Cutest Pumpkin in the Patch!

Today was gorgeous outside, perfect for going to the pumpkin patch!
Look at our big girl!

Morgan and our neighbor's son, Troy

She tried to pick up every pumpkin she saw....

Til she found the perfect one!

She was so proud to carry it all by herself!

Last year: (sniff sniff...she's so tiny!)

18 Months and Counting!

Morgan went to the doctor for her 18 month check up and everything is wonderful! She weighs 19 lbs 5 oz (STILL not on the chart), and she is 31 inches tall, (10-25th percentile). She is just a little peanut! Cullen (the precious 6 month old I watch during the week) weighs 17 LBS! A year younger than her and just about to pass her in weight!
She now knows her shapes and is close
to counting to 20! Can sing chunks of the alphabet and loves loves LOVES to sing! She sings "Twinkle Twinkle" and "Mary had a Little Lamb", and "Frere Jaques". She made up her own song the other day:

Where is Daddy? Where is Daddy?
I don't know.
Where is Daddy? Where is
I don't know, I don't know.
Where is Daddy?

He's at work!

On Sunday Morgan spent the day with Grandma and made cookies for the first time! She stirred and stirred the oatmeal and transferred it from bowl to bowl. It was messy, but she had so much fun. Grandma even bought her an apron for the occasion. (Wish I had gotten a picture of her stirring the oatmeal, it was precious) Thanks Grandma for a fun day!

And finally, after drooling over the cute Halloween decorations on other blogs, I decided to do my own (for cheap)!
The mantle: I feel like it needs something else but I figured its ok considering it only gets displayed for 31 days :)

Got the glass jar in Canton last weekend (20 bucks!) and went to Hobby Lobby and got 3 little pumpkins, hot glued them, then wrote BOO. I also cut up a black feather boa and that went into the bottom of the jar (also HL). The frame I already had and I just printed out a picture of a raven.

The twigs in the glass jar I already had, just added little bats! And the mongrammed pumpkin I saw on another blog and loved it! So made my own and glued some feathers around the stem.

This is the table in my entryway...I got the argyle pumpkin in Canton and used some of the cut up boa to make a wreath for it to sit on. And for the black feather wreath on the mirror, I used a hanger (bent into a circle) and hot glued the remaining boa on it. Voila! Cute.

Close up of pumpkin....gotta love Canton. 12 dollars!

And my Prissy Plate that I got at...where else...Canton! Love that I can change the color of ribbon for the seasons/holidays. Here is orange/white for Halloween.

And I found this at Canton (my whole house is Canton, I'm telling you, it's the best place EVER), and my mom had the idea to put these little pumpkins on there instead of candles. Might be fun to do beaded balls for Christmas? Anyways, I love it! It is so fun to decorate for Halloween and fall!

And one more thing....I found this sweet sign in Canton also. It greets our visitors when they come to the front door!
