Painted Pumpkin.

I am totally not into carving pumpkins.  It's messy.  It requires lots of little tools that often break and it way too time consuming.  I just really don't enjoy anything about it.  Ans since the kids are too little to care, or help, I thought we'd paint them instead. :)  Sam loved the idea, because he LOVES to paint!

You'll have to excuse my lousy drawing...the exact reason I don't like carving.  I SUCK at drawing anything!

So I just took a razor blade and cut on the black marker...and the pumpkin "cried"...literally.  It had been outside and I think was plum full of moisture!

Then we peeled off all the tape, leaving the eyes, mouth and nose.  Which will be peeled off after the paint dries. 
Then Sam got to work painting!  We did one color at a time so it wouldn't blend to be all one ugly color.

Sorry, I;m lacking the finished product picture.  Sam had a blast though!  He is so excited to dress up as Luigi and go trick or treating!!

Pre-Halloween Walk.

The weather has been gorgeous latley. Like in the 50's and 60's. We thought we better take advantage of our evening walks while we still can! Tonight the boys INSITED on wearing their halloween costumes on our walk.

{notice Ethan's two front teeth missing??}

Yep.  People stared at us.  But it was fun.

Big Boy Toys!

It's quite best friend Breanne came to visit with her husband and we managed to get two {yes, I said two} pictures of her and I together...and they are on her camera!!  She took some AMAZING pictures of our family {but that's another post to come later}. 

While they were here, the weather couldn't have been any better!!  It was perfect "fall" weather!  We didn't do too much exciting things, I mean come on, we don't live by anything exciting really.  Breanne and I did manage to get some shopping done though!  It's so nice to have someone to go shopping with who will be totally honest with you and not just tell you what you want to hear! {Love her!!}

Breanne's husband {Shannon} brought his iPad along, and Ethan fell in Love for the first time since his Nintendo DS. {haha}  I'm sure he'd love to think he's getting one for Christmas....sorry kid...not this year!


If you follow me on Pinterest, then you'll notice I pinned this a little while ago.  Well, I tried it.  Except, the directions called for a Clementine, and well, I didn't bother reading them until after I came home with an Orange!

So we hallowed the thing out, and left the center for the wick.  We lit.....

and we lit......

we thought we got it!!

but it quickly burnt out.  We tried more olive oil...a little scared of singeing our eyebrows off...but luckily non of that happened.  Actually nothing happened.  Literally.  We were disappointed.  And used about 1/2 a box of matches.

So instead of the house smelling like delicious oranges, it smelled like sulfur.  Yum.

Mama's Helper.

This little guy loves to help his Mama.  Especially when it comes to cooking and taking pictures of products!  On windy days he will hold up my white board....he usually gets bored pretty quick though.  So I have to hustle!

He LOVES to wear sunglasses!  In fact he broke this pair...he's not so gentle on them...all thats left is the front piece, the two sides are totally ripped off!

Hurry and cook my dinner Mom!!  I'm hungry!!
