Henry, the Pumpkin King

Hello everyone!  Long time no see!  I have gone back to work and the first few weeks were an adjustment, so no updates.  But now that I'm getting back in the swing of things, I found I even had time for a new hat.

This weekend, we took Henry to the pumpkin patch (which we did not do last year since he was still so small).  Here is a picture:

A rare picture with mom in it!  There's a really beautiful article over at Huffington Post called "The Mom Stays in the Picture."  If you have a moment, I highly recommend you head over there and check it out.  Now, what you've all been waiting for:

It's Henry wearing a Jack Skellington hat, playing with Jack Skellington!  For those of you who may not know, I am a huge Tim Burton fan.  I particularly enjoy Nightmare Before Christmas (I know, it's not directed by Tim Burton, but his hands were all over it).

Here is a slightly better picture of the hat (Henry was a little uncooperative and more than a little cranky at the time of the photoshoot).

There we go, sour face, but nice hat:

Exhasted at the pumpkin patch with Dad:


Checking out a potential:

In the end we got 2 pumpkins, but we decided next year, we'll come for the fun, but get the pumpkin elsewhere (I think daddy was tired of carrying baby/pumpkins by the end.  

Keep your eyes peeled for a Halloween update!
