A visit to the Pumpkin Patch

It's pretty amazing to see the change in dynamic when a child is in the picture.  Our world seems to center around little sister, Holly.  She is such a smart and amazing girl.  She brings light to our lives and so much laughter ensues her hilarious attempts to be funny and clever.  I can't believe how she encompasses a little piece of each of us.  Hopefully, we can somehow prevent the little quirks from getting to her as well.

Anyways, our family took a visit to the pumpkin patch. And my were lots of fun things for little kids to do--corn pit, hay maze, animal petting (including a real live reindeer!)hay ride around the farm, and the best part of all--pumpkin picking! AJ of course had to seek the largest pumpkin around (which he had to carry, thank goodness!), Holly got a pretty decent sized pumpkin, and I sought out the nicest, fullest, roundest pumpkin of all (I just have a knack for these kind of things, what can I say? JK).  We had a lot of fun.  I was definitely ready to change out of my hay-filled pants at the end though :)

 OK, so maybe she did pick out a pretty good one :)
I love spending time with my family, especially with my sweet little sister. It's such a blessing to watch her laugh, grow, and learn.  I really wish time would freeze, even just for a little!  I know kids grow up fast, so I'm trying my best to keep my eyes peeled and watch every moment pass with her. If I blink, I might just miss something cool.  She's amazing!
