Pumpkin fun

I made my family look into the sun for this picture. Some of us are better at this than others *wink*
 We went to the pumpkin patch with our friends the Russons on Friday.  We had already got a few pumpkins from our cousin's pumpkin patch so we were on the look out for one BIG family pumpkin.

Seriously, Mom?!?! In the sun again.

"We need one THIS big"
Aww sweet!

 Then the carving started.
 Karaia had the honor of designing and drawing the face on the big pumpkin
 Beckham felt very ambitions this year and wanted to tackle a very intricate design. He did ALL the cutting himself. I'll post pictures tomorrow.

Oh, looks like we're back to the patch again and I'm too lazy to rearrange the pictures.

 Ok, let's try again with a family picture. (On a side note, by the look of my arm it seems to me that I need to hit the weights a little more...sigh)
This the is the best one of MOST of us. Too bad Sanders looks like he might be dying. :) Or perhaps he's getting his zombie on for the up coming holiday. that I look at it a bit closer...Tennyson looks like he might be doing something more than just sitting. Oh well.
Let's play a little game called Where's Sanders

The moral of the story is that it's probably not the best idea to dress your wanderlust two year old in orange when you are going to a pumpkin patch.

The kids had a great time. Sanders LOVED the pumpkin patch and the carving. Although he didn't quite understand the concept of the carving at first and freaked out when we started cutting his beloved pumpkin up.

Karaia and Beckham are getting more independent every year. I love seeing what they come up with.

Tennyson was just happy we were together. That's kind of how he rolls.

You actually might have a good idea with the find Sanders..That would be a very cute halloween book.
