Pumpkin Carving Party and BOO-ed

I've been Boo-ed by Mrs. B And now it's my turn to do the Boo-ing! If you're here because you've been boo-ed, just follow the directions below.

(Just one thing...I don't know how to upload the image....HELP!)

The Blogging Boo works like this... Go to as many friends as you want and tell them they've been "Boo-ed". Have them link back to your blog to pick up their Halloween Treat (the cute picture) and tell them to "Boo" their friends. Then, put the picture in your side bar so everyone knows that you've already been "Boo-ed" and to send the pic to someone else. Ready, set, BOO!



It's that time of year again...time to carve a pumpkin. We ordered pizza, had Mima and Pepa down, and got to business (by the way, the pizza was amazing it was Papa John's Tuscan Italian Pizza....YUMMY!). Jack was not too interested in touching the gooey parts but he liked watching Mommy and Pepa dig it out while he ate his M&Ms. He also loved when Pepa talked into the hollow pumpkin and he kept wanting to talk into it too. Sammers sat in his high chair smiling all the while and enjoyed beating on the pumpkin and listening to Pepa's funny noises. Pepa carved a "nice" pumpkin by encouragement from Mima. He even included just one tooth to look like little Sam. We then roasted the pumpkin seeds and took our little Jack-o-Lantern outside. I love this tradition and it was really neat for my little ones to be carving their pumpkin at the same table I carved pumpkins at when I was a child. We just wish Daddy could have been here. Mima put Sam down and Jack played a little longer and then went down easily. Everyone is asleep and our sweet Jack-o-Lantern is outside all aglow. Happy Halloween!

I love the photos with the kids peering into the pumpkin, like "What IS that in there?" So cute! And seeing the photo of your son made me excited to have a baby in the house again, in just a few months! :)

We didn't carve pumpkins this year for the first time, so it's fun to watch everyone else do it. What sweet pictures! :)

So cute! Great photos! That's one thing we didn't do this year- carve pumpkins! I feel like it's too late. Halloweens tomorrow! I think tomorrow we're going to bake pumpkin bread for friends and family and make pumpkin salt dough ornaments!
