On Monday's Pumpkins, Guts & Gloves, I promised a few more pictures, so I'm back with a handful.
This cow kept moo'ing at me every time I walked up to her (?him? I didn't check! lol) and just cracked me up. There were chickens, roosters, pigs, piglets, cows, ponies, oh my! And we had a blast visiting with them on our trip to the pumpkin patch!
And on Sunday, it was time to get busy carving those pumpkins we brought home with us.
After seeing the kids drawing complicated faces with a million cuts (too many for their small hands), Dad drew a sample face on a piece of paper for them.
And then proceeded to use his sample for his own pumpkin.
My boy used the sample for the mouth on his, adjusting the teeth. Apparently, pointy is scarier than square.
This was the first Halloween that he wanted a 'scary or horror' costume rather than a superhero. Though he ended up being a cool alien, he greeted every door he trick or treated at saying, "Braaaiiinnnsss" and looked a bit more like a scary zombie alien rather than the little green man it started out as. He loved it.
And my girl's sweet pumpkin. She had me making the turns at each corner, while she cut the straight lines of the eyes and nose, but by the time she reached the mouth, she was a Jack-o-lantern cutting pro and doing it on her own!
(Clearly I need to learn to shoot better in low light, but I'll get there!)
I went with Linus and the Great Pumpkin this year. A little simpler than years past, but when I saw the image on Creative Type Dad's pumpkin stencils, I was blind to all others.
We had a fun Halloween! How was yours? What does November hold for you?
Me? I'm participating in NaNoWriMo this year and though only on to the second day, loving the writing and community surrounding the word frenzy!
Linking up with some rockin' awesome Wordful/ish Wednesday peeps!
