Halloween Morning

Mommy was so lucky to get all of Halloween day off of work. After a nice family breakfast, we wanted to carve pumpkins. The girls, in their much loved skeleton jammies, waited patiently for Daddy to cut open their pumpkins,
Smiling with her pumpkin..... once it was opened, she took one look inside and there was NO way she was going to stick her hand in there and clean it out. She said, I will just draw on it.
Reece watched Daddy draw his face on his......
She stuck her finger in the pumpkin... then in her mouth..just once. I guess it was gross. After that she wanted to draw on it like her sister.
All the seeds out of all of our pumpkins. We clean them up, soak them, mix them with olive oil and seasonings and then roast them.
Daddy helped draw a face.
I think she got bored with it.....
Reece's pumpkins face.
In the end, we ended up painting the faces on the girls pumpkins. Cailey wanted hers to look like a witch. She put glitter hair on it.
Reece was very scared of Daddy's pumpkin and wouldn't go near it in the house at all. Later that night, when it was lit up outside, she loved it.

Getting out of this house

Mommy was dying to get the girls out of this house. First we were trapped by rain, then by high winds. While it was still windy at home, Mommy called Shannon and asked if they wanted to go with us up to Oak Glen for a quick trip, to run around. Shannon and Brooklyn came with us and it was nice to go with no crowds. The girls ran around, climbed all over an old pull cart, played with acorns, climbed all over pumpkins and watched some animals.
She was the only one who wasn't happy sitting with the pumpkins
Both little girls had to pick up little pumpkins. Brooklyn's was a little too heavy for her but she was determined to carry it.
