Date Weekend and the Pumpkin Patch

I know it's November, but it's never too late for pumpkin pictures, right?  RIGHT?  There are no jack-o-lanterns here,  so the way I see it, we're doing good. 

Before we get to the pictures, I think I must do a little something to commemorate our fun October date night/weekend.  Back in March, we had planned to go spend the night at our wedding night hotel to celebrate our five year anniversary.  When the actual day rolled around, we knew that we weren't ready to leave Emily yet overnight, so we nixed it.  Fast forward seven months, and we found ourselves ready to cash in that date night.  We decided to stay at the Omni Dallas to see what all the hype was about.  It certainly lived up to our expectations!  It was beautiful with great views of the city, tons of space, and a TV in the bathroom mirror.  Seriously.  After we checked in, we headed to Northpark to walk around a bit and to have dinner at Maggiano's.  SO yummy!  We then headed to Barnes and Noble for a quick book purchase and then back to the hotel for some relaxation, cable TV, and my first experience with Duck Dynasty!  The next morning we ordered room service and took our time getting ready before going to see a movie.  It was a much needed time together away from all the distractions that fill up so much of our life.

That evening, we loaded up the Highlander just like last year and set out for Hall's Pumpkin Farm.  This patch is located on one of the few working farms still left in the DFW area, right in the middle of Colleyville.  Emily was a bit harder to contain this year, but at least she could sit up without toppling over, which was a huge improvement from last year. :)  We had a great time, got a few pictures, saw some friends, and ended it all with yummy Rosa's.

Sweet excitement

I could seriously eat those cheeks.  And I've tried.

Our least favorite face and the one we see more and more these days!

I'm done, Mom!  See you later!

Remember that face I told you we love so much?  Here's its twin.

I am loving this time of year!  I can't believe Thanksgiving is already here, which basically means Christmas is here.  We are excited for this season and all that it means!
