Pumpkins... pumpkins... pumpkins

Salt is rather excited to draw on his pumpkin with a magic marker... the design..."Happy Pumpkin"
This evening I decided that for FHE we would carve our pumpkins that Aunt Amanda brought us.  I couldn't just have these three beautiful pumpkins sit on out living room floor until they rotted.  So we went to work. 

I asked the boys to each draw what they wanted the face to look like on their pumpkins... now I must say that this is the first time that I have ever carved pumpkins with the boys!  Why I have no idea.  But I decided it would be fun tonight.  Maybe because the boys are a little older.

It was so funny, both of them just scribbled all over the pretty side of their pumpkins and left the ugly side for me to carve.  But Salt knew for certain that his pumpkin had to be a Happy Pumpkin.  Pepper wanted a mean pumpkin... both turned out rather happy.  But Pepper's pumpkin had "Mater Teeth". 
 Pepper is done with his drawing...  I was not allowed to cut the top to gut out the pumpkin...
 Peppers finished pumpkin... Pepper was very angry when I asked him to smile with his pumpkin.
 Salt about to "taste" his pumpkin
 He said it was delisous!  (not a typo.. that is what he said.)
 Salt LOVES his pumpkin
 At least one will smile
Oh... there it is... a smile... notice the lump on his forehead... yeah that is where Salt hit him with the dashboard hula man.... brotherly love at its best!  And man... did he ever sound like he was going to die.  I think he was tired.

I am so excited to take them Trick or Treating!  I think they will SO love it this year!  Life is just so much fun with these darling little rascals!

Oh and by the way... for some random reason... our family favorite color is ORANGE.  That will probably change in the near future, but I seem to dress the boys and myself in a lot of orange lately.  Maybe the season or something!  Whatever it is, its a color that makes me happy!
