Pumpkin Carving

It's taken us a while this year to get on track of our yearly pumpkin carving. So much so that - dare I tell you? - I bought our pumpkins at the grocery store. Eek! Ok, there's really nothing wrong with that. The pumpkin picking in our house is a big production though. We go to the pumpkin patch and pick the pumpkins. There's fun activities for the boys to do and we make a day of it. So going to the grocery store (by myself, not even with the kids!) makes me feel a little guilty. 

Finally, Sunday was carving day. Even though the littlest Sun Kissed Boy was feeling under the weather, he was sure not to miss daddy carving his pumpkin.     

It's not just a jack-o-lantern face to be carved. Sun Kissed Boy #1 used my iPhone to pull up an image of exactly what he wanted in case daddy could not make out his drawing.

Getting the mush out is squishy fun!

I wanted to be in the pictures too but Sun Kissed Husband's hands were gooey & goopy. It's tricky to shoot a picture of yourself on manual mode with your arms stretched out. I could only get a little bit of me in. That's ok, at least I captured my good side. :)

The R, for Robin, was the invention of Sun Kissed Boy #3. Sun Kissed Boy #2 designed a nose-less jack-o-lantern face. Sun Kissed Boy #1 wanted a Batman logo. It's a little extra jagged at the bottom but he didn't seem to mind.

After looking through these pictures, I realized how silly it was of me to stress about the store-bought pumpkins. My boys would have enjoyed the pumpkin patch but the family time that we spent together carving is what stays in their heart. No matter where the pumpkins come from.

We didn't make it to the pumpkin patch this year either....and yep our pumpkins came from the grocery store! Though you are a step ahead of us because ours still haven't been carved! I love the picture with you in it:)
