Summary: Baby Fritz goes pumpkin picking with his family…
Author’s note: Thanks to my beta Kat for pinking this for me. Please note that Amber and Greta also belong to her.

Video camera in hand, Bernd filmed them as Amber and their two year old son Fritz walked through the kitchen garden to the pumpkin patch. Fritz was going to pick out his first pumpkin and the proud parents wanted to get it down on film. Amber’s “wife” Greta, who was Fritz’s other mother, was there and so was Bernd’s father Wolfgang and his younger brother Dieter. Amber’s love of all things Halloween had infected the whole family and everyone was there to see Fritz pick a pumpkin.

The two year old suddenly pulled away from his mother and ran. Amber chased after him, Bernd following close behind. Fritz giggled. He thought it was a game and a fun one at that. Fritz soon grew tired of running and plopped down next to a large pumpkin. He patted it, grinning when everyone made a fuss over him. There were a few tears when Wolfgang knelt to cut it from the withering vine and also when Fritz could not pick it up. A full blown tantrum was brewing, but was luckily cut short when Greta found a mini pumpkin.

“Hey, Fritz!” she called out. “Look what I found!”

“Mama Greda!” Fritz said as he toddled over to her. “Wha?”

“It’s a lil Fritz pumpkin!” Greta showed him the little pumpkin.


“Yeah, that’s you, Baby!” Amber said as she came over to them.

Fritz was delighted with the mini pumpkin. Bernd filmed him carrying it back to the house after it was cut from the vine. He carried it everywhere, even when he went for a nap, the tiny squash was held firmly in his hand while he slept. No one could get from him so his parents took turns watching over him, so that he would not hurt himself on the stem as he slept.

That year, Amber painted faces on the pumpkins much to her son’s delight. The only one she didn’t paint was the mini pumpkin that Fritz decorated with handprints in a variation on finger painting. Bernd took a picture of them. He kept it in his home office next to the one Amber took of him and an infant Fritz riding on Bernd’s horse. Every time he saw it, he was flooded with warm memories of that day.

At some point you really should do a sticky post and link to it with the time line and cast of characters. I really have no idea where Greta comes in and how some of the characters are related (or not) to each other.

Aaah... Kat & I rp a lot of these stories(I write them up) & we tend to time-skip. XD When I have time to sit with her, I'll see if we can come up with a time line of where our cast of characters fit in. Sorry, it's so confusing, that's not our intention. XD
