So last night we finally decided to carve up some pumpkins! I can never get the darn things to keep more than a week so I save the carving for just before Halloween. The kids had so much fun! Aileen and Braxton helped scoop out the “guts” and then Joseph and I carved the designs Aileen picked out. I did also buy a Glow-in-the-Dark painting kit so Aileen could paint a pumpkin, it’s still a work in progress.
Braxton enjoyed crawling around us and using the pumpkin as a teether. Poor kiddo has a mouth full of teeth trying to come through and he’s chewing on everything! Three teeth FINALLY broke through in the past couple weeks, but his gums are still swollen 😦 Anywho, it was fun to have him nearby and engaged. He didn’t seem to mind having his hand in the pumpkin guts either. He played in it a little, but when he started shaking it around mom decided he was done haha Sorry, but we have enough bugs trying to get in, I don’t want pumpkin attracting anything else! (Side Note: I could never truly live in the country. Kyle is just outside Austin and is semi-country so there are a ton of bugs and spiders crawling around. I could only imagine true country living. Gives me the heebie jeebies!! Ick!)
Here’s a look at our pumpkin carving adventure.
P.S. I’m obsessed with collages (if you couldn’t tell) – Photogrid app for iPhone and Android 😉
