Pumpkin comparisons...

In years past, we had a favorite farmer that we purchased our stash of pumpkins. Going to his pumpkin patch became an annual tradition and a great opportunity to document growth of the girls over the last 12 months. I just have to share a flashback from 2010. 
Our regular farmer is no longer selling pumpkins and so this year, my annual Halloween "sister" picture was taken at our zoo Halloween party. 
I can't believe how quickly time has flown by.  Emma isn't a little girl anymore.   You'll be happy to know that Chris has found a new pumpkin dealer to feed his pumpkin addiction.  This is only a portion of of his stash. 
He will be pulling an all nighter Thursday to carve his 20+ pumpkins in time for Friday's party.

Party ON!

Love to see the daily happenings with the party...we are counting down to Family Day 33 which is Oct. 28th. How can someone so young have a kid that old!?!? She is a beautiful Mommy of three now and yesterday she was Josie's size!

Good luck with your pumpkin-carving! I don't envy you at all- my husband's the pumpkin-carver at our house. I'm just not interested in all the work!! Love the photos of the girls. I also love to take photos in the same place year to year and compare. It's fun to see the changes, but a little sad as well...!
