Friday we went to the pumpkin patch to pick out the children's pumpkins to carve. Usually we do this earlier and make a fun trip out of it. Somehow this year we ran out of time so instead of going to our usual pumpkin patch we went to one a little more local. It was a bit of a surprise when we rounded the corner to find this:

There were no more pumpkins left! At least none that weren't rotted and gross! Fortunately, they had some they had already picked and each child was able to find the "perfect" pumpkin.

The children's creations.

Bryce's creation. He used a stencil from Martha Stewart. I love it and will probably have to have one every Halloween from now on. Really, isn't it amazing?

Bryce and I both really enjoy going with the children trick or treating. But of course that means that no one is out our house to hand out candy. So for the children who come trick or treating I made a pumpkin to hold lollipops. Now all the children have to do is grab one (or two).


  1. What great pumpkins! Bryce is certainly the master carver!!!


  2. Oh, what wonderful carvings....and children's faces to match! I wondered what you did about not being home to pass out candy..... We gave lollipops too this year, but not so creatively. Looks like a Halloween to remember.

  3. First class atheletes have skied extensive trail sites with scenic views from [URL=]the north face outlet[/URL] resorts such as Sterling silver Star, Mount Washington, Callaghan Vly (near Whistler), Panorama and Kicking Horse.The right garments could make or break your nordic skiing trip. Below is a quick [URL=]north face outlet store[/URL] to cross country skiing attire.
