The boys decorating their pumpkins.

I was going to post these, but Erin got to them first. This weekend Ady was with her dad, so we let the boys decorate their pumpkins. It's Jadens first pumpkin. Erin thought a pumpkin with his handprint on it would be neat, Jaden wasn't having any of that, he wanted it to have his hand smear instead. I have a problem with messes and his hands were covered in paint, that was difficult for me.

We told Jonas he could decorate the pumpkin any way he wanted, here are the things that we have to put on it. He chose to make it a face. There's not a picture of it, but he did add some halloween stickers to the backside after making the face. The Elmer's glue wasn't quite strong enough, since then, the red eye has fallen off. Jonas had a good time and used one of just about everything that we had, paint, glitter, stickers, and gems.

We decided not to carve the pumpkins this year. Last year nobody wanted to gut them, which left me with 4 to gut. I'm not a big fan of that, so we didn't cut this year. Maybe in a few years we'll let the kids gut the pumpkins again.
