Pumpkin Carving 2008

This year Sam could really understand and appreciate the awesomeness of pulling out all of the guts from the pumpkin. He wasn't too sure about the texture of the slimy guts at first. He would tell me, "Mommy? Spoon please, spoon please!" It didn't take too long of watching Daddy and Mommy pulling out the guts with their hands that he decided he would dig in and get busy.

Here is father and son working together to get the job done right. Rock on boys!

Uh Oh here comes Isaac to see what is going on up there on the table

Mommy I'm not sure about this gunk. YUCK!

Stay tuned this weekend for some incredibly cute Halloween costumes!

Timeless Classic

There is nothing cuter than when Grandpa L. does the good ole boy hair flip.

And as you can see here, our first go at markers went exactly as I expected....messy and funny!

And Isaac was exhausted after watching the Jayhawks fall in football last weekend. :-(

Bath time is so much more fun when you have someone to play with

Shaake's 2008

Picking out the perfect pumpkin is just one of the best parts of doing the annual visit to Shaake's Pumpkin Patch. I personally have had many memories as a child going to Shaake's with my parents when I was younger, and now it is such an out of body experience taking my children there. I watch to see Samuel excited to go down the hay slide or to ride the tractor out into the fields of pumpkins and can't believe that I too was probably excited about the same things when I was their age. I'm sure if my parents were there with us they would have had that odd feeling of old memories flooding back to them while they watch their grandkids do the same things myself and my brothers used to do. The hunt was on!

Mom I found the perfect pumpkin!

Waiting for the tractor.

Daddy went up ahead with Isaac and the rest of the pumpkins in the stroller so that Sam and I could ride the tractor back. Every time a tractor went by us as we were on the hunt Sam would yell, "Tractor Sam, tractor Sam!"

Hmmmm....what is this anyway?

How Tall This Fall?

Another great end to the holiday pumpkin picking season!
