Last weekend we went to another pumpkin patch because Elin loves them and talks about them all the time. We went on a Friday evening which worked out well because the weather was beautiful and there was not much of a huge crowd. Elin was on a mission for a square pumpkin like Spookley the square pumpkin but alas he was nowhere to be found. So she settled on a many others instead.
We have more pumpkins than we know what to with.
This particular orchard and patch was very pretty and picturesque. There was a “cool bus” to pose with and Elin was excited to pose with her Papa.
Then on Saturday there was a Halloween party at Gymboree. Elin was so excited and had been talking about it but let me tell you—when we got to party she threw a huge fit and was not in a party mood. Her costume has a big tutu so I changed her in the back of the car when we got there and she was not a fan of that. I think that is what set her over the edge. When we got inside, she did not want to take her shoes off so they let her keep them on and she spent the first party of the party pouting and being anti-social. Isn’t that the saddest little puppy on the floor?
She perked up when she started noticing all the decorations and the non-spooky haunted house.
She spent a good party of the party in the haunted house with her pal Kelsey and they were very taken with this little ghost that made ghostly noise. They would get in there and just shriek with happiness.
I thought the wall of felt monsters was rather creative. They had a huge piece of blue felt up and then dozens of felt parts and pieces to make your own monsters. Elin seemed to really enjoy that as well.
Then is was time for a snack and a monster craft. Elin was excited to see pumpkin pretzels. She currently loves pretzels!
She did a great job on her craft and we left a littler happier than we came.
