Wholesome Halloween

We usually do a fun and cute Halloween, every now and then we make it a little scary (for my older children) but for the most part we keep it fun.

We put out the jack-o-lanterns.....

Throw around a few pumpkins....

Add a few bales of hay and a cornstalk or two......

Make the entry festive.....

with a wreath hung upon the front door.......

Colorful mums fresh from the farm

Pumpkins tumble onto the porch from an antique crate....

The beauty that shimmers in the yellow afternoons of October....
who could ever clutch it?
Ralph Waldo Emerson

My family headed to the cornfields to pick a few of those perfect pumpkins...on a beautiful October afternoon. 

It is a fine art...picking out the perfect pumpkin....

Just when you thought you had the perfect pumpkin......another one is spotted...hiding....
The kids can never make up their minds, they select carefully.  They take their time.

 The perfect afternoon to go on a pumpkin hunt turned into the perfect afternoon to snap some photos....


PUMPKINS anyone?

The inside is all decked out in it's fall finery too...maybe .more to come.?

Have a safe and fun Halloween!

Take care!
