The Voice star Christina Milian and her 3-year-old daughter Violet hit Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch in West Hollywood, Calif. on Saturday (October 12). The pretty pair enjoyed some Pillsbury cookie decorating at the Pillsbury Make Halloween Sweet event benefiting the LA Regional Food Bank.

“Violet and I loved making Chomping Monsters cookies with our friends @Pillsbury today! Try the recipe with your little ones #Halloween #spon,” Christina posted via Instagram.

She added: “#MrBonesPumpkinPatch with my darling! With @pillsbury! We just had such a good time. Plus they’re donating 5k to the LAFood Bank. That’s awesome ;) #Blessed.”

And in other news, here’s a spolier alert!

Christina and her professional dance partner, Mark Ballas, were stunned after being sent home during week five of Dancing With the Stars Season 17 on Monday, October 14.

“I was shocked, for sure,” the singer, 32, told reporters after the show. “I’m not saying it should have been anyone else, but — to be honest with you — after having a great performance you feel a lot more confident, but in the back of your mind you know a lot of this is determined by votes.”

She added: “A lot of it has to do with that and we knew last week wasn’t the best week based on everything with Julianne [Hough] and all the stuff that happened, so we weren’t sure what the outcome would be. I guess it just didn’t work out.”

Last week, the single mom and her dance partner received some controversial criticism from guest judge and former dance pro Hough. “There were moments where I felt like choreography-wise, I felt like it was two people dancing side-by-side rather than together,” Hough, 25, said. “So I really want to see [Christina] shine. I’ve danced with Mark. You have to stand in front to make sure you’re seen.”
