The "Punkin" Patch....

We love Texas in the fall ---when it is not raining. We are over the rain in the Alford family but will be wishing its return when August comes. This weekend we went to see the Big Orange Pumpkin patch and Aida had a blast....she calls it the "punkin" patch but never the less, we had a great time. Friday night, we carved pumpkins and Daddy really tried to get Aida to stick her hand inside and pull out the sticky pulp but this princess wanted nothing to do with that. Every time daddy would pull out the pumpkin seeds and stuff Aida would say "eewwee yucky." She loved the glowing finished product but was not that into the process :) We had so much fun.

Mommy made this outfit as one of my first successful sewing projects...I love how cute she looks in it....

Aida loved the "cow" she was really trying to get it to "moo" at her, but the cow was not interested. She would say "sit down cow" and really expect the cow to follow instructions.

Going down the slide with Daddy...we did this like 6 times and it clearly was not enough, she loved it.

Working on pumpkin carving. We had so much fun doing this project with her. Daddy did all the work and I cleaned up during the process but Aida loved it and the mess was totally worth it.

Here she is posing with her finished products...I love that smile. Daddy has mad pumpkin carving skills.

We also got our second bumble bee costume in. This one was my first choice. She looks so stinkin cute in it. She wore this the whole night and really didn't want to take it off to sleep. I love that Jackson is in the picture too...he always has to be right in the middle of whatever it is we are doing with her because he thinks he is a baby too!!!

I hope everyone gets to enjoy their fall days like we are....this is such a great time of the year.
