This evening we did one of our annual
fall traditions - visited the local pumpkin
patch and let Emma pick out just the right
pumpkin for our "pawch" ("porch" in Emma-ese).

Isn't my little pumpkin the cutest?
I couldn't resist sharing some of
these pictures. I love fall and pumpkins
and get so excited when I see Emma love it too!

Also, I've gotta share.
I'm in a bit of a panic right now.
I just got done doing something I swore I
would NEVER do. I cut my kid's hair.
I know. I know. How could I?
I survived the infamous bowl haircuts
performed by my mom in the 80's.
You'd think I would have learned.
But, you see, we were desperate.
Emma has taken up hair twirling and
started getting lots of knots - a few of which
I had to cut out after some horrific tug-of-wars.
So tonight we HAD to even things out and
get back to a length we could manage while
trying to un-teach the bad habit. My husband
swears she looks fine, but I'm secretly
freaking out that my little girl looks like
a soft featured little boy. Oh me.
Deep breaths, Teresa.
