Saturday, my mom and sister, Beth, came down for the day to help out with some Fall festivities. We had movies playing in the background, we baked and decorated pumpkin sugar cookies, and we also helped Jonah carve his first pumpkin!
He was all about the baking of cookies. In fact, I think he liked icing them even a little bit more :) Let's just not dwell on the fact that he was trying to down the icing by the spoonful. Stinker!
After the cookies were all baked and frosted, we carved Jonah's first pumpkin. He absolutely hated it. Hah! We opened it up and he thought it was the grossest thing he had ever seen. After encouraging him to reach his hand inside to scoop out some seeds, he said, "Ewww!" over and over again, and downright refused to touch any part of the pumpkin. Eventually, he did come around and starting flinging the pumpkin guts around the kitchen (with a spoon of course) and even helped make a face in his pumpkin. Here's a picture of the final result :)
This afternoon, we took Jonah and Olivia to a Pumpkin Patch not too far from our house. It was a lot of fun and the kids had a great time! It was especially nice to have Kevin home since Jonah hasn't really seen him since Thursday evening :)
As I'm sure you can tell from the photos, we had a wonderful time! What did you do this weekend?
