We decided today was a nice day for carving pumpkins. We grew these {and several others....although not as many as last year} ourselves. Translated: 20+ pumpkins cost us about 10 cents.
I about choke when I see what pumpkin patches charge for one measly pumpkin. I think we're in the wrong business!!
Gutting the pumpkins was both girls' favorite part. Or not.
Lauren with her Jack-O-Lantern.
Isn't this the most attractive picture you've ever seen someone post of themselves on their blog? Whatever. I'm going to the gym later. Probably.

Emma and Paige.

Lauren's, Emma's, mine.
We're a creative bunch, no? :)
{In my defense, I don't have one of those fancy pumpkin carving knives so I had to make do with my Cutco paring knife. I'm just glad - and somewhat amazed - that I didn't lose a finger...or three.}

Soooo cute! I love the pumpkins! And you are a complete liar because you were NOT at the gym this afternoon. We missed you. :)

That IS a cute picture of you!! Oh and next year, I'm totally buying my pumpkins from you. So plant lots. ;)

Ok, I have so much to say. First, tell Lauren that her hair is so, so long! Pretty girl.

And tell Emma that I love her red boots. I think she and I have the same taste in footwear.

You're a good mom. I don't think my mom ever let us actually carve pumpkins. I'm sure she was worried we'd either make a mess or cut ourselves or cut each other or all of the above.

Seriously, you have the prettiest girls in the whole world. And I'm totally not biased or anything.

ummmm who went and let your girls grow so much since you last posted pics of them?! LOL!!

And I'm seriously planting pumpkins next year...because I'm beyond jealous of the ones you've grown the past 2 years!!!

I have to say, those are beautiful home-grown pumpkins! We did not have quite so much success. I think we spent at least $20 just watering the plants, and ended up with five small pumpkins that rotted before Halloween! LOL.
