We’ve been rather quiet here at Muffin Dome lately. My only excuse is this adorable toddler that I’m chasing around all day, refilling all the containers and cupboards she is incessantly emptying.
The little pumpkin cap on her head is one of my first knitting projects. I’ve been working on caps lately and they are turning out better each time. It was fun to dress up our little ‘pumpkin’ for a trip to the pumpkin patch to pick her very first pumpkin!
We took a hayride out to the patch to pick our pumpkins. (I remember the same ride last year — it seemed a lot bumpier and I was afraid I was going to go into labor with our little darling in the middle of the patch!) We found the perfect pumpkins!!
This was Evey’s first Halloween (she came 9 days after last Halloween). A few months ago I picked her up a sleeveless blue and white gingham dress at H&M, perfect for the warm summer months. Then, when she started walking, her first pair of shoes were red Saltwaters. A light went off one day when she was wearing the two together. She looks just like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. A perfect Halloween costume!! So it was decided way back in July what she would be this year. And she played the part just perfectly. Except she got an update to her wardrobe for the colder months ahead….red BOOTS! (Which she absolutely adores and asks to wear nearly every time we go out.)
She couldn’t wait to get started trick-or-treating! She was tugging Daddy out the door the minute he returned home from work!
Much more fun than eating the candy was playing with it, pulling it in and out of the bucket, laughing so hard she was cracking everyone up!
Although, she did try out her first lollipop.
Stay tuned…more to come of our Fall adventures later!
