Pumpkins and Halloween

Carving pumpkins is very serious stuff!!
This pumpkin is not carvable, he tried and when we realized it would be easier to carve it if we had a chain saw we looked it up on the internet and found out it is for pies and such. Such being pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin spice muffins, a pumpkin spice lattes. We have already made the first two things.

The boys got to draw their faces on their pumpkin with guidance, of course. Now they are waiting for their pumpkin to be carved

Our scarecrow family outside, one for each of us.

The Prince wanted slashes on his

Pinky's (The Princess) Pumpkin

The boys

The Princess was sleeping beauty with "New Hair", as she called it

One knight...
and then another. We let this monkey wear his new leg braces(AFO's) and we held his hands and he walked up to the houses (well stepped). It was so cute.
And then a few days later I made my first pie EVER! The crust was frozen but I used fresh pumpkin. It was so yummy.
