A Very Thankful Prayer By Bonnie Rickner Jensen {Book Review}

A Very Thankful Prayer By Bonnie Rickner Jensen and illustrated by Natalia Moore captures the Autumn season perfectly. The cover of the book draws you in with shiny foil leaves falling from the tree and being swept off the ground by the wind. The book is geared toward toddler, preschoolers, and anyone else that is captivated by this particular season.

The board book format makes it so it will last for a long time. It consists of 24 pages that I no doubt feel will be turned again and again.  The colorful illustrations are such a joy to look at.  The characters are friendly animals that are enjoying everything that’s to love about Fall. There are friends playing with each other at the park, families picking pumpkins together, gathering apples for pie or to make candy on a stick, celebrating Thanksgiving together, roasting marshmallows by the fire, helping others, and so much more!

Precious Moments has been around for as long as I can remember. In fact, my very first kids Bible when I was a little girl was themed with the well known illustrations. I’m pleased that the lovable characters and charming imagery continues on to new offerings. Speaking of which, you can only imagine my excitement to learn of the Precious Moments: Happy Harvest book. This wonderful collection of Bible Verses, Quotes, and Autumn themed poetry is it the perfect offering to enjoy during the Fall season with each one of my three children.

Annual Pumpkin Picking

P1160507-001We have had quite a full schedule lately! I’m going to admit that for me, Summer is a very lazy season plus I just don’t tolerate heat too well. When Autumn hits, I’m very energized and tend to get the family out to celebrate the season in its fullness over every other one.

P1160509-001 On Saturday we visited our local pumpkin patch! This has been our third year visiting and we plan on continuing the tradition with our kids for many years to come! Our outing was cut a bit short, due to heavy winds and rain on the way. Wind gust were so strong that people were losing power and there were down trees around the area. My mom whom resides in North Carolina even told me the town where my husband works was mentioned in the news.  So definitely noticeable blustery weather!

P1160513-001As a family we picked one pumpkin each to carve for Halloween! Four may seem like a lot of pumpkins but we really enjoy being able to support our local farms and I might even gotten a few more! Other than carving designs and faces into the pumpkins I’ll be roasting the seeds to snack on! My kids couldn’t get enough of the oil and salt  oven roasted pumpkin seeds last year. There weren’t many leftover but whatever was we shared with the birds and squirrels in our yard.

P1160501-001Pumpkin farm photos are some of my favorite to look back upon. Melody was all smiles as usual but Owen was wearing down for the day. We had actually been to the Howl-O-Ween Zoo event that morning and stopped by the Pumpkin Patch on our way back home. He was totally ready for a nap. Thankfully no melt downs just pout faces when I asked him to pose for me. Good thing he’s so cute right?
