The kids were too impatient (awhile back, of course) to wait until closer to Halloween to carve their pumpkins (I didn't want them to rot), so instead we sat down one morning and painted away!
The kids had lots of fun and surprisingly didn't get too messy. Derrick had the biggest pumpkin, and his had the least amount of paint on it. go figure. Meg's was the smallest pumpkin, and it BY FAR had the most paint. That baby took forever and a day to dry. Carter's was painted with lots of different faces all around it. It's fun seeing each kid and their progression as they get older.
Later that night we decided to decorate sugar cookies. YUM. I didn't have a chance to buy those nifty little frosting decorating colors, so I had to make my own. I couldn't quite make black, but am pretty darn impressed with the gray that I mixed up. It's the simple things in life.
Yeah, I'm sure you've figured it out, but just in case, Derrick did NOT draw the leaves and vine on his. haha.
Lovin' the unibrow on Carter's.
I included this pic because I love that Carter has his tongue out while concentrating on his art. :)
Proof that they do love each other.
Love this pose. hahahaaa.
