I have to admit….
I LOVE PUMPKINS!!!
I have white ones, bluish/gray ones, traditional orange ones, fake ones, real ones, painted ones… See? I can’t wait for October when I start filling our home and porches with pumpkins!
As much as I love to admire them around our home, I love seeing these sweet fellas carving pumpkins. We dug into the orange pumpkins that sit on the front porch Wednesday night.
Reid usually cautiously approaches new things and slimy pumpkin parts would be no exception except his teachers at school carved a class pumpkin that day as well. He had a preview to this fun activity so that helped when convincing him to just dive in with both hands!
The big brothers cracked my up with their carving. Spencer meticulously carved his jack-o-lantern complete with a dimple on one side of the mouth just like he himself has.
Briggs, on the other hand, went after his pumpkin stabbing it to add “hair” and a “beard”. He also thought it needed a mole beside the nose just like “Nana Bug’s boo boo” (Reid points out my mom’s mole as her boo boo every time he sees her).
It was a great afternoon…
Unfortunately, I became ill Thursday night and Reid started running a fever and feeling bad on Friday. So, no trick or treating for us on Halloween, which also means I missed out on pictures and costumes! So, we’ve decided to dress anyway and at least ring Nana Bug and GrandDadE’s doorbell tomorrow. Pictures to follow.
