Ever since I was a child, there is just something I LOVE about picking out, creating, and carving a pumpkin masterpiece for Halloween. When Jenna was the kids' age, I remember teaching her the magic of pumpkin carving:
My sweet Jenna at age 2! My does time fly.
Who do you think looks the most like her?
|Tanner dabs paint onto his pumpkin but truth be told, art is not his thing.|
|Tyler created a beautiful masterpiece and didn't want to stop!|
|Hannah was very methodical and took this activity very seriously.|
|Jenna was so sweet & encouraging to all the kids!|
|Ta-Da! Four one-of-a-kind pumpkins!|
|Ta-Da! Good pumpkin, Jenna :) Afterwards, she decided it needed a little paint, too.|
My friend and fellow quad-mom Amber actually just posted a blog yesterday about her crew decorating their pumpkins, and she also had them do stickers. This morning, inspired by that post, I thought what the heck- so we grabbed the dried & colorful pumpkins off the porch and decided to add just a tad more decorations to them: the kids had a BLAST!
|Tyler is showing me the glue on his finger- he is saying, "Icky."|
Ta-Da! Five completely decorated pumpkin masterpieces.
What types of things do you enjoy this time of year?
