Pumpkin Patch Kid
Does anyone else remember Pumpkin Patch Kids? They were knock off Cabbage Patch dolls. I totally got one for my fifth birthday, and I remember being more than slightly pissed. Bomma bought me a REAL Cabbage Patch for that same birthday (thank god). She UPSed it (I remember waiting in the window like a puppy because I KNEW my doll was en route), but it was a day late because she had to fight off thousands at a K-Mart to get it (may have had to camp out for weeks, for all I know-- Cabbage Patch Kids were very popular in 1983). So, until Ursula Carmel came in her triangle-shaped box, I had to make do with Pumpkin Patch Penny, who wore a yellow dress and had yellow foam arms and legs.
But I digress.
Here's Harry at the same pumpkin patch last year (clearly, we went earlier in the season last year because there were WAY more pumpkins left. We had slim pickings this year).
He totally has shiny ittle doll cheeks in this picture.
Look how little he is with the sign!
I'm telling you, the kid has a thing for apples. We were in the cute little store buying apple donuts and caramel apples, and Harry saw bags of apples and went nuts, saying "Apple! Apple" really pleadingly like we never give him fruit and just force Malomars down this throat all day.
He was not sure how he felt about the dirt all over the side of the pumpkin
A little bothered.
But still curious
Loved the wagon
and the wheel barrow
and whatever the hell he's pointing at
Here's his POV on the pumkin carving
He was super serious at first, but as the cute little pumpkin face emrged, he got excited
Not sure about the gooky pumpkin insides (note that he's wearing breakfast-for-dinner all over his face)
Because we're huge dorks (as if you didn't know) Ben and I carved our pumpkins, too, after Harry went to bed. Here's the finished product:
Kind of 3 Bears-ish, huh?
