“I got a rock.”  Charlie Brown

Happy Halloween!  Today didn’t exactly go the way I had planned.  It was a whirlwind from the moment Baby Girl woke up.  We had a full day ahead with a trip to pick up GG (92 yr old Great Grandma), run a few errands with her then off to a Drs appointment in the city.  On the way, we stopped in to see another of GG’s Great Grandkids – this one only 9 months old.  We had a very nice visit – then off to the Drs office we went.  What usually takes only 1 hour expanded to just over two hours . . . not an pleasant thing usually with a two year old in tow.  However, dressed in her Shirley Temple Halloween dress . . . she enchanted everyone in the waiting room.  Following the Dr’s visit, we headed to the airport where my sister was actually checked in to her hotel finally!  (lol – only a day late)  By time I dropped GG off at her Condo and got her settled in, then drove home, it was after 7pm, pouring rain, and too late to take the little one trick or treating.  We live in a neighborhood that is very rural.  I’ve never had a single trick or treater since we lived here.  So . . . we snuggled on the couch and watched some Toy Story and off to bed she went.  She’ll get to really enjoy it next year!

Linus: “Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere.  He’s gotta pick this one.  He’s got to.  I don’t see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one.  You can look around and there’s not a sign of hypocrisy.  Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see.” It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

My Great Nephew’s pre-school class took a visit to The Apple Barn, a local farm that has many fun and education activities for kids.  I was fortunate enough to tag along and had a blast!  One small part of the morning was a hay ride out to the Pumpkin Patch.  The kids were told that if they could pick out one pumpkin for free, but they had to be able to carry it off the field themselves.  The biggest obstacle was – so many pumpkins to choose from!  He walked around picking one up by the stem and hefting it to see how heavy, then would drop it rejecting is as too heavy.  He did this time after time after time . . . until he found this one . . . the PERFECT Pumpkin!  The look on his face is priceless!

I love moments like this . . . watching a child discover and explore and figure things out for themselves.  And I love that I get to be there to document it!
