Carving pumpkins and Owen's fall carnival

We carved pumpkins a little late this year - with Matt working in the city and getting home so late every night, and our weekends totally filled with activities, we had difficulty finding time for pumpkins. We finally did it three days before Halloween, and the kids loved it. 

Owen showing Nora what the inside of a pumpkin looks like.

Nora doesn't like reaching her hand in there - we got a big pumpkin, and she had to reach in all the way up to her elbow to be able to get the guts. She didn't love that part. 

Owen pulled the stuff out for her, then let her touch it and put it in the bowl. Love that sweet boy. :)


A little candy break. 

Almost done!

The finished pumpkin!

Owen and Nora loved hanging out on the patio while the pumpkin was lit.

Since this is Owen's first year in school, this is our first experience with school fundraisers. They have had so many fundraisers in just the first two months of school... it's kind of ridiculous. We have participated in some (like the jog-a-thon), but totally ignored many of them - we just don't have that kind of cash! The fall carnival was pretty cheap, though, and they had lots of fun activities, so we went as a family.

Nora loved the petting zoo.

Seriously, look at her face! Owen was always scared of petting zoos when he was little - he'd cling to us the whole time, and wouldn't touch anything. This girly is fearless, though. She chased down each and every animal in there so she could give it a pat.

So excited to brush the llama!

Owen like the bunnies.

Cotton candy!

Matt made Nora dance for each bite. This girly loves dancing. :)

Here's a short video of Nora dancing for food... they played her favorite song "What Does the Fox Say". :)
