Last night we went over to my parents house for dinner, as we typically do on most Thursdays. My sister and her family and my Papa always come over too and the kids have the best time playing and driving us crazy!! ;-)
Every year, on a Thursday night around Halloween, my mom will have pumpkins to carve for the kids. Before we had kids, my sister, Jason, Jake and I would carve pumpkins of something we wanted, now we carve pumpkins of something the kids like. The kids are really too small to carve pumpkins still, so it's really more for us, but they love seeing the finished product so we continue to do it every year. :-)
Here's a year by year picture of our pumpkins since we've had Jackson.
Landon's was Incredible Hulk, Jackson's was Mickey Mouse and Mason's was the Owls.
In 2013 we painted pumpkins so the kids could be a little more involved.
Jake carved a really cool Ninja turtle for Jackson! Landon's was a Transformer and Mason's said Spooky (pictured above with the 3 boys).
