The Pumpkin Patch

By: Katherine Seeley

Every October, my family and I go to a pumpkin patch and pick pumpkins. It is a staple piece during the spooky season and it solidifies the start to Halloween. This past weekend, my boyfriend and I went to the Gilbertsville Farm. We picked pumpkins, went through a corn maze (which took forever and if it were not for him, I would have gotten lost) and went home to start carving our pumpkins with my family.

This is something he has never done before and I wanted to show him how glorious pumpkin carving is. We set up our pumpkins and thought of our designs we wanted to do. He went with an owl and I picked something from the stencil kit. You may think using a stencil is not fun but I get frustrated when my own designs do not turn out how I want, so a stencil kit is the best option for me.

We had a lot of fun carving our pumpkins and they turned out kind of decent. Once we were done, we debated on whose was the best and turned out the lights and lit the candles to see them in all their glory.

 After carving our pumpkins, we put on a classic halloween movie that many people love, Halloween Town. My boyfriend has also never seen the most beloved halloween movies we all love, so it was my duty to introduce him to these amazing movies. Once the movie ended, we made those Pillsbury halloween cookies and ate them. It was the perfect fall activity.
