My Punkins... emphasis on the PUNK!

I realized that we were going to darn near miss our chance at our yearly punkin pics if I didn't get on it. Luckily, the punkins were in huge supply this year and there was still orange o' plenty to choose from, although there were quite a few that had seen their better porch-sitting days.

As most "photo shoots" tend to go these days, and I use that term "photo shoot" very loosely, we tried... and we tried some more... and just when I'd think we'd gotten one... I check my camera and alas, we hadn't. When I got home and started filtering through the pictures I got so tickled at what we came up with... we don't have many (if any) "good" pictures but we have LOTS that show these two little spit-fire personalities in all of their glory! And I figured what better way to showcase our morning in the pumpkins than to show... drum roll please...

The Evolution of Pictures in the Pumpkin Patch
featuring my two PUNKins... 

First click... we got ONE looker...


We had a quick mover and lifter and still ONE looker... and even a looker turned poser... well done, Chade!


Still ONE looker who was really hoping his Mommy would follow through on that fruit snack bribe... oh yes, yes... these punkins' mommy loves the power of a good bribe!


Which obviously is OH SO POWERFUL... Got a picker and looker and an almost looker...


A wiper/looker and a hand on the hipper HEY-er... she was not having any part of the sitting still... are you kidding Mom? With all of these punkins around? PAH-LEASE!


Now we have one attempting to wrangle and the other trying to escape...


Okay... refocus... look what Mommy has... ALMOST... we were so close...


Another one... are you kidding me? It's really too bad she has ZERO personality! And still a sweet looker!


Okay, I'll try these... everyone give me your silly faces!! Okay... kind of!


Now really silly... or maybe I said scary? Either way it turned out scary!


Okay... no more silly. Let's try to laugh like those cute families on Pinterest... those always turn out great... okay... it's not terrible... 


And this one is really close... post-laugh...


Then they went back to silly... or "okay, now show me your double chin!" 


Caden asked if that was a good one... and I said, not really... and he said, "Come on! Are you kidding me? That was my BEST double chin ever!" Touche!


Then I figured we needed some solo shots... 

First up... the Chade... sweet


Wanted him to sit up straight... perfect shot!


Then show me his teeth! Nailed it!


Less teeth, more smile... starting to look scary...


PERFECTION, sweet man!!


No for the Kakster... look at Mommy! Or don't...


Right here, CHEESE!! KAKI!


KAKI! OH KAKI! Look at Mommy!


(Making all sorts of trills and sounds with my voice...) KAKI!!!


Okay... let's try a different location... big bro is patiently waiting...


Okay, sit down next to Caden on a pumpkin...


Now look at Mommy and say Cheese! SASS-O-FRASS!


Be still, C! We're almost done... Kaki look at MOMMY!!!


Rearranged... new pumpkins... and go... KAKI... is this the worst thing you've ever done?


Show me your happy/excited/fun/best ever pumpkin patch faces... Not bad...


How about your BOO face... ?


Still booing...


Okay... one last cheeser... wait... a man is walking down the sidewalk... wait... no... look here... right here, at Mommy! It's just a man... you've seen one of those before right?!!


Okay... let's go explore... I'll get some action shots... 


Gone punkin huntin'...


Found one...


Me too!


Good thing she has pretty hair... got lots of shots of it!


Oh... we meet again...


More hair...


Punkin huntin' is hard work...


Prim and Proper Punkin Picker...


On the move...


Look at this one!!!


It's my fa-bor-ite!


No, wait, I want this one! I can't have it? HEY!!!!!


Check out the wagon, Kaki!!


I want to push it!


Really... I want to...


It won't go...


But I'll cheese-it while I try...


Sweet girl...


Another hair shot...

And we called it a day...

Haha. You got some good ones and definitely ones that captured their personalities. That stinker girl of yours. :)
