Very true. Now that we have a child, we agree that there is no more skipping holidays, which is why its funny that halloween was almost here before I looked at the boy one day and said, "We have to take the bean to the pumpkin patch!" Some of my favorite fall memories include taking a hayride out to the pumpkin patch where I searched and searched for the most perfect pumpkin to bring home. I wanted to start that tradition for the bean as well.
And decorated it up.
Dressed as a chicken.
And didn't miss out on celebrating her first holiday.*
*I think we get a pass for the 4th of July. She was 4 days old, we took a picture. Good enough!
