{Pumpkin Men, Class Parties and Carving Our Masterpieces}

::pumpkin men::

dave and aubrey put together our pumpkin snowman this year.
we haven't done that in a few years and she thought it was the funniest thing.
she got a little grossed out during the drilling and dowel part but she got over it.

here's a little peek at the first time we built one in 2006.

here comes jane in my shoes to help.

why oh why didn't i get a better picture?:(
::class parties::
so lucky to be able to pop into aubrey's pumpkin party.
one of the many things about staying home with these angels i am most blessed to have...flexibility and freedom. (thank you baby!)
they had five little centers:
fishing for treats
sweep the pumpkin down the hall
bean bag toss
pin the nose on the pumpkin
and trick or treat...where they drew a card to do a trick for a treat.
not the greatest pictures...but a lot of sweet memories.
anyone else totally wigged out by plastic teeth....ahh...shivers....:)
she looks so shy and nervous sometimes.
but always smiles for her best friend rachel:)

lucky me...i helped at janey's party too.

hermione and her best friend the cupcake.
tough to get these two in one shot in a crowded classroom.:)

::carving time::
look out for daddy's with pumpkin gut removing drill attachments:)


seeing those pumpkin discovery faces never gets old.
love riley's as aubrey takes a peek.:)
one last hug before the faces come.
and yes, i do have a sentimental one who is sad to carve her pumpkin.
throw it away in november too for that matter....any guesses??!!:)


meet two harry potters and the silly girl.
have a happy day,

  1. Hey, why are those kitchen lights so low???? You know I'm just kidding right? Can't ya hear it in my type?

    I love your happy family pictures. This year we were busy the night before Halloween so we had to do our carving on Halloween afternoon. But with all the crazy drive to my parents and some car sickness thrown in our carving was mostly done by dad this year! Oh well, next year remind me to carve a few days ahead, k?

    Love the happy look back at the past pictures. And Janey in the big shoes... priceless.

    You've got it all girl... a beautiful family, happy memories and lots of love.
