Pumpkin carving







Brooklyn and I carved pumpkins this week, and it was a hit! Brooklyn really enjoyed playing in the pumpkin guts. And if I do say so myself, I have MAD SKILLS when it comes to pumpkin carving.!! But I'll spare you the envy and won't post any pictures of the finished pumpkins. Oh, and here's just a random cute picture of Troy in his PURPLE bumpo. Poor guy, all of his hand-me-downs from Brooklyn are girlie. Also, Brooklyn is NOT supposed to have her pacifier, but Erik (Daddy) thinks she needs to be spoiled. It's time to hide those. Anyway, the picture was taken before church. Actually it was during church. I went to YW's while Brooklyn finished her nap. Hence her hair not in pig-tails yet.

We had playgroup today as well, and all the kids wore their Halloween costumes or shirts. I wish I would have brought my camera, but here's a picture she sent me. My friend Mandy hosted and had such fun things for the kids! She read a story about a pumpkin, had the kids "pin the face on the pumpkin" and even had little treat cups for them! Brooklyn had a blast. Thanks again Mandy!

Hello! What a cute family you have. Congrats on your not so little one. How old is he now?

Cute pics. We carved pumpkins as well, but they rotted in about a week. Something about the humidty I think.

Woah, Marcie it looks like you've quite quickly taken off any baby weight and more. Are you training for a marathon or something? I saw your Facebook status a few days ago and you were doing some kind of fancy running training that I can't think of the name right now.

You're funny Rod. Thanks! I'm trying to get this dang baby weight off. It's been a lot tougher this time around. I'm not training yet, I'm working up to training just for a 1/2 marathon in the spring. But I think I'll attempt my first full in the summer. Oh and it's just interval training. A fancy name for running sprints basically. : )

I'm feeling like a bad mother now. You carved pumpkins with an infant and toodler. We didn't even get pumpkins this year. I love the little Bronco too. It was good to talk with you today, thanks. Can't wait to meet Troy at Thanksgiving.
