Pumpkins!

Why is it that pumpkin carving always sounds more fun before you're actually elbow deep in the never ending pumpkin goo? I guess it just always seems like more work than I remember it being from the previous years, but it wouldn't be the same without a Jack-O-Lantern on the front porch this time of year so I always get excited to carve pumpkins.

This year was no exception! My sister-in-law Erin, our friend Joanne, and I decided to brave it and carve pumpkins with our three little ones on Friday night. It was actually pretty fun, but definitely a lot more work than in years past. I'm sure it didn't help that we were close to bedtime when we decided to start.

Dillon had a blast! He was totally into digging in and finding the pumpkin guts. While Isabelle, on the other hand, wasn’t too sure sure if she liked it or not and if she did, she sure wasn’t going to let us all know. Cassidy enjoyed having these big orange things to support her in standing and had fun crawling through all the mess. =) We didn’t exactly get finished products when it was all said and done, but it was fun to get together to visit and watch the kids interact. I can't believe how much little Cassidy has grown! I'll have to post a picture once we finish our pumpkin, hopefully sometime this week.

Patiently waiting to start.
Big girl!
Izzy was a little shy with Cassidy, but enjoyed watching her from afar.

But once she warmed up decided Cassidy needed a... pumpkin scrub?!
(Sorry if you had pumpkin goo to wash out of her hair, Jo!)

Having fun digging in! (Check out that messy dress!)

Diggin' in some more with Mama!

He must have found something pretty neat in there. :)

After cleaning up Dillon thought he needed to wash
his face with the left over pumpkin slime!

And thought it was SO funny!!!

Nice and sticky!
Looks like someone was trying to eat the pumpkin guts... Time for a bath messy kids!!
