So after all my hard work and searching - it POURED rain on Saturday and we were not able to go to the pumpkin patch because really who has time to go pumpkin pickin? So we stopped by the local farm and quickly picked up a few pumpkins before it started to pour rain again. Then we went and got costumes and went home to carve our pumpkins.
A few weeks ago I talked about carving pumpkins and how my kids come up with not so halloween designs. We've done original abstract designs, batman and superman symbols and my all time least favorite - spiderman's face - twice (don't even attempt it at home, not worth the trouble). I was almost dreading what they would come up with this year.
I shouldn't have dreaded anything. Tyler chose a sword, and then changed it to the two small knife swords (no I don't know what they are really called) - to go with his ninja costume. Nathaniel is also a ninja, but for the first time ever picked an actual Halloween theme and wanted a witch flying with a moon. Bradley didn't care and doesn't really get a say yet, so dear hubby asked for a traditional scary face to go with the long stalk on top of the pumpkin.
