Pumpkin Patch - WIN

Last weekend was not fun for Charlotte so we tried again today and it was right before a big rain so the sky was sufficiently defused to make great photos with zero shadows!

Charlotte insisted on bringing her new favorite blanket; the cowgirl hat was my idea.

Where'd the Pumpkin go?

Here it is!

Dad! You know I can't share magician secrets!

Later that evening we had a family Halloween celebration with steak, garlic and mashed potatoes followed by this lovely pumpkin chocolate cake with cream cheese icing and chocolate chips for decoration. I used a sheet cake recipe and added 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree and 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice. The orange icing totally reinforces the pumpkin inside which makes every bite very tasty!

Awww, She is so cute! I like the puzzled look with your caption, "Dad, you know I can't share magician secrets!" Although, from my perspective, her pumpkin grew in size! What a magician she is!

Nice cake! Save me a piece! (((FOUR DAYS!!!))) Can't wait! :)
