Pumpkin Carving

(Halloween Stew) ok, it was just chicken noodle soup in those cups, but I told the kids it was Halloween stewwwwwww oooooooo! (hey they thought it was cool)

daddy hard at work (lots of pumpkins to carve)

Farrah loves her pumpkin

look at Finley smile:)

Then we ate pumpkin seeds...
I thought this poem was cute and my kids thought it was funny.
One day I found two pumpkin seeds.
I planted one and pulled the weeds.
It sprouted roots and a big, long vine.
A pumpkin grew; I called it mine.
The pumpkin was quite round and fat.
(I really am quite proud of that.)
But there is something I'll admit
That has me worried just a bit.
I ate the other seed, you see.
Now will it grow inside of me?

(I'm so relieved since I have found
That pumpkins only grow in the ground!)

When I was little my dad use to tell me that if I ate watermelon seeds, watermelon would grow out my ears...and I believed him.
