We were taken aback at the cost of the pumpkins. Do they know we can get similar pumpkins for $4-$6 at Kroger??? But of course
Sunday brought us gorgeous weather so we set up camp in the yard and carved the pumpkins. Sammy wanted in on the fun too (or really wanted the banana in Caroline's hand)
Maggie was the official pumpkin inspector
Caroline scooping the guts - notice the banana still securely in the other hand
This is the best I could do to get a picture of the girls with the pumpkins. BTW what is with all the pink?? I don't think they've ever been so pepto-bismal.
Maggie's already outtie
Evidently when our pumpkins spoke to us, Jonathan's said it was scary and mine said it was sad (or pooping, according to Caroline).
Fast approaching is Halloween. Caroline's request for costume has changed several times. At first she wanted to be a ghost. I don't know where she learned about ghosts, but it is her current obsession. Then, when shopping for costumes, she HAD TO HAVE a lady bug costume. Now, she wants to be a cat. And of course we have the aforementioned "let it go" dress that was handed down from a friend. It will be a beggars night decision.
As for Maggie, we are looking to dig up the spider costume that we used for Caroline when she was that age. If we can't find it, we'll head to the kids consignment store to find something quick. If that has to happen, I'll bet we'll end up with another option for Caroline too.
