Looking back......pumpkins

I have to go back and post about the days leading up to Halloween because
 I didn't get to write about it, and it's my favorite time of the year!
A week before Halloween Mr. Nielson and I took the Little Nies 
to a local grocery store where some of the most perfectly shaped pumpkins live!
At the beginning of the October Jane and I drove past this little pumpkin 
(grocery) patch and I spotted the most perfect pumpkin.
He was round, large and a beautiful vibrant orange.
We drove past him several times before I decided to
hide him in the very back of the patch. I was hoping he'd be there when we came
back later with the rest of the family.  Sadly, when we came back, he was gone. 
(Someone really lucked out!!)
Don't worry, I found an almost equally adorable one! 
The Little Nies loved searching for their perfect shaped and sized pumpkin.  
The color needed to be just right and for Jane, 
it was all about finding the perfect stem.
The next day the girls and I glued and sewed and prepared their costumes 
for the big Halloween day and I only burned my already burned 
fingers 20,000 times on the glue gun.

But it was so worth it.
