Anybody? ­čśë

I’ve always wanted to enter a scarecrow into the scarecrow contest… and I finally did it!

I thought it would be fun for the girls and me (read: me) to put one together to represent “daddy”. So I┬ámeticulously painted patches, wings and a helmet to look exactly like their squadron. I was pretty doggon’ ┬áproud of it.

And then I got to the pumpkin patch.

…and realized I was a kitten playing with the big dogs.

(Is it just me or is there a beam of light coming down from the heavens and shining on SpongeBob? Did I capture something divine?! Can anyone else see that?!)

I personally enjoyed Honey Boo Boo (above).

haha

But The Lorax won.

Which wasn’t surprising. ­čśë

I had fun making Lt. Pumpkin Pielot.

And do you know what the consolation prize is for the non-winners?

We get our scarecrows back. ­čśë

The pielot is coming home.

And after all of the work I put into him, I’m bronzing him and putting him on display above the mantle. Forever.

Layla and Emma enjoyed riding around the pumpkin patch.

…but Layla enjoyed running around the pumpkin patch even more.

…while Emma snoozed half of the day away.
