My Kitchen

Pumpkin patches + pumpkin cookies

Sharing post from last October….


This week we brought the kids to a pumpkin patch and baked cookies for our neighbors. We gathered leaves from our yard to create leaf rubbings with a variety of crayons in fall colors. We then cut up the paper into gift tags to put on the cookies.
