Grossed out by the insides!
Since she can't really carve, Madeleine painted some of her little pumpkins. Look at what a good job she did!
The finished product
Today was Madeleine's Fall Party at school. They painted pumpkins, iced and ate cookies and sang Fall songs. I was the parent helper and really enjoyed getting to be up there & see her with all her little friends. She's doing great at school and is really coming out of her shell. They brought the pumpkin patch to the kids & they got to pick out a pumpkin. And, of course, my girl chooses the only not round pumpkin out there! Oh well. She did pick it out herself. :)Harrison enjoyed watching all the fun from his stroller. All the kids were fascinated with him. Madeleine was telling everyone "this is MY brother Harrison and he's 10 months." So cute. She was so proud he was there. When they sang their "guess who came to school today" song, her teacher even included Harrison. Madeleine sang extra-loud during that verse. :)
After school, we came home and made a cake and iced some cookies (yes grandad we're bringing some to you). Here's our pumpkin cake we made for Halloween tomorrow. It took everything I had to keep Madeleine from it.
Tonight, we went to our church's "trunk or treat" and carnival. Madeleine got out of the car and stated, "Ok, I'm ready to ring the doorbell and yell 'trick or treat'." It wasn't exactly the same thing here, but she had fun going from car to car and getting candy -- and she got A LOT! Then we headed inside for some games. Here she is with her friend, Murphy.
Harrison was less than thrilled with his costume. He's a hershey kiss, in case you can't tell in this picture. And, check out those rolls!
My little cuties!
All in all, it's been a fun couple of days. I'm actually ready for Halloween to be over, so we can start counting the days till Thanksgiving. We're having our Texas family come up this year and Madeleine is getting sooooo excited about seeing and playing with her cousins. :)
