Pumpkin Picking Fun

Halloween is almost here! Have you picked your pumpkin yet? Last Sunday, we went to a local u-pick farm to gather our pumpkins. I also loaded up on gourds and mini-pumpkins to create a harvest centerpiece for my dining room table. My parents joined us and the kids had a ball!

Because we had had lots of rain leading up to Sunday, I finally had the opportunity to break in my Hunter Wellies. Although, I think I need to wear them with a darker pair of jeans. Not sure. Perhaps I thought I would resemble Gwyneth when she sported her pair with Mario Batali and friends during "Spain - On the Road Again." Yeah, pretty delusional, huh? Oh, well. They kept my feet dry as I trudged through the mud.

Tomorrow afternoon is set-up for my Junior League project. The event itself is on Saturday. It's a huge Halloween extravaganza for children affected by cancer. A lot of work has been put into this event and I'm hoping it goes smoothly.

The weekend is almost here, folks. Hope you have fun activities planned!

What fun in the pumpkin patch with the family. Enjoy those wellies. Also will you post on the Junior league event? Love to see pictures. Good luck with everything.

Did you pick the perfect pumpkin? I want a pair of wellies ~ I found a JCrew pair with bullies on them but passed on them ~ bad choice!

Have fun with your event this weekend.
