This past weekend there was a break in the rain, so Mike, my parents and I took Annabel to the pumpkin patch.
At first I thought she was going to hate it, as evidenced by her expression above. Madeline HAAATED the pumpkin patch.
Of course, Maddie wasn’t really into putting anything that wasn’t nailed down into her mouth. Annie was like, “HAY! MUST PUT IN MOUTH NOM NOM NOM!”
Annie loved it. So much to do! So much to look at! And she was the center of attention!
She got to ride in a wagon, which we all know is awesome.
She got to be silly as a pumpkin and witch.
And so did Mike:
One of my favorite pictures with Maddie was at the pumpkin patch:
Now Mike has a picture like that with Annie:
We have our pumpkins, now Annie just needs her costume!

Awww, poor Maddie, she looks so scared of the pumpkin! All the photos are so gorgeous Happy Autumn to you!
Her cheeks. OMGoodness, her cheeks. Makes me wanna go nom nom nom. I hope you all had a good time.
These photos of Annabel are precious and oh my goodness, the bow in her hair is so cute. I’ve seen the photos of Maddie at the Pumpkin Patch before but one thing I can’t believe I overlooked was her fabulous shoes!
We have some pics of our little girl at the Pumpkin Patch last year and what makes them so classic was when my hubs put her face in the scarecrow cutout. You see his big head sticking out on top.
I zeroed in on those fabulous shoes, also. Such a little princess! And her sister, what a hoot! That girl is so stinkin’ cute, I just want to squeeze her!

The picture of Annie’s cute smiling face in the witch cut-out has got to be the cutest thing I’ve seen in a lonngggg while!
Looove Annie’s bow. And the photo of her eating hay… the best!
It made me giggle as it’s just so Annie.
The picture of you and Maddie…simply gorgeous.
It is so cool to see how each of your kids looks just like their parent in their respective pictures. Maddie looks so dainty and sweet. Annie looks like she is planning to conquer the pumpkin patch!
Annie is Mike’s mini me!
Best picture, ever….’til the next one!

