Once I moved out, hubby really had no interest in halloween - so I used to have my younger cousins come over and help me carve the pumpkins, then they would help me get all the treats ready and we would normally bake something special too. It was a lot of fun.
Once Mr. J was born, hubby started to get into the spirit of halloween - and now he goes all out (blow up lawn decorations and what not). Most years, he takes Mr. J to pick out our pumpkins, however this year it didn't happen and I wanted to get them carved.
This morning, I took the boys to Abby Hill Farms - about 20 minutes from our house. We walked around and checked out the pumpkins - the boys picked the ones we like and we paid for them and loaded them into the jeep. Then, we headed over to the petting farm they have set up and the boys got to watch and feed the goats/llamas/sheep etc.
After that, Julien had his first ever pony ride - he had a lot of fun. I knew Mr. K wouldn't hold on, but I tried to just sit him on a pony to take a picture - didn't happen, he was a little afraid.
When we came home Mr. K went down for his nap and Mr. J and I set to work scooping out the guts and carving....we only carved 2 (his and mine) Mr. K can "help" with his when he gets up and hubby's will be done tonight after he decides what he wants done.
