Pumpkins

So I'm a bit late in blogging about our Halloween festivities. Aren't we all? It seemed like Halloween went on all week long around here. It all started on Monday, when we decided to have Pumpkin Night for Family Home Evening.

We have had a big pumpkin sitting by our front door for about a month now, and it was time to carve that baby up for Halloween! So first we had the girls draw out what they wanted the jack-o-lantern to look like.

Kelsey really got into it.

Olivia, on the other hand, has figured out that less is more in pumpkin carving.

Once they agreed on a face, Mommy and the girls started scooping out the inner muck of the pumpkin. Then, while Daddy carved, the girls decorated pumpkin cookies. And if you want to check out the fabulous recipe for these babies (I invented the recipe myself), click here.


The girls enjoyed eating them, too!

Alas, Daddy couldn't quite get the eyes on the jack-o-lantern the way the girls wanted them, so he did his own scary version instead. Once Daddy was done carving the pumpkin, the girls had to pose with their own scary faces! (Yeah. I'm really scared.)

Spooky, huh?

LOVE the new picture at the top. It's so cool to see your little toddler walking right in the middle of his family.
