Our pumpkin



The other night, we finally decided to carve our pumpkin that we purchased from Jackson's Orchard last week. I secretly had no idea how this was going to turn out. Last time that I carved a pumpkin was many years ago, Charli Beth has never helped with one and hates all things yucky feeling and smelly {she gags about everything. At times I have no idea whose child she is?} and well you never know about Mark. ha! Jk!

Let me first tell you, they did a wonderful job.

Yes, I did help out a little! I drew the face on the pumpkin, but it wasn't the most perfect face.

I am still amazed at how much she loved pulling the seeds out! She loved throwing them and making a mess too. I also got her to take a bite of the pumpkin {Yes, I am a mean Mama!}

Love your pumpkins. It looks so fun. We didn't get to do any this year and I'm sad.

I love the front porch. It looks so festive for fall. I don't participate much in the carving, I am usually just a spectator and get to clean up the mess. Have a fun Halloween, hopefully work won't be to crazy!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
