Mr. Pumpkin! Well, Hello!
You're back again this year.
I see your eyes, I see your nose.
You're grinning ear to ear.
Inside we'll put a candle stick
To make a lantern light.
Then set you on the old front porch,
And let you shine all night!
This is the little poem, Rainee had to memorize this week... she did EXCELLENT!!! I thought it went wonderfully with pictures of the pumpkin carving we did last Friday. Rainee a friend over to carve pumpkins... they did a great job and had the best time!!! But unfortunately we kept forgetting to put a candle inside him for his photo shoot... so when we finally remembered... he had wilted... it was very sad!!! But no worries... Rainee's decided we'll carve our pumpkins from the pumpkin patch... and this time we'll put a candle in him right away for their photo shoot!!! It was just so sad... I don't remember our pumpkins ever wilting so quickly before... maybe it's because he was such a little guy.... I don't know... it was just weird... but at least I have the carving photos.... right????
I also wanted to share with you the Halloween cookies we made this week. Every year we either make cookies or cupcakes.... Rainee wanted cookies. Here are our a few of our creations... aren't her pumpkins the cutest??? .... and that skeleton.... he's adorable! For our little mummies, I used a gingerbread man cookie cutter and smashed marshmallows, then cut them into strips... I planned my mummy strips... and Rainee, she just went for it... I like hers best... he's a seriously sweet!!!
Today I'm processing our pumpkin patch photos, so I can share them with you... we had a great time... I can't wait to do some scrapping with them!!!
