Ah... October ...
We woke up with no plans on Saturday! So we donned our best pumpkin-picking duds (which, to my older girls means a splash of orange to go along with their usual princess/clown mash-up) , loaded up the family roadster and headed out to that Great Pumpkin Patch, that Mecca for all serious pumpkin pickers ....
the Wal-mart on Highland.
Seriously, dudes, the pumpkins elsewhere were expensive this year.
Anyhoo, we brought them back and then used them as leverage to get the girls to take a nap.
After this, we painted. Guess what colors they chose? Sparkly pink (obvs.), turquoise, purple, and ... orange. Great choices, really. Only, uh, they turned out looking a little ... what's the word ... .........
At least Sophie's was in a moldy "pattern" this year. It was a moldy rainbow. We are very, very, very into rainbows.
Maddie's was moldy blobs. I think she might be into blobs.
Eliza preferred painting with a popsicle stick. And she ate some.
It was non-toxic. This is not a scary story.
