It was a very nice day to be out.
The kids and I took our time looking for pumpkins, we were just enjoying the weather and our time together!
We always get 4 little pumpkins for each member in our family. We each decorate our little pumpkin any way we wish. We also get one BIG pumpkin for our family.
Caiden had already decided on our big family pumpkin and was asking Bailee if she liked the one he picked out.
Bailee loves the little pumpkins the best!
Caiden loves to see how tall he is. He is forever measuring himself, especially with me, for you can see, he is as tall as his mommy!! WOW!
I love roaming through ALL these beautiful pumpkins.
Caiden, Bailee, and I picked out our little pumpkins, and then we decided on our big one.
The little man helped us bring it to the front.
He put all our pumpkins in a little red wagon, BUT Bailee decided that she wanted to pull the wagon herself, and the man so kindly let her! We had so much fun at the Pumpkin Patch!
So, I gathered up a few Halloween decorations and set up our table for carving. I found a couple of cute decorations at the Dollar Store, and I found some really cute goblet cups from them to have for their after school snack.
They were so surprised to see that I had everything ready to go! They ate snack and we got started!
They first drew an outline of their faces.
I do not like my children handling any kind of knives, but I did let them somewhat carve the pumpkins. They made the incisions, but I was mainly the one to cut out the pieces.
Now it was time for the Family Pumpkin.
We love working on this pumpkin together.
Bless Bailee Grace, she does not like the smell, so she told Caiden he could be the one to take off the top of the pumpkin! Caiden could not believe that there was soo much stuff inside!
I sat and worked a while on the carving, and I am not crafty at ALL, but I think I did a great job!
The finished product!!! We then took all pumpkins outside. I think we all did a great job!
