Halloween Fun?

Yesterday my sister and I decided to get our families together, invite my dad over and have a little Halloween fun. Our focus was to get the kids involved in carving the pumpkins. A little ghoulish fun with a creative slant. So, we had my dad, our husbands, a 13 year-old boy, a 9.5 year-old girl, a 3.5 year-old girl and a nearly 2 year old boy. This sounds like a recipe for fun, doesn’t it?

But here is how it played out:

So much for fun for everyone! As we gutted and carved, look what the rest of the gang was up to:

Football, couch jumping and napping.
Well, thank goodness for my big girl:

And my sis:

Because together we were able to create these!

BOO! And Happy Halloween.
Who does the pumpkin carving at your house? Do you roast the pumpkin seeds? I do!
