This morning we passed a local church with a front yard full of pumpkins.
Actually, this was the same pumpkin patch we visited last year with Helen at 4 months old, where I propped her up against giant pumpkins to get some cute pictures. She would slump over, I'd prop her back up, and take a few more shots.
This year, she wouldn't even stand still. I could barely get her to look at the camera, she was so excited to pick up the little pumpkins and carry them around.
I really don't know a better way to get in the mood for Halloween than to watch a little kid get this thrilled.
