...they receive the reward. Or at least a lot of pumpkins. It's that time of year again, and the pumpkin patches have popped up all over town. Families have been visiting each day to pick out their pumpkins..for decorating, carving and eating. We went by a few weeks ago...to pick out our pumpkins to complete our fall decorations. We paid a small amount, but it's worth it for the kids. They love running up and down the rows to pick out their favorite pumpkin.
Well, tonight they close down the patch for the year. And there were a ton of pumpkins left. They told me to come on the last night and pick up. We showed up and got a ton of pumpkins...about 25 to cook down and about 10 for the goats to eat. All for free...how awesome is that! There were still a ton left in good condition. So, you know what I will be doing in the next week. Cooking these down. The kids were yelling when we got home with our load, "pumpkin pie, pumpkin pie." There will be pie, bread, muffins and soup all year long. Thank you Lord for the blessings...and once again for the memories.

Who knew...16 years ago this journey would look like this? Sixteen years ago these kids weren't even alive...lol. Our oldest actually took the picture, as she was on her way to class at college. Now, truth be told...this picture took several times to take. No, we weren't waiting for any babies to smile...just for my youngest, yes my 10 year old, to get himself together. He still has a funky look on his face, but I will take it. Not everyone is happy all the time. And one day we will laugh at this picture and all of Judah's antics. These treasures have made this journey incredibly difficult, but it's been worth every step. I am so blessed to be their mom. And glad that I get to be their mom. Blessings on this next year!
This girl has been caught taking selfies on our cameras. We don't realize she has taken them until we look at our phones. She is so cute...and so preteen. As we are winding down the teen years with Bryn...we are in the homestretch, we see several more beckoning. Caleb will be 13 in one month and Esther is 11...and she is just bursting to be a teenager. She still has that softness of a little girl, but we keep on seeing glimmers in her life that are totally "TEEN." The entrance of selfies is a prime example. Love it. She has always been our quiet, keep to yourself girl...but all of a sudden she is becoming a social butterfly. Lots of friends...texting them on her tablet ( you should have seen my face when she sent me her first text)...small temper tantrums. It's in the mix..and Matt and I feel a little more prepared this time. We have some experience...we know what to expect...what to pay attention to and what to just ignore. By time we are done with this load of kid…
