We were so excited to go to Pumpkin Junction this year and get our pumpkins. The boys and PJ Mama did a great job. You can check them out on Facebook at Pumpkin Junction. Sadly, I left the pumpkins on the deck and they froze too many times. We ran to the grocery store and no pumpkins. Jodi to the rescue!!! Jodi had also gone to Pumpkin Junction and offered us her pumpkins. So, we had one large and one small. I had ordered a harvest pack from Bountiful Baskets so we pulled two baking pumpkins out of there and then we had 4. Just right!
Olivia started the day and project in a summer dress but ended up getting pumpkin in her eye and had to have a bath mid-project.
Apparently Emma’s pumpkin does not smell as good as Amanda’s. Amanda was carving a pumpkin called an Atlantic Giant. It smelled like a cross between a melon and a cucumber. She wouldn’t pull her head out of the darn thing. She even made Mike and Jodi come from across the street to sniff it.
Here we are with our finished projects. I even added the cute Jack-0-lantern that my friend, Lori Sola, gave me. It is from PartyLite. If you want a link to her site, let me know and I will post it.
Emma was Cat Woman. She didn’t wear the actual costume for 2 reasons… 1) she didn’t want to and 2) we couldn’t find it. Later, I realized I had put it with my sewing machine because it needed to be fixed. She was more comfortable and happier in her own cat suit.
Not Halloween, but wanted to put my boy in the blog post too. Trevor came home to cheer on the Bulldog Cross Country runners at the State Cross Country meet. As you can see, the runners had a bit of weather to deal with that day.
And here they “glow”.
My girls… love them so much!
Olivia had two costumes. She was Violet from The Incredibles for her Girl Scout party and a witch for the real thing.
And our little puppy. She picked this out herself but it was too small so I ended up cutting the legs apart and sewing it into a sort of skirt type thing. It worked. She was the cutest puppy I had seen.
As Thanksgiving week approaches, I am grateful for so many things, but wanted to say a special thanks to my blog readers. I enjoy writing and sharing and it is fun to know that there are people out there waiting for the next post. Don’t hold your breath though… that could get dangerous.
