Today is the first day all week that I haven't been completely exhausted by nap time. Sunday night I came down with a headache, which turned out to be the start of a lovely cold. H and B have been fighting it too, but much to my dismay they haven't been taking extra long naps to help them get over it.
Now that it finally seems like we're on the up swing, I thought it was time to get back to blogging and share some of our pumpkin adventures from this year. I shared our visit to Hilger's, here, but we've also been on a couple other outings involving pumpkins and fall fun. We visited Advanced Tree Technology for "you pick pumpkins," and Kuehnert Dairy Farm for their fall festival.
We let the kids pick out a pumpkin kit from Target which they were super excited about. Brooke picked the dog and Harrison picked the cat. We decorated them this week, and they just went out front yesterday. The pumpkin kits were fun, but we definitely needed extra paint and some double sided tape. Rob carved a basic jack-o-lantern and I decided to forgo any carving since we won't be home to light them on Halloween.
The above picture is about as good as posed pictures get with them these days. At least they're both looking at the camera, right? I still have a few final thing to do to finish up their costumes. I was planning to do it all earlier in the week, but naps became more important. So here we are, last minute, rushing around to get them done. They are dressing up as 90s cable access stars, and I have a matching costume too. We'll be sharing pictures tomorrow on my Instagram @jennpargeon. What is everyone else dressing up their kids as?
