We've only been in our new rental for two weeks and there are still boxes to unpack in every room except the kitchen but that wasn't going to stop us from enjoying this festive season. We picked up a few pumpkins and mums at deeply discounted prices the day before Halloween to get our front porch looking the part and then got to work on some pumpkin carving.
Ruby chose a white pumpkin and had me trace and help her cut out a black cat. She loved it so much she couldn't bear the thought of throwing the negative cut out cat shape away! Also, her pumpkin wasn't moldy, just a bit dirty from the lot.
Smith was taking it all in from his perch next to me. He's so much quieter now that he can sit up on his own and is usually content to stay in one spot for a bit as long as there's something near him to explore.
Soon after the photo above we had a major diaper issue that called for a complete outfit change. The kids kept working on cleaning out their pumpkins while I took care of things inside and then brought Smith back out to enjoy the beautiful weather.
Yeah, never mind.
