Enough With the Pumpkins!

You can't post too many pumpkin pictures in October, can you? Well, if you can I'm on my way. Aidan is obsessed with pumpkins. He regularly sleeps with 3 of the little ones. I'm serious, the pumpkins get their own blankets. He forgot one when we went to Nana's and when he got home he apologized profusly to the pumpkin.

There goes pumpkin looking all weird again. Why does that happen? If you say or write any word over and over enough it starts to sound and look wrong. It kinda freaks me out...

Where was I? Oh yeah, pumpkins!

He carved on of the big ones last week. Let's clarify, I carved the pumpkin while he critiqued the entire time. He told me I was messing it up and if it didn't look good he wasn't going to let me put it outside for everyone to see. Am I the only one living with a mini version of Siskel & Ebert? The kid has an opinion about everything!

I think your pumpkin turned out great! If we would let him I think Caleb would sleep with his pumpkin, although maybe not since we carved him a scary spider!!

Even with the constance critique, it looks fantastic!

That pumpkin carving job is AMAZING. I tried to do it for my kid, well, I'll likely be posting a photo if for no other reason than to make a whole bunch of mothers feel good about their craft skills. Nice job

So does this mean he's no longer sleeping with the stick of firewood?

Sissy said...

No, Nana, the wood is in there too! I'm gonna get a picture of this madness one of these days.

So are the pumpkins and stick (which I need to hear this story!) also snuggled with Puppy and Baby? He's got one full bed!

Anyways, the jack-o-lantern turned out great. We're going to *attempt* ours tomorrow. They sucked last year, so I don't have high hopes.
