It's the great pumpkin!

After months of watching our pumpkin grow, the girls decided tonight was the perfect time to harvest our "great" pumpkin.

Josie insisted on wearing Emma's headband on her forehead.
I don't even ask anymore.

Although our pumpkin patch only produced one medium sized pumpkin, we have lots of squash.

Being that Chris carves at least 15 pumpkins every Halloween, looks like we'll be hitting up a few of our local farmers. Here are a few of my favorite carvings from last year.

While we're on the topic of the "Great pumpkin", one of my favorite Halloween decorations is the peanuts gang that I picked up several years ago.

I just love Halloween. It's so magical. Coming soon...my Allegan Antique Market stash and my Halloween fireplace mantles!!

That is one beautiful pumpkin! I know that must have been an exciting moment to pick it from the pumpkin patch. One so special, that Josie wore a special headband. LOL! I love that girl! And seriously, could Emma be any prettier? Love the pictures!
