Because of the growing number of children, we've decided to have a family pumpkin that everyone contributes to. In the past everyone picked out their own. The kids did each get a pumpkin from a local (free!) church event, which was really fun, but they are too small to really carve. I picked up this beautiy for $1.99 at ALDI. Got to love ALDI.
I think this is one of my favorite pictures of the boys. It just totally shows how they interact. Right on top of each other.
I noticed after I took this picture that LMM was indeed sitting ON the table. I guess he was as wrapped up in the carving as I was and he crawled himself right up.
Eyes were Rosebud's pick, nose was LMM and mouth was Snug. I think that #1 did a great job carving.
Um. Yeah. We let her sample the guts. She liked it :o) I'm not surprised as she loves squash and sweet potatoes. Wait till she discovers there is pumpkin PIE!
So here is our family pumpkin with all the little pumpkin friends. Don't be fooled, the large pumpkin in the back is a faker. It is foam :o)
Snug loves life. At eight years old, he is a big brother four times over, a role he takes very seriously. He loves to read, swim, run, play Legos, and hear stories. He is sensitive to the needs of others and has a very kind heart.
Little Monkey Man
Watch out world! This middle child is not about to be left out of anything! Formally known on this blog as "Baby J" he is a baby no longer. His sense of adventure is downright dangerous and he will push your buttons all day long. This six year old is very generous and has a sweet smile that will light up a room. Don't let him use his "eyes" on you or you may fall under his spell!
Four years old and quite the little lady. Not sure what we'll do with all of her emotions, but loving watching her grow. She loves ballet, preschool, and church and all of her friends-both real and stuffed variety.
She's three! Hard to believe how fast time goes by. She's my girl and she's demands lots of my love. Growing, changing, and making us all laugh (and scream...not gonna lie), this little one is so precious.
Oh this baby. Easiest one, cheeriest one. Laid back, happy, sweet.
