What's better than going to a pumpkin farm?....going there with your grandchild. We all spent the day at the pumpkin farm, along with the other grandma's family, and it was so much fun. To see Francesca go on the train and carousel, and look in wonder at the farm animals was a thrill for me. Everyone around here knows that this pumpkin farm is the best one in the area, as it has everything! I used to go as a parent volunteer when my kids were in school, so it has special memories for me as well. I had my first caramel apple of the season; there's just something about a caramel apple at a pumpkin farm. My son thinks it's all the butter, and I think he's right. ; ) This song was playing when we first got there, and you can listen to it while scrolling down the pictures.
While I was waiting to get an oil change for my car, I walked across the street to the bakery. It's Nel's favorite bakery when she comes into town. He gave me a list of things to get fixed on my car. I will get to it, one at a time. Car maintenance, Ugh!
I have seen this car in front of me two times around town. The message comforted me each time.
Isn't he a handsome fellow?
Since I have two granddaughters now, I thought that it would be fun to decorate my Christmas tree with pink ornaments this year. I have been gathering old and new ornaments to put on the tree.
My sister gave me this blue dish. She always finds the best gifts. When she's out shopping and finds something, she'll keep it for that special someone, and then surprise you with it later. It's very small, but that's ok, cause I have lots of miniatures. ; )
Made a batch of brownies and a cup of tea in my Polish tea cup. This may just be my favorite dessert.
If I ever decide to get a new dog, I'd like it to be this kind.
A little of this, and a little of that goes a long way. ; )
Francesca turns one early November, so Jess thought it would be fun to have her first party in a dress-up theme. It was at Jess' mother-in-law's house, and everything turned out so nice. She had a taco bar, Jess made her grandma's enchiladas, and I made a bean dip and fruit salad.
The decorations were cute all
throughout the house.
These were the flowers
that sat on all the tables outside.
Jess dressed up as one of the
Pink Ladies on Grease,
and Francesca wasSandy haha.
I even dressed up.
I bought a pinata for the kids, and later they took their turns hitting that thing as hard as they could, until all the candy fell to the ground. It has been a tradition in our family to do the pinatas at every celebration. Francesca even took a try at it. ; )
And the cake!
Jess' mother-in-law made a chocolate cake, and it was so Yummy. I had a piece the next morning with my coffee.
Francesca looked at the cake and didn't know what to do at first, so she slowly dipped in....
