Pumpkin Picking - Rosie's First Halloween..


I have so many posts written in my notes and I haven't gotten round to publishing them, so I'm now on a mission to upload them all in the next few weeks. In typical Hayley style, they'll either be bang on a certain day every week or you'll hear from me as and when I remember... I'm working on that I swear!



I wanted to write this post about Rosie's first Halloween because although we didn't do much, it was still fun to go pumpkin picking and letting her play with the big bowl of sweets we got for the trick of treaters. If I'm honest, the pictures were just too cute not to share ha!

We went pumpkin picking with our friends and their baby Fearne who is 6 weeks older than Rosie and it was so cute to see them all wrapped up with their hats and coats on getting the fresh air.

We sat Rosie in the wheelbarrow (ha) because did we even go if we didn't take cute pictures?! Connor wasn't too happy about me making him take his shirt off for Rosie to sit on but it was so worth it in the end. We let her touch the pumpkins and sit on them and let's be real she didn't have a clue what was going on but my heart was bursting because she looked so cute haha.

Luckily for us we went mid week and quite early on in October meaning we were literally the only ones at the farm. I know they get chocker closer to Halloween so it was nice to have the place to ourselves.

Myself and Connor went pumpkin picking last year when I was around 5/6 months pregnant so it was nice to go again and actually have Rosie with us.

On Halloween itself, obviously Rosie is too young to go trick or treating and she goes to bed between 7-8 anyway, so we stayed in and bought sweets prepared for people knocking. It was only on the day I was worried that Rosie would be constantly disturbed by children knocking on that I decided to write a notice on our front door. It sounds so stupid but with Connor being away there was no way I could be bathing Rosie and putting her to bed whilst running up and down answering the door. Plus the dog would also have been going crazy at all the knocking. Where we live we get a lot of trick or treaters, so this is what I wrote;

A baby is sleeping up the stairs,
I would hate for you to give her nightmares
So please be kind and do not knock,
For you will give her quite a shock.
But take a handful, take a treat,
And next year, when shes older, baby Rosie you will meet!

Happy Halloween!

I put this on the front door and left a big bowl of sweets outside for anyone who came. It worked a treat because not one person knocked and Rosie slept perfectly. I can't wait to dress her up and take her out next year!


I hope everyone had a fab Halloween, I'm already excited for Christmas now ha!
