Well, we have had our fair share of pumpkins this year!

I took the boys to Vandergriend's 2 weeks ago to pick out their pumpkins. We chose little ones to paint and big ones to carve.

This is the only good shot I got of all 3 before my batteries died...again!

They never die at home when I'm taking some unimportant picture - only when I'm out somewhere doing something good. Anyway, they had an inflatable pumpkin filled with balloons that flew around and an inflatable haunted house. I didn't want them to do the haunted house because,'s pretty obvious but they (Simon & Talon) wanted to go so bad, so I walked through it first and it was really just a maze with blacklights. They loved it. I had to literally push Ben into it. Once he was in, he had a blast! I had to drag them out of it. And Talon was a maniac in the pumpkin filled with balloons. I have some video of that. Maybe I can try to figure that out one day...

Here they are getting ready to paint their pumpkins.

I think Ben feels sorry for the battered and bruised pumpkins. Those are always the ones he leans towards. It's really kind of sweet. He picked Talon's and yes, it has marks all over it too. :)

Talon couldn't believe we were letting him do it. He laughed and smiled the whole time.

Simon created this masterpiece.

Once side is day...

and the other side is night.

Ben used every color paint we had. The stem was so mushy from all the paint! He was still sitting at the table painting long after everyone else was done. He enjoyed it so much.

And here's Talon's....

As if painting wasn't enough...we decided to carve some pumpkins this year too.

We sprayed them with this clear sealer stuff and it made them virtually squirrel proof. Not to mention rotten pumpkin proof. They still look perfect.

And as you can see...neither one of us wanted to carve Talon's pumpkin. It's just fine without a face. Talon didn't seem to mind a bit! :)

Trick or Treating post is next!

Very cute!
Your husband should have gotten out the power tools to carve Talon's - it took Brian about 2 minutes to carve his this year!
