This post was supposed to go up last week, before we left for Indy, but the night I had planned on writing it I was busy packing and picking up the house for our trip. I thought I'd be able to jump online and finish it up while we were on the road but that just never happened because when I did have the time I was too busy soaking up all the TLC I possibly could. Related: it's probably a good thing we don't have cable.
The night before Halloween we went to Papa & Busha's for a little celebration which included homemade pizza, caramel apples, and pumpkin carving.
We had planned on carving three pumpkins that evening but as we turned the corner on our way there we heard a clunk and we instantly knew one was a goner. So these were the two we had left. Hutton's on the left and Keaton's on the right. Actually, the one on the left is the one Keaton picked out at the pumpkin patch but because it was the smaller of the two we decided to make it Hutton's.
Keaton wasn't quite sure what to make of this pumpkin carving business...
We were able to get him to reach in and touch the inside...
but I'm not quite sure he liked the sliminess.
He preferred to watch Collin do the cleaning.
But we did get a smile when he and Daddy pretended to eat the gunk.
As Collin was cutting out the face Keaton kept touching his ears and asking huh? huh?
So Collin pleased him by including ears on his pumpkin.
While we turned our attention to caramel apples Collin dug out Hutt's pumpkin.
Our jack-o-lanterns are still sitting outside.
Keaton's has one tooth because he is 1-year old.
And Hutton's has none; just a big gummy smile.
And some of my other favorite pictures from the evening...
Papa & Busha gave Keaton a train whistle in his Halloween goodie bag. This whistle is so awesome, it's handmade and really sounds just like a train. It was perfect for his costume!
