Pumpkins

Last Wednesday, we made our annual trip to the pumpkin patch. This was the lastest in the season that we've ever gone, so our selection wasn't all that great. The pumpkins were mostly small (which is fine with me). The boys managed to find their pumpkins pretty fast because they were more interested in the tractors around, bugs on the pumpkins, and all the rotten pumpkins! Maybe next year we will be a little more focused!

Carson's pumpkin!


Showin' some love to the scarecrow!

Our plan all along was to carve pumpkins while my parents were here last weekend since they didn't get to go to the pumpkin patch with us, but we never got around to it while they were here. So, Monday, for FHE, we carved our pumpkins. Neither of our boys were too thrilled to stick their hands inside the pumpkins and pull all the "guts". It wasn't until Christian threatened that we wouldn't do pumpkins next year and a few times of being called a girl, that Carson decided he could do it! We even kept the seeds this year and cooked them. They boys thought it was a great family home evening treat!

You guys are always doing such fun and cute things! I love how the boys wouldn't put their hands in the pumpkins... we can relate at our house too! LOL! Happy Halloween!
BTW- Your playgroup is so much fun! I wish ours did half as much things as yours does! Maybe I'll just have to start planning them... MAYBE!

Those are some cute boys with some cute pumpkins. Lol that's funny that they wouldn't stick their hands inside the pumpkins. I hate that part too, but I guess I am a girl.
