Karlie’s Pumpkin glowing after she finished carving it!
We had a fun family Halloween celebration the weekend before Halloween. Since Halloween came on a Monday night (also a school night) we decided to celebrate as a family over the weekend. Once again we gave the kids the option to dress up and go trick-r-treating or to stay home and have a family Halloween Celebration together. They choose again to stay home celebrate by carving pumpkins, playing games, and having fun together as a family.
Both girls picked, designed and/or created what they wanted on their pumpkins prior to carving. Karlie went with a more cute and traditional pumpkin face with a BOO underneath while Brina chose to do a Mare with her baby foal. They worked hard cleaning out and carving their pumpkins. The pumpkins turned out super cute too! Thankful for a time of celebration with my family. Hope you had a safe and Happy Halloween too!

Today we Flashback to October 2005 when the girls were eight months old and celebrating their first Halloween! They were good sports with the Halloween costumes. We really didn’t go “trick or treating” instead we just stopped by to say “hello” to some family in the area that evening. The kids had a lot of fun playing and hanging out a little bit with family.

So proud of their pumpkin!
Today’s Flashback Friday goes back 10 years when the girls went to their first pumpkin patch. They were so excited to check out the pumpkins. They didn’t like the feel of the prickly hay and grass on their feet, but were fascinated by the pumpkin and it’s stem.

It was like a cool new toy to Brina and Karlie
