Project 52
The Great Pumpkin

I'm never going to complete my Project 52 list, but I'm doing better than last year. I think it's a learning experience, and I'll get there eventually. This past weekend, I was able to check off one more item.

24. Take the kids to the pumpkin patch.

We went to Michaels for supplies then headed to the pumpkin patch. Each kiddo picked out a pumpkin and painted them their favorite colors. Red and black for Little Man. Pink and purple, of course, for Little Bit. By the time they were done, they were both covered in paint. Thankfully, it washed right off.

Here are some of our fave celebs visiting the pumpkin patch too.

Halle Berry, Usher, Heidi Klum

Nicole Richie, David Arquette, Gavin Rossdale

Tori Spelling, Amanda Seyfried, Chris Noth

"Dear Great Pumpkin, I am looking forward to your arrival on Halloween night. I hope you will bring me lots of presents. You must get discouraged because more people believe in Santa Claus than in you. Well, let's face it; Santa Claus has had more publicity, but being #2, perhaps you try harder." -- Linus, It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

I love the idea of painting them. Rather than carving them and having them rot on my porch a day later. Drawing flies and bugs. No I'm not a halloween grinch.

What 'pumpkin patch' did you go to? The one on Germantown Pkwy close to Trinity??! Bhahahaha!!
I want to try to take my kids to Priddy Farms on Sunday before the church rush.

I don't think I've been to a pumpkin patch since I was a kid. I'm a little jealous!
