It's our Halloween tradition that we carve pumkins every year, so on Sunday we made donuts and jack-o-lanterns. For some reason my jack-o-lantern every year seems to end up looking kind of goofy and a little slow. Travis saw mine and said "Oh, is it sad?" That pretty much said it all. Martie's is suppose to be Scooby Doo, but it's hard to tell. Travis' is the most scary, Caleb's is the one with the little nose, and Jeff did the skull. I think they turned out pretty good! I've also been having lots of fun making fun foods for the kids to eat. My mom always sends me little cookbooks with fun recipes in them, so this year we've Monster Mouths with Ghostly Mashed potatoes, Cheesy Bat Biscuits, Yummy Mummy Calzones, and R.I.P. Brownies. The kids love it! Well, i hope everyone is enjoying Halloween as much as we are.

Pumpkin Patch

On Saturday we went to the pumpkin patch and got to do all sorts of things...face painting, feed the horse, corn maze, and pick a pumpkin. The kids has tons of fun running through the maze and of course, Caleb kept running ahead of us and I was worried we would lose Martie. The kids also got to feed corn stalks to a horse and they thought that was pretty cool. We searched all over the pumpkin patch for the perfect one for Caleb. (who know he would be so picky about a pumpkin)!

I offered to carry it for her but, Martie insisted on carrying her own pumpkin and only dropped it like 3 times!

Travis is getting a bat painted on his face. Martie got a frankestein kind of thing and Caleb got a pumpkin on his hand.

Trav showing off his BAT!

Caleb looks good in corn--I think he was meant to be a farm kid!

Caleb is humoring me. I discovered that as he was getting older, I was taking less pictures of him and I together. So recently I've been making him take pictures with me. What a good sport!

So I also noticed going through family pictures that Jeff isn't in very many of them. I asked him why he thought that was..."because I'm never around." Exactly. So I decided to make him take pictures with me too!
