Carving Pumpkins

I love creating and re-establishing family traditions! I grew up in a home that had a lot of traditions, especially around the holidays. We went to a pumpkin patch, carved pumpkins and trick or treated every year and our family carried over a lot of the same traditions while creating some of our own.

This year we added a new tradition! We read/watched The Pumpkin Patch Parable and learned how the farmer in the story is just like the Lord, planting us, helping us grown, cleaning us out and making us lights that shine for Him!
