out to the pumpkin field and pick your pumpkin. Many are still on vines and you have to cut them.
It was very chilly. Had to pull out the heavy jackets. We were the first ones there for about half an hour. It was great! We had the whole field and hay wagon to our selves.
Which one do I want.
The best pic of the day. Think I'm going to have to frame this one. This is the pumpkin Violet got to take home.
Helping Dada push the wheel barrel.
This pic doesn't even really show you how big the field is. Pretty cool looking still.
We then went to see all the farm animals. Violet got to walk among the young chicks. She was very excited. Poor chickens kept running every time she'd get near.
Goat licked Violet's finger. And as quickly as that happened Violet's finger went into her mouth. Ugh.

Had fun wandering the hay maze. She did surprisingly well in there.
We stayed for about 2hrs. We had to get going so we could get some lunch and take a nap. But we could have stayed for the pig races and the giant canon that shoots pumpkins. Could have also tried the pumpkin donuts and cider but thought it might ruin lunch. Maybe next year. I think this will become a new tradition for us every year. Big fun!!
