After our trip to the pumpkin patch this year, it was time for The Pumpkin Patch Parable. This year we didn't make it through the story because a friendly neighborhood kitten decided to come join in on the fun. Seth got so distracted we opted to read the story later and let him enjoy the cat while we went through the pumpkin cleaning process. Later, I carved and painted our pumpkins to make them look like lanterns (an idea found on Pinterest).
I love how they turned out and they fit in perfectly with the rest of our usual autumn decor.
