Pumpkin Patch 2017

The weather finally turned cool and once it did, we headed out to our favorite local farm and pumpkin patch. We were so happy my mom joined us this year too!

My girl...skipping around the pumpkin patch...
How many more times will I get to watch this??

Annual Pumpkin Patch picture...

And selfie with my pup on the way home. : )

We finished the night with take out pizza.
And decided to wait until tomorrow to decorate outside. : )

And that is what we did.
Enjoy this glorious month, my friends.
However October looks in your world. 


  1. Fall is in the air for sure!! Everything looks so pretty! You have a cute little doggie.

  2. What great fun you had in the pumpkin patch! And oh, how lovely your home looks.

    Hugs to you, my friend!

  3. Oh what fun! Lovely pictures too! And that lip color you are wearing... may I ask what color that is? Beautiful!

    Have a very blessed day!

    1. Hi Sharon!
      You are so kind!
      I am wearing a wine color that Madison brought from Denmark. It is in a little pot and I apply it with a brush. Then I put a bit of a dusty rose on top to tone it down! Lol!

    2. Lol! Well I won't be getting that anytime soon ; ) Denmark is a bit farther than the mall....

      Sharon : )

  4. Thank you for the many smiles...I noticed Aldi had pumpkins for only $2.99...sigh, I know...its not the same as a patch, smiles.

  5. Everything looks so festive Billie Jo!

  6. The best! What a perfect way to usher in October!!

  7. We have yet to visit our local "Pumpkin Patch"!!!! I remember taking my oldest grand daughter there. And even riding around in the Little Train, with her. lol Oh mercy! What we do for "Grands."

    You decorations are lovely. Wish we could decorate outside here.

    First year we were here, after building this house, we and the kids put pumpkins out, of course!!!! We live across from a college campus, and students walk down street and back, past our house.

    In the morning, we found the pumpkins smashed, out in the road, in front of our house!!!!!!!

    Needless to say, we never decorated again. :-(

    One Christmas, we had lighted wreaths on the outside of the front windows. One of them was stolen.

    They throw their trash, like fast food wrappers and cans, on our front lawn too.

    Oh it is *DELIGHTFUL*, living across from a college campus. NOT!

    The only good thing is, we have woods across from us, which is lovely in itself.

    But no decorating!

    Enjoy yours!

  8. We stopped by our pumpkin market and they wanted $8.90 for a pumpkin, I said forget it and bought 7 different melons for a dollar each. Pumpkins take over the garden so bad that we try not to grow them ourselves. We always have a volunteer until this year. I will grow pumpkins next year after seeing the prices they want for them. I love your pictures.not

  9. What a joy to see you enjoying the pumpkin patch, long may that last. Your decor looks amazing, it is such a wonderful time of year.

  10. Now that's a lot of pumpkins. Your home is all ready for fall.

  11. I love it! We are excited to go on our trip to the pumpkin patch.

  12. I love it! We are excited to go on our trip to the pumpkin patch.

  13. How cute is your mom? Love all of this Billie Jo. I know how much you look forward to this tradition!

  14. OH! what a fun time, I always enjoyed going pumpkin hunting at local farms, Your Mom is so pretty, loved her outfit.
    Your fall decoration are so lovely,. October is my favorite month, it ushers me into the holiday season ever so gracefully.. Thanks for sharing.

  15. Hi Billie Jo!

    What a fun trip to the pumpkin patch, and I loved that, Flynn and your mom were dressed for autumn! Your photos are always so fun. We have a cute pumpkin patch right down the road from us and they always do such fun things for the kids that go to pick out their pumpkin. I should take my little grands there one day!

    I'm so ready for fall, but I don't know if I'm ready for the snow and cold. It rained most of the day here, and it was cold! The one good thing . . . the trees are finally starting to change, that part, I love!

    Hugs and Love,

  16. Billie Jo, I adore pumpkin patches! You have some lovely pumpkins (family) there! Your table is gorgeously spooky! Love your outdoor decor too. We decorated outside today too. I'll post later in the week. xo

  17. What great pictures! And your mom is just the cutest thing ever!

    And your front porch is absolutely gorgeous! I'm sure you will be spending a lot of time out there this month!

  18. So fun -- heading to our pumpkin patch next week! It got warm again! Sadly, squirrels destroy/feast upon any pumpkins, so I try to wait and wait to put any out. Your house looks so pretty!

  19. Beautiful porch and great pumpkin patch moments with your kids :)

  20. What a great pumpkin patch!! I wish I had that one near me! The ones close by, you literally have to hike through a pumpkin patch and my kids always get covered in dirt trying to haul out the biggest pumpkin they can carry! Cause years ago I made the mistake of saying, "If you can carry it, you can have it!" Well now they are not so littte anymore! Haha!! And I love how your mom dressed up! Adorable!

  21. I love this October tradition! Looks like it was a beautiful day! And I love your Mom's sweater! So festive! Also love how your brought the pups with you!!!
    Your porch looks so lovely! Perfect for leave peeping and coffee sipping! ♥
    Happy Friday, my friend! xo

  22. Looks like a fun fall day...my kind of day!

  23. What a lovely day! I love the way your porches came out!
