Pumpkin Patch

Emily with her friend Brigham.
I love buying pumpkins and gourds for our mantel.
I also bought this chest at the pumpkin patch. They have a country store at the farm. I loved the design and size of this. I am going to paint it and put new knobs on it. I love projects like this. I may do it something whimsical and put it in Sarah Kate's room.
A friend at church did these shirts for my girls. Although, it was NOT smart to wear white shirts to a pumpkin patch. They are soaking in Shout as I write this. They may never look the same. Emily managed to get into oil on the tractor.
Sarah Kate wanted to pick up all the pumpkins. She tried so hard to pick up some of the huge ones.

Natalyn and Neely. I love Fall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

FUN!! I love taking the kids to the pumpkin patch! We're going to go in a couple of weeks in preparation for our annual "Pumpkin Day!" Love the shirts! Sometimes hand sanitizer takes out stains.

There is this stuff you can buy at the auto store called Brakeleen, it is in an aerosol can. Use it to the remove the oil. Put your hand under the spots, spray it on the spot, rub with your finger, may take a few sprays, don't let it dry. You can then respray with the Shout then wash immediatley. It is crazy how it works. My girls got grease on them walking thru my parents garage and my Dad took the clothes and used the Brakeleen on them, came clean!!! It is awesome on pretty much anything. I keep beside the shout!!!

Thanks for sharing the pictures Laurie. Looks like everyone had a great time. Sarah Grace had a blast!
Oh, I love the pics of the cute! Looks like you guys had fun!
Oh that looks like fun. We are going tomorrow!
Soak in the Oxyclean powder if Shout fails. It gets out everything. I have two boys, so I am soaking clothes daily!

Is that a public farm/patch to take kids? I live in Fayetteville and am really wanting to take my 2 year old to a pumpkin patch but I don't really know where any good ones are?!!

Your girls are just too cute!!!

Hi Laurie, I'm Stacey and found you through Kellyskorner..I love your pictures! We are heading to the pumpkin patch in our neck of the woods with our MOPS group on the 19th! I can't wait..anyways I have 2 kids A little girl who is 4 almost 5, a little boy who turned 2 on the 4th of July and a little girl due in Dec....Anyways sorry i'm going on and on, but i just LOVE the Oxy Power spray ....It gets EVERYTHING OUT!! and my mother in law swears by Lestoil, Its such an old product and smells terrible but it gets out everything Oxy clean spray doesn't! Which isn't very much! I get the Oxy-power spray at walamrt, and now it comes in a huge refill container too, its blue with a yellow spray cap!! LOve it!! HOpe you have a blessed day and you get those stains out!! Hope that helps a little!!

What fun! It looks like a great pumpkin patch. Your girls are so pretty. I am planning to take Mary-Kate to a pumpkin patch next weekend. I hope we have as much fun as you did.

Put Dawn dishwashing liquid on the oil stain, let the shirt sit and wash. Should get it out. I use it for all grease based stains, even ones that have already been through the wash.

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
