Lavender Hill Pumpkin Patch

We took the kids to Lavender Hill Pumpkin Patch this past weekend to pick out our pumpkins for Halloween. The patch is a local, small organic farm and we had gone there last year. The kids picked 4 pumpkins and then also recieved tiny pumpkins as a gift from the farm. When you buy your pumpkins, they give them names. I'm trying to remember the names ours got... one was "Prize Winner" and another was "Orange Smoothie". I think it's funny that they name all of their pumpkins. The big ones had pretty funny names.

New Living Room Floors

Just about 2 weeks ago, while Brian's parents were visiting, we put new flooring in the living room. With the help of Brian's dad, brother Dan, and BIL Dan (yes, there are two) it was done in less than a day from start to finish! This is the same flooring we put in the dining room about 6 months ago. It feels so nice to cross another room off the "To Do" list!

This is the living room before we moved in.
It was actually designed as a formal living/dining room
but as we have no use for either, we decided to make it our
main living/family room. The chandelier in this pic
was replace with a ceiling fan/light.
Our living room now. I have two more pieces of furniture
coming. One is a console/sofa table that will go
under the window to the right and we'll use it as a sort of
charging station for phones, etc. The other is an
end table to go under the clock. Both are white.
One day, we'd like to add a piano.

Here's another view of the room.
The front door is there on the left.
The fixture on the couch is Ashlyn. ;)
