It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown is a staple in this house. It's pretty much a standard from here on out that Charlie Brown inhabits our house at least once a week (or more) until the end of the year.
The Great Pumpkin just kicks it off each year. Mack wanted her costume to be a sheet with a bunch of holes in it and go as Charlie Brown, but this idea was abandoned upon realizing no one would give her a rock so she could utter, " I got a rock."
Our annual trip to the pumpkin patch also seems to set this momentum in motion. ❤
This year was no exception, there seemed to be a warm, cheery, magical glow to the pumpkins as we approached. Smiles spread across my grouchy, sullen preteen's faces. This made my heart smile.
I created a layout using some awesome Glitz Raven which can be found in the Paper Issues store! I'm not enabling you or anything, yes, yes I am and I'm not ashamed. Paper Issues has scrap amazingness in the store right now and you're totally needing to go and get some.
Here's some extreme closeups of the Glitz goodness:
