This afternoon we carved pumpkins with the girls. They gutted them and picked out the faces and James did the carving. Lydia drew a face on a little one and cut off the top and carved it with no help. She was really happy to be old enough to do it all by herself. The pumpkin carving tools are much safer than knives. Thanks for bringing them this morning Carl and Mary!
Anjelia did her own pumpkin decorating! The messier the happier!
Saturday we spent the afternoon in the country at Mom and Larry’s. Tom and Karen met us out there and we had a fun, very relaxing, long hayride! The weather was perfect and the countryside was beautiful. I can’t wait ’till next year! It’s a yearly highlight.
“Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” George Eliot
