Never Too Old for the Pun'kin Patch

Dear Ones, we're really not ever too old are we? Naw! I love this Fallness of season, even though it really doesn't feel like it! Well, it did for a couple of days. Our temps were in the 60s! Fallness of heaven!

I'm fooling you, there are not pun'kin patches around here.

Believe me, I searched high and low!

Near but not too far.

Then I came upon a wonderful nursery which was filled to the brim with Fallness of pun'kins!

Mini Fallness of pun'kins...

Big ole ghost Fallness of pun'kins...

Little ole bitty Fallness of ghost pun'kins and little orange ones...

Wheel barrows filled with Fallness of medium sized pun'kins...

Mums, Fallness of mums...

Dancing bears? Well, yes! They are so filled with joyness because of the Fallness of the season!

Oh, and olden looking wooden wheel barrows filled with our most favorite Fallness of fruit, or is it vegetable?

Thanks for popping in to see me today. Have I told you how much I appreciate each and every one of you and your comments? Well, I do!!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

The Pumpkin Song

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate
(five fingers up)
The first one said "Oh my it's getting Late"
(Hands on Cheeks)
The second one said "There's a chill in the air"
(arms around self)
The third one said "But we don't care"
(swing pointer finger)
The fourth one said "We're ready for some fun!"
(hand in air)
The fifth one said "Let's run, run, run!"
(running motion)
So woooo went the wind, and out went the lights,
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!
~sung by the Pumpkins

  27. Sheila-I am so glad your daughter and the baby are going to be okay! I have been praying for them both. Now, how are you going to decorate that nursery if she won't find out the sex :)? I remember learning this song in music in elementary school!

  28. Oh what fun, Sheila! So many pumpkins. I'm so glad that your daughter and baby will be ok! Have a wonderful evening.
