Yesterday was an exhausting day for me. I sat at the kitchen table for hours carving pumpkins. Seriously...cutting, tracing, scraping, drawing, cutting some more. My arm is killing me!
Okay, I can't lie to you sweet people any longer. I was in no part involved in the carving process, just the picking out cute faces to trace part. The man behind all the action was this guy...
Poor Matt had to clean out and carve 4 huge pumpkins all by himself. I would have helped but you know someone had to keep the littlest one entertain, so unfortunately I just wasn't able to get my hands dirty. Darn.
So he did get a little bit of help. Oh wait, is that Braden? What is he doing there, he is suppose to be keeping me busy so I didn't have to get my hands all full of pumpkin guts. Wooopsie. :)
Alexa helped out a tad too. Here she is "touching" the pumpkin. HA! I swear I am really not trying to turn her into a girly girl....I did ask her if she wanted me to touch first and she said she still wouldn't do it. So there ya go, not my fault. :)
Quick, get a picture....SHE TOUCHED IT!!
But mostly she sat and kept Daddy entertained while hard at work, which I think he really enjoyed! And, yes, those are wings she is wearing. Doesn't everyone wear their butterfly wings (upside down I might add) while carving pumpkins? No? Well don't tell her that, she would be devastated! :)
While not taking pictures I sat and drank my hot cocoa...since there was SNOW outside!! Crazy!
With extra marshmallows, of course.
And I thought, "hey, do you think the kids might like marshmallows?"
Do I even need to go there for ya'll? Needless to say, they were a hit.
There you have it. You are going to have to wait to see the outcome of the day though! Not because I think it's funny to leave you in such suspense (HA), but just because I didn't really get very good pictures of them and there is already way too many pictures in this post anyway, don't you think? :)
P.S. Do you keep the seeds and bake them? I asked Matt if we should keep them since there was probably about 9 million of them or something like that, but he said he tried them one time and they were gross. I don't think I have ever tried a pumpkin seed. Do you put anything on them? Salt? I don't know...
