Cut it Out!

Today was another indication of my little princess growing up way too fast. We have picked pumpkins out in the past, but never before has she carved them. Her Daddy spent all afternoon with her and they gutted and carved each of their pumpkins. Smiles and I, well we are lazy. I don't even know if we will get to ours...this year, we may just leave them whole.

First came the cutting off of the top of the pumpkin to make the lid. I am going to just "pretend" you are simple minded and you don't know the process here...
Next was our favorite of the day- gutting the pumpkin. She loved to scrape and scoop so much that she put it back in the pumpkin when she was done and then started all over again!Scooping out her pumpkin...
Putting some back in...
And this is Daddy's GIANT pumpkin that she couldn't reach the bottom of!

Then comes the next part...
Carving!And she got a turn at carving too!And the finished product is here.

On another note, Smiles had his own fun tonight. He decided that it would be fun to pass a little wind after his bath, only the wind was carrying some leaves with it...and the leaves had a pungent rotting smell. Oh Smiles, thank you for being Mommy's little stinker! I sure do love you and every minute of your boyishness (even if it's just by accident).

Do you think we could convince Ben to stay little and not keep growing up like his big sister? It's fun to watch, but it makes me sad too...

I'm glad that she finally got to cut her pumpkin though... since she started asking the second we got home from the pumpkin patch! :)

I think I'm the luckiest Grandma to have such adorable grandchildren...But I know I'm not the only one. These kids have a boatload of grands. We should book a criuse!
