The Holidays are here and this is the time we’ve been looking forward to the very most with Seven!  When we lost our first child right before Thanksgiving, two years ago, the holidays were gut-wrenching.  Then last year as we waited for Seven’s arrival, it was a time of cautious anticipation.  Now he’s here and we finally get to start making family holiday traditions.  This season is finally full of nothing but joy, and we finally got to take our son to the pumpkin patch to pick out his first pumpkin.  I just feel so… grateful.

Gentry’s Farm is the cutest little family farm you’ve ever seen and it’s conveniently located right across the street from our neighborhood.  We mosied over a few weeks back on a lazy Saturday afternoon to greet Fall, pick some pumpkins, eat some popcorn, and take a wagon ride around to see some baby cows.  I got the cute family Fall photos I was wanting, and Seven got his first taste of dirt.  It was perfect. :0)

Happy Halloween Everybody! :0)

    Sean, Mel, Seven is absolutely precious. Gentry’s Farm looks much like a place we have here in Rossville; Uncle Tom’s Farm.

    Seven is so, so precious, and I can’t believe how big he is. Standing up now! What a big boy. The one of him eating dirt has me cracking up. The three of you are so cute, and what a perfect little pumpkin patch you found! I’m a little envious- we never have anything even close in South Florida.
