The leaves are starting to turn and the nights are becoming cool and crisp. The time for our annual trip to Pumpkins Etc. has arrived, we are running a bit late this year! But we make sure to never miss this trip.
We only have three of our youngsters with us this year, Ben, Megan and Jamey, but we sure do miss Zach and Molly. They are all growing up so fast and going off to conquer the world! One of the best blessings that God rewards us with as parents; is the pride we feel when our children are confident enough to go and make something of themselves. Zach is serving our country and on deployment right now and out on the ocean somewhere. He can't tell me where he is and as a mom, I find that a little worrying. I pray constantly for his safety, but I am so very proud of him and the sacrifice he is making to keep all of us safe. May God bless all our children on their journeys.
Pumpkins Etc. is run by Bill and Kathy Wright,
their farm is just east of Platte City, Missouri.
Their four children started the pumpkin patch in 1984, but they have now all grown up and are on their own.
It is always wonderful to see
Kathy and Bill.
Of course the kittens that they have every year are always a big draw for our kiddos! At the end of the season all the kittens are adopted out.
This pumpkin patch has been our favorite since our boys were little. Here are a few early pictures!
So if you love fall as much as I do, please get out their and celebrate the season, because it goes by quickly! Winter will be here before we know it!
I created Work of Whimsy as an outlet for my creativity! I create christmas ornaments on my day job. I had so many ideas that I wanted to bring to life and this was the perfect way. I can create whatever I want and if I am lucky there is someone out there that wants to buy it! So far it is going better than I expected!
