Lots o Punkins Get Tumors

Today was the last day for the pumpkin patch. I guess that makes sense since Friday is Halloween. Good thing I was on the ball this year and procured the kids' costumes early. Of course it was raining today. What's a little rain and mud among friends? The kids actually prefer it. We never escape the punkin patch without a good thick coat of red dirt anyhow.

Last year the punkins were warty- this year they had an inordinate number of tumors. You would eye what looked like a perfectly round pumpkin, only to roll it over....hmm tumors. It's not that I'm tumorist or anything....actually that is completely untrue- I am anti-tumor to the very fiber of my being. If they leave me alone- I will leave them alone- you get all up in my family and I will lay the smack down. That being said- the polls currently have chemotherapy leading by about 6 points. Not sure when election day is, but we'll let you know when the final votes come in.
Lily was the 1st to find her punkin- the older kids were holding out for bigger ones. She brought Pooh along and everyone was completely and utterly distracted by finding the perfect pumpkin for Pooh. Except for Bella who was completely and utterly distracted by getting as dirty as possible. She did everything except lay down and roll in it. Lily was perched in the wagon and Phillip and Kiera would race down row after row, run back and present her with their wares. Too sqwooshy, too icky, too pokey... and then we found it...THE pumpkin for Pooh. I guess we will all be able to rest better tonight knowing that Pooh has the perfect pumpkin. I don't remember who found it, and really it's irrelevant, the point is that it was found and the joy it brought Miss Lily and her siblings was priceless.
