Pumpkin Picking in Petaluma

I will openly admit that I completely love the holidays. They are absolutely my favorite time of the year. For me, the holiday season officially kicks off when I buy my first pumpkin. My fiancĂ© and I have now begun a tradition (this is the 2nd year), where we head out of San Francisco for the day and head to a pumpkin patch. I was so excited all week for our adventure. Think I'm joking?

Nope, I wasn't. My fiance found a wonderful pumpkin patch in Petaluma (north of SF) for us to check out. It was an unusually warm day, but that didn't stop me, I still dressed festively. TC, on the other hand, was dressed like he was on vacation. You win some, you lose some I suppose ;)

We had a great time at the farm looking for the perfect pumpkins to take home. All-in-all we ended up with 10 pumpkins. Our home is going to be extremely festive this year!

Next weekend I'm planning on decorating some of them. I haven't tried painting my pumpkins before but I think I'm up to the challenge this year. I've pinned quite a few images to my Pinterest so I'll just have to decide which to go with. Well okay, maybe it will be about which is easiest :) Until then, here are some more pics of our adventure.

What about you all? What traditions do you have to get ready for the holiday season?
