carving pumpkins... you either love it or you hate it. i love it because james is a good sport about it, we can do it outside so the mess stays minimal, and my girls love it! plus, who doesn't love having glowing jack-o-lanterns on their porch for halloween night?!
brooklyn got right to carving her pumpkin, slaughtering it really, but james helped her turn it into her vision and she was thrilled with it!
kendall shocked us all and actually loved digging the guts out of the pumpkin. she did that for about ten minutes. she then wanted to help dig out my pumpkin.
adalyn was good for most of it, but then when i was trying to carve my pumpkin, she insisted on being held, so i carved mine one handed. i'm sure that won't be the last time!
it was a beautiful night with just a little hint of chill in the air and i really wished this night wouldn't have ended. we danced, ran around the yard, and finished up our pumpkins all too quickly.
these kind of traditions with my little family warm my heart and literally leave me bursting with joy.
