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 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.
