Fall Favorites 2009

Two favorites today.

First, Halloween pajamas. Snuggly and cute.

We Skyped with Caroline before pumpkin carving.....wishing the whole time she were here with us.

We love Skype!

Onto the carving. Blake did his best to gross out Jack.

And, it worked.

Lainey helped more this year than ever before. Last year, she spent most of her time eating the pumpkin. See that here. She looks so different now!



It was chaotic and messy and frustrating and fun. That is life with children!



Our 3 pumpkins......mimicking our punkins.......Jack, Lainey and Carter. I think they kind of look like them!

Blake took everyone upstairs for bath and I got to clean up this mess.

Then, with everyone squeaky clean and ready for bed, we lit our masterpieces. Job well done, kiddos.


Roasted seeds and they were delicious......then packed some for Carter's school snack today. We're joining him this afternoon for his class party. Providing some of the food and helping serve the kids. I'm sure Jack and Lainey will be a huge help.

Don't you?
