Can you say spoiled?!

Yesterday, Carson got a package from his grandpa and grandma Asay. Today...he got one from grandpa and grandma Foulger...spoiled little boy. Thanks so much, mom and dad, for the fun package. He loved opening it and kept saying wow with each thing he pulled out!

Now, to catch up on our Halloween activities from the past couple of days. We finally got around to carving our pumpkins Tuesday afternoon. We were going to do it for family home evening Monday night, but we ended up not having time for that. Carson pretty much didn't want to have anything to do with the pumpkins this year. We let him draw on the face that he wanted and then Christian carved it for him. His pumpkin drawings = sqaure eyes, a square nose, and a smile with no teeth. The only time we were able to get Carson to touch part of the pumpkin was when he took a seed down to the garden to plant it, and even then it took some convincing! Crazy kid!!

On Wednesday mornings, we go to story time at the Library. The lady that does our story time is the best! She always does such neat things for the kids. This week, the kids were supposed to come dressed in their costumes. They read books, got lots of fun Halloween goodies, and then had a Halloween feast consisting of little hotdogs, nachos, drinks, build your own pastries, cheese, and candy. It was fun for Carson to get to be with some other kids his age.

Tonight, Carson and I made two batches of cupcakes...not because we are over achievers...but because the first batch failed...HORRIBLY! I had gotten a new recipe from a friend that I thought I would try out. Well, let's just say they didn't turn out. I have no idea what went wrong. I'm going to have to call her and see what I did wrong. But, what I learned is that you can't go wrong with works every time! We had fun decorating them together though! Oh yeah, I caught Carson digging into the butter. What is kids' fascination with butter!?
