Tonight we took Cooper to his first punkin' patch and everyone was oohing and awwing over his hot dog costume (see honey, I told you he'd be cute, lol). While we had a great time (we even trick or treated at Pappy & Nana's house afterward), I was like a mad mama on a mission:
1.) The sun was already setting by the time we pulled into the parking lot so I was rushing around trying to get "THE" shot in the 5.75 minutes of daylight we had left and
2.) Coop was OBSESSED with playing with the pumpkins, the hay, the dirt or was looking in every other direction BUT toward the camera, so of course, that added to my urgency. Men!

But, I have to say, for his first trip to the patch, bedecked in a bun, I think our little Halloweenie did "purty" good. (He even happily endured a wardrobe change atop a hay bale halfway through - it was such a mommy moment).

My little hot dog early this AM before heading to daycare.

Stuck in traffic on the way to the pumpkin patch in Flower Mound. He was ONLY looking at me because I was taunting him with a bottle, lol.

Chris poses with Coop at the pumpkin patch - sans whinning! (I'd threatened him within an inch of his life before we arrived, lol).

Wardrobe change perched on a hay bale in the middle of a pumpkin patch - NIIIICE!

Gimme' dat punkin'!!!!

Yee-ha! We finally found someone to take a family photo for us in front of the house of pumpkins (the self portraits didn't turn out so hot).

We swung by Nana, Pappy & Aunt Jess' house as a surprise "trick or treat" visit.

Coop chillin' with Pappy.

Nana is thrilled to see the little halloweenie.

Yes, Mom had to end Halloween by doodling on the derrière. Oh, well, Coop can hate me later. =)

-smell you later-
