Carving Pumpkins

We love Halloween around here. Not so much all the ghoulish, scary stuff, but the kind of fun silly stuff. Normally we get the house all decked out and everything. This year, the house has been neglected due to my inability to do much more than make it halfway presentable after daycare and Joe being very busy at work and with the bishopric. By the time we got around to the point of thinking about doing it, Halloween was nearly here and so we decided to focus our efforts on winning the trunk or treat trunk contest instead. That will happen tomorrow night so stay tuned for pictures of the scary results.

Anywho, for FHE this week we carved pumpkins. I don't really love carving pumpkins. I am not very artistic and it's just a big mess. The kids and Joey love it and so I let them do it for the family, helping out when needed. This year I was super impressed with Kelley as she did almost her whole pumpkin herself, including coming up with her own design.

Tyler had a great time watching dad carve his.

For me, it's just fun hanging out with the kiddos and hubs and watch everyone enjoy themselves so much.
