Our Cat, Dog, Cowboy and Cowgirl...I won't mention (oh wait, it looks like I am) that I bought the youngest two costumes, but at the last minute they each decided to wear things out of our dress up bin. Grrrrr...that's $40 I could have spent on something else.
Of course there was pumpkin carving too!! I had the kids all come to the dinner table that night with facts about pumpkins and Halloween (some research and speaking skills).
|love this picture--she's so pretty!|
|Lucy wanted to cut something, so she cut out the nose|
The word pumpkin comes from a Greek word meaning 'large melon.'
Pumpkins originated in Central America.
The pumpkin is 90% water and is in the same family as cucumbers.
|Riley found a pattern online to make something fabulous|
After all the carving, we also counted our pumpkin seeds before roasting them. You didn't think I was going to let an opportunity to also have a math lesson go by, did you?
The end results of carving were quite pretty...
Riley's hard work paid off--look how awesome this is. Looks just like our beloved Ammo, big ears and and all.
