We went to a friends house this year to carve pumpkins and we had a blast. I love carving them the day of Halloween. If we carved them early they would go bad here in the desert. This time of year is one of my all time favorites. I just wish we had cooler weather to go along with the fall season. I look at this picture and it saddens me in some ways. I have 7 kids and only 5 are here carving pumpkins. I hate that my kids are growing up and yet I delight with each grown up step they make. My next post will be the Halloween dinner I did with my kids costumes....Thanks for bearing with me in playing catch up.
