some pumpkin fun...part two (actually about pumpkins)

So we carved a pumpkin (and by "we", Matthew did all of the actual work).

Such determination...


Thankfully he has little helpers who are eager to assist!

His littlest helper doesn't look too sure...
Nope, she does NOT want to assist!
But she'll gladly watch.
Only one of them is actually WORKING.
This finished pumpkin and the mess...they played quietly and didn't fight the entire time the pumpkin was being carved so I didn't care about the mess.
Pumpkin fun with actual pumpkins...round two.
We let the girls paint pumpkins the other night and it was a big hit. Made a mess but resulted in quiet time for mommy and daddy. Totally worth the clean up!
We realized that this was the first time for Elyn to paint. She started out by using her fingers as the brush, so we taught her how to use the brush...we're awesome parents.
Nora though, was an old pro.
She is loving it! (And, by the way, SHE insists that we buckle her in each and everytime she sits in her girl.)
Look how proud they are!
Her nose itched a little while she was painting...can you tell?
She is attempting to wash her hands here. The paper towel was blue by the time she was done.
And the finished products!

Some pumpkin fun...part one

I mentioned that we had gone to the Right Choice Corn Maze last weekend. We had a great time and here are the pictures to prove that:

We went with our friends, The are the girls, Elyn, Gibson and Nora.

We ate a picnic lunch first and then the girls headed into the hay tunnel.

Then, they listened to each other through some pipes.

And did a little hay jumping

Then, we let the girls take a ride on the cow train.

After the cow train, we took a ride on a wagon pulled by a horse, riding comfortably in old car chairs.

This picture is a bit of a miracle, Nora touching a huge animal.

And then we shoved the girls down slides. When Elyn got to the end she cried.

Nora wanted to do it again.

So, we let her.

After the family picture, the girls pumped the water pump to shoot rubber duckies to the end.

And last, we fired the corn cannons.

The Right Choice Corn Maze was so much fun!
