Pumpkin-ing Through the Years

I was scrolling through the camera roll on my phone recently and found a few recurring themes in my pictures. (Remember my first day of school series with Vivien?) Well, I thought it would be fun to post another set of photos. And since I don’t live in the country … or on a New England farm … or in the terrifying pages of a Grimms’ fairy tale, our annual “pumpkin patch” is created by a little church just around the corner. It’s been a nice place to watch my kids grow over the years.













That’s not a typo. I can’t find 2008. I am a flawed human being. Sigh.


One of my favorites of Dave’s many creations. It’s always better when he’s in town to do the carving. I’m best left to seed roasting, Charlie-Brown-watching and costume acquisition.

Spoiler Alert – Expect a Halloween costume series if I can get myself together in the next week.

Just remember … I said IF! 🙂

  1. Thanks for the smile!! 🙂 They are so stinkin’ cute. Great job carving, Dave!

  2. This is so sweet! I love that you have pictures of the kids each year (I’m sure the 2008 ones will turn up!) ,even though it makes me feel like quite the slacker! Very impressive carving by Dave – and I look forward to seeing the costumed themed post next week. You can do it! 🙂

  3. Very cute pics. Your kids are so stinking adorable. I don’t know if I have any pics of Em sitting still with her pumpkin. Most are action shots of her running off with the biggest one she can possibly carry. Can’t wait for the costume pics.

  4. I loved this.🎃💙

  5. That’s a pretty freakin’ impressive pumpkin!

  6. It’s wonderful to see through-the-years photos. 🙂 And the carved pumpkin is awesome. I wish we have orange pumpkins. The squash varieties we have is either dark green or pale yellow.

  7. These are great. It’s lovely to see the kids grow through the years, but how wonderful that the theme just kind of emerged and you saw your family tradition emerging through the photos.

  8. Adorable pictures! Love seeing through the years! And that pumpkin carving is AWESOME!!

  9. That is so cool! I always forget to take pictures like this!
    And that pumpkin is wicked awesome.

  10. CAN’T FIND 2008!?!?!?!
