Scary Pumpkin Patch

A story from Laura in celebration of Halloween.  Due to Sandy, she and Jason got two days off school.  The wind howled through the night.  Fortunately, our power has remained on and we didn’t sustain any damage to the house.  

One blustery night in October, Farmer Brown checked his crop of pumpkins to make sure they were nice and comfy.

The next morning, all his pumpkins from his crop were gone!

He walked quietly back to his house and told his wife how horrible it was to lose his entire crop without even a single clue or a pumpkin.

The next morning, he saw that all his pumpkins were back in place. Another farmer with a golden hat had brought them back. He carved them into jack o’lanterns.

The next morning, Farmer Brown knew just where the jack o’lanterns were…

… at people’s homes. Farmer Brown was happy that he sold pumpkins and they turned into jack o’lanterns.

Happy Halloween.

    Glad that you have weathered the storm well. If the willow had not come down earlier, probably this storm would have been its demise. Very creative story by Miss Laura.

    Laura did a great job telling and illustrating her story!

  3. LOVE that story! It should be an animated halloween special from now on, like the Great Pumpkin.

    What a great story. I was just thinking that I had not seen a post from you in a while (although my blogging has been a bit spotty lately.) Hoping all is well with you and your family.

      The winter doldrums caught up to me this year. I’ve missed reading your blog and sharing stories. Thanks for leaving the comment – it was a reminder that I needed.
