Pumpkin Patch Visit

We have never been to a pumpkin patch before.  It wasn’t something I ever thought the girls would enjoy.  Now Pinky is older and she has been getting excited about halloween because they have been doing loads of preparation for it at nursery, I thought it might be time to go.

What fun we had!  The girls were excited from the moment we got out of the car.  Pinky was off!

‘Look Mummy!’ ‘Lets go this way!’

I couldn’t stop them, they were picking up pumpkins left right and center.  They loved the witch statue, the witches hats, even the spiders in the webs.

Eventually we found a little pumpkin that Pinky could carry and we went and bought that one to take home.  She held her chosen pumpkin all the way home as if her life depended on it.

If we have time, we will go back again this year, if not we will definitely be back next halloween.

Halloween Biscuits

As Halloween is fast approaching and my Instagram feed is fill with beautiful pictures of pumpkins and autumnal colours I decided to jump on the bandwagon and join in the best way I know how…. with baking.

For this I used my biscuit and icing recipe from my Iced Gems post.  I rested the dough in the fridge for an hour which made it much easier to roll out and I baked it for a little longer as the biscuits were a lot larger.

This was the end result:

I would make a few changes to some of the decoration next time, especially to the ghost and night scene ones but since I thought these up out of this air I was impressed with myself.