Love, Love, Love babes in a pumpkin patch!
Adorable pictures!! I love the one of you and Maddie.. She is so missed!!
I cant wait to see what you guys are going to be.
What a bitter/sweet day for you. I’m glad Annie had a great day! The pictures are PERFECT!!! Thanks for sharing!
Happeh bebeh is HAPPEH!!!!! I love it! And I love the pictures of Maddie at the pumpkin patch, even though she was so unhappy to be there! I like seeing how both of your daughters react so differently to the same events. They are both so adorable.
She looks so much like her Dad!
Patti B. says:
What awesome pictures and awesome memories for you Can I say that Honor Warren resembles Annie in the picture where she is saying Hi to her Bampa? Do you ever hear that from anybody?
Sorry that Maddie didn’t enjoy the pumpkin patch as much as Annie, but her pictures of the day are just beautiful to look at
Love the photos!
The pic of Mike and Annie is adorbs.
I love how in the hay-eating photo Mike’s hand is reaching out like “NOOOO! Stop eating that!!”
Sarah R says:
Adorable!!! Elise has that same top (as Annabel) by the way.
These might be my favorite pictures you’ve posted. The one of you and Maddie is precious, and I just want to nibble that delicious Annie! Where do you find such cute little girl clothes? They both had adorable duds in these pictures. Of course, when the kids wearing them are so cute, anything will look good!
That is a beautiful shot of you and Maddie, I love it.
Annie looks like she had such a good time at the pumpkin patch. So happy, so beautiful.
Those pics are awesome!!! So sorry Maddie didn’t like it all that much but so excited that Annie did! That kid rocks a toothy grin like nobody’s business!
What gorgeous photos of gorgeous girls! I love the one of you and Maddie and the one of Mike and Annie is just perfect! Hopefully you got one with you and Annie as well:)
What an absolutely wonderful picture of Mike and Annie.
My gosh that girl is beautiful! Love all the fun pictures and glad you all had a great time! The picture of Mike and Annie is priceless. He looks so happy, she looks so happy. It’s just breathtaking.
that last pic of Mike and Annie is priceless. totally frame-worthy!
These pictures are amazing and it looks like Annie had a great time!!
Too cute! We’ve got pumpkin patches all around us and have yet to take our kids. Maybe one of these days….
I love the little pumpkins. Fall is my favorite time of year, by far.
i just wanted to finally comment and say that i have fallen in love with your blog over the last couple of months. the daily pics of annie are so sweet and i love how real you are with your posts! you’re an inspiration!
She is absolutely gorgeous. And the pitures of you two with your girls are amazing.
Sigh, I was really hoping to get Nater to the pumpkin patch but I don’t know if we’re going to make it this year. SO CUTE. Your girls are gorgeous, as usual. xo
Oh my such cuteness! Looks like a great time.
This post reminds me that I need to get my kids over to the pumpkin patch!
What a sweetie! She has cheeks that rival my own little chunk-monkey’s.
Maddie is so dainty and Annie is so chunky! And both are so sweet. Two of my kids were polar opposite like this, and I love the chub, and I love the small, put her in my pocket too! So sweet. My Bryson loved eating the hay too, dove out of my arms to get his mouth on it when he couldn’t bring it to his mouth. He’ll do that with the nailed down stuff too, liking heater vents and whatnot, it’s awesome, right?
I laughed so freaking hard at Mike in the witch. FUN-NY.
The way Mike is looking at Annie is exactly like he looked at Maddie in those beautiful sunny photos, so sweet. Seeing them so close to each other makes me realize how similar, and yet different they are. Maddie looks so thin, beautiful and fragile while Annie is full and joyous and full of attitude! What beautiful children you have.
She is an absolute chubby little doll!!! I just want to hug her
love the pictures… you can feel the love! thanks for sharing!
Beautiful pictures! I haven’t really thought that Annie and Maddie looked a lot alike until these pictures. On your home page the picture of Maddie was right next to the picture of Annie sitting on the hay and I was just blown away by how similar their sweet smiles and expressions are! They are beautiful!
Snarky Mommy says:
So freaking cute!
She is just a doll — love the witch picture of her!
Michelle S says:
She is adorable !
Rumour Miller says:
I love the pumpkin patch!
Looks like Annie does too!
lovin the little hair bow in Annie’s hair. I guess I disagree with everyone in that I think Maddie favors you and Annie is a replica of her daddy. But I do agree that both girls are beautiful!
Great pics!! Annie is getting bigger and cuter every day (is that even possible?).
Sarah Macon says:
That pic of you and Maddie is SOOOO cute!! Looks like fun! We haven’t made it yet!
DE Heather says:
Glad to hear that she liked the Pumpkin Patch and that photo of Mike and Annie together is amazing!
Annabel seems like such a happyer, personable little girl!!
Can I just say geezzzz she is totally looking like Mike – that is so stinkin cute!!
Looks like so much fun!
And, I gotta say, the fact that you two are such amazing parents just jumps out of those photos. I especially love that last one of Mike and Annie, you can just tell how much he loves her (I’m a sucker for daddy/baby pictures).
love the photos! Annie’s little teeth are soooo cute =)
lisa @boondock ramblings says:
She’s got the chubbiest cheeks! Love it! Looks like you all had a blast!
Annie is a doll! Her pictures make me smile! You can tell how happy and loved she is!
So sweet! Love the pictures!
There is something about Annabel that makes me want to break out in a huge grin every time I see a picture of her! She is so stinkin’ cute!
You make beautiful babies. truly. Happy Autumn
Love. I don’t know what it is but pumpkin patches seem to bring out the super best snaps of the kiddos.
Both of your little girlies – so pretty and so stylish!
Love the pictures! Looks like you guys had an amazing day together!
Jennifer Dawn says:
Ahh, what a little pumpkin! Eating those double chins!
A-freaking-dorable! I can just about eat Annie, she is so cute! And the picture of you and Maddie in the pumpkin patch is really precious.
