A few weeks ago Emmett’s nursery leader from church had all of the nursery class out to her farm for lunch and to pick a pumpkin. This is a tradition that my kids always look forward to participating in. It was a gorgeous fall day and all the kids had fun. Sister Clark made the kids sandwiches and shared her homemade apple cider. They got to feed and pet the goats and even ride on the 4-wheeler with her. It was a fun morning and we left with a good size pumpkin to come home and carve.
Emmett wore his cowboy boots and then once he had the boots on he insisted he have a mustache drawn on. I was happy to get Gage in his carharts again since last time all the boys were in them I didn’t get any pictures.
Then last week I got to go with Adelle and her kindergarten class to Stoney Ridge. Another nice day and lots of fun. Adelle requested that I bring, “baby cutesy (Gage)” but Jeff ended up being home so the boys stayed with him. Smart little Adelle remembered the way around the corn maze from last time we were at the farm a couple weeks ago. Thank goodness!
Last night we finally got around to carving the pumpkins. This month has been a marathon and I think every day either Braxton or Emmett ask when we get to carve pumpkins. So finally last night that’s what we did.
The kids really got into it. Gage climbed up to the top of the table to join in the gooey fun. All the kids were elbow deep in pumpkin flesh. That’s a good time right there.
We have to finish the last, and most difficult pumpkin tonight. Braxton wanted his to be carved Voldemort. So that’s what we are working on tonight. Last night we did Adelle’s Hello Kitty pumpkin and Emmett’s ghost pumpkin.
