I wanted to spend some alone-time with the two older boys, while Jaxon was napping. So we visited a local pumpkin patch. I was planning on buying the usual orange pumpkins, maybe grab a white one (yep I have a wild side - watch out!).
But once I saw the gourdes and pumpkins through the boys' eyes, my boring pumpkin plan changed. Mason found one gray pumpkin and he was thrilled. I didn't even know gray pumpkins could grow. Brant found these green gourdes - "look mommy snakes!" What a great idea I thought. So with the help of my creative kids, this is how we decorated our porch this year. I love it - like the way it looks but most of all like that we created the idea together.
