Thank you for looking.  Below is the story behind our Family Pumpkin Picking Tradition

  Contest Entry on You Tube here.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Talq8NsVbk8

Every year since my children were very little we would go pumpkin picking in October and make a very special day of it.  After choosing our pumpkins we would stop at a little Ice Cream Shop for homemade ice cream to celebrate.  We would return home with our pumpkins and proceed to carve them and have a special dinner and a pumpkin shaped cake.

Since my children have grown and married and have children of their own we continue to celebrate this tradition as an extended family.  We all meet at my son and daughter- in -laws house. They usually have yummy treats on the table…mummy franks, halloween candy, cupcakes and other goodies for us while we wait for the entire family to gather so we can travel together to the pumpkin farm.

Once we are all together we caravan to the farm.  We choose our own special pumpkins and head back to their home to carve and have a wonderful feast of good food and deserts.  This is a tradition that I love and treasure.

This year I have all the pictures that we took and I made the Hokas Pokas Album that will house these pictures.  This will be a wonderful way to preserve these memories and hopefully the witches boot, the album and the Pumpkin Picking tradition will be passed from generation to generation.


Thanks for stopping by.  Wishing you many happy family traditions.
