This fall has gone by quickly. I think it is a combination of Eloise being in school and all of the activities we have each week. These days, the weeks, months, and years go by so quickly and feel so long all at the same time. I think that is one of the many contradictions of parenthood.
Even with everything going on, we managed to fall it up this year. There is this small, perfect pumpkin patch near my mom. We love it. There aren’t a ton of people and the activities are perfect for our girls.
Of course, we had to carve the pumpkin we got at the pumpkin patch. Margot had zero interest in pumpkin carving. Eloise humored us and even scooped out some pumpkin guts with her hands.
And of course, there was Halloween. This year, Eloise wanted to match Margot and Margot wanted to be a flamingo. So, I had to figure out how to make them into flamingos. I think I earned a mom level up for these costumes.
