We had a fun weekend with the Halloween party, carving pumpkins, and then Stephen also took the kids to the Coffin Races. I wish I had pictures from the Coffin Races. There must have been an amazing Cruella Devil there, with a team dressed up as Dalmatian dogs because that is what Ashley has her heart set on for next Halloween. She even wants Jerrica to dress up as a Dalmatian dog.
Anyway, here is our carving this year. I handed out prizes for “Best Eyelashes, Happiest Jack-o-Lantern, Most Scars, Best Animal Silhouette…”
Pumpkin carving is so messy, but always so fun for the kids to create. We were extra excited this year that we grew our own pumpkins!
This morning the little girls ate breakfast with their little Jack-o-Lanterns. Their conversations with them made me smile. Inanimate objects just come alive as they give them personality and dialogue.
