We are down to the wire and tonight was the only night this week Ryan will be home so we decided to carve our pumpkins (well, 2 of them at least). Now, I’m all about getting into the holidays- decorating, activities, etc etc… but I do have to say, carving pumpkins is not a favorite project of mine. I really don’t care for it at all but for the sake of tradition and creating memories, carve we did.
Last year we attempted to get all creative and print off patterns from online. It was a pain. in. the. ass and this year I decided we’d do the traditional Jack-O-Lantern face on one and a Mickey Mouse silhouette on the other (Porter is really into Playhouse Disney lately!). Not real creative, but whatever.
Porter was grossed out by the guts of the pumpkin, so of course Ryan and I got the fun job of cleaning them out. I saved a bunch of pumpkin seeds to hopefully plant in the spring and grow our own pumpkins next year!
Yesterday I was pretending to be Super Mom and did quite a few projects with Porter when I got home from work. We played with Play-Doh, painted with water colors, made footprint ghosts with both the boys and a cute fall tree. I love kid projects that incorporate their hands/feet… I want to create a collection to look at throughout the years and see how much they’ve grown.
