Last Night was the night. We cranked up the Halloween Music and grabbed our bowls and tools and went to work.
Kate wasn't so sure about the whole cleaning-out-the-pumpkin-thing. It kind of grossed her out. We told her she had to at least get some slime on her hands or she couldn't own her pumpkin. She relented.Jake loved every second of it. He couldn't get enough of poking his pumpkin will all sorts of things...tools, crayons, markers, mini saws...I guess it's true. You don't document your growth as much the more pregnancies you have. Maybe because it's so shocking at how fast your belly pops out! I like to think my body is just extra smart the 3rd time around and it knows just what to do to provide a comfy place for this little guy ;) Yes...I officially have 2 months left, but apparently this one is measuring large, so I'm not surprised if he comes early.They turned out great! Thanks, Joe, for dedicating your pumpking to me :)
So, if you don't know already, one of my favorite things is chocolate covered caramel apples. I LOVE everything about them. I decided a couple of years ago, that I'd make a tradition this time of year of making my own. Why not??? I have my own special concoction that is divine and this time around, the apples at the store were deliciously huge! So they turned out even better and more to go around for everyone! After getting the pumpkins out on the porch and cleaning up our seeds, the kids asked, "So...Can we have a little treat?" Actually, yes! I had the perfect thing.
I heard Kate mention to Joe as he was getting the kids in the bath..."That was the best night ever." I'd say it was pretty high on my list :)
