Sweet Little Photo Swap #14

Happy Photo Swap time!  Thank you so much for your photo swap prep input.  I really appreciate your participation. Seeing I didn't get a whole lot of feedback either way though, I may just keep the party the same for awhile.  We'll see.  I am a very spontaneous person by nature, so I like to be able to change things up whenever I want to!!

This past week we spent a whole day at my in-laws place picking pumpkins.  My mother-in-law grows pumpkins to sell so that she can give money to build churches in India.  It's a cool project.  So once a year we all get together (lots of people) and pick, wash, load, everything it takes to harvest pumpkins.  And I am one of the cooks since I have babies.  So everything gets done somehow!  This year she broke her record and harvested 5000 pumpkins!!  It was amazing!  {I'm pretty sure God blesses that patch extra-special since it is being used for His work.}

Here are some pictures I happened to grab from the day.  I hope you enjoy them.  (I had a few more than ten that I wanted to show you, so I hope you don't mind!)

Ally in the pile of gourds!

Whitney being a mommy's girl like always!

The pickup that took pumpkins to the shop...

The kids had a blast with the "gourd balls"!

Perfect fall picture!

She's always gotta have her horseys with her

Fun on the pumpkins

Bins, and bins, and bins of them!

This is how the shop looked with all of them in it!

These photos are GORGEOUS - they really bring out the feeling of fall. Which makes me both happy and sad at the same time. The cold is coming!
