I have to say I make sure we do it every year, but it is not one of my most favorite activities...Pumpkin Carving! This year we went to Papa's Pumpkin Patch and the boys got to pick out their favorite pumpkin. I was prepared to help them carve the pumpkins when Stephanie (a previous babysitter who is living with us temporarily) said her sister was coming and they would like to carve pumpkins with the boys. I very happily said yes!!
It was so neat to see this year the boys really get into it. Ryan even dug out the insides.( in years past he would not even reach his hand inside.) Kyle also did a great job and was excited when his was done and looked great.
Stephanie even baked the seeds and they actually tasted great. Then they did some pumpkin painting and the boys loved that as well. Stephanie has a very special relationship with the boys and it is great that both Stephanie and the boys love doing things together.
We went trick-or-treating with our good friends the Murch's again this year. The boys... I mean the Mummy, cowboy on his horse and Nemo the fish had a great time!!
