Pumpkin carving party

I'm sure you knew this post was coming, being the fact that we just visited the pumpkin patch last week! Next on the list, ofcourse, PUMPKIN CARVING! Gigi and Papa came over to help us make our pumpkins pretty. And honestly, they are the pro's at this pumpkin carving thing. J had never carved a pumpkin until he met me. Sad, but true! And me, I am not the best when it comes to getting "down and dirty" with the pumpkin guts! I think I may have passed my cleanliness on to the P, because he wasn't much for cleaning out the inside of the pumpkin either. Thank goodness this is Gigi's specialty. My specialty...making sure we all matched for our pumpkin carving party. Uncle Steve (J's BF from LA) sent P and I some IN-N-OUT gear, including the apron I am wearing in the picture. Side note: IN-N-OUT is J's FAVORITE burger place on the west coast. He makes me eat there everyday when we go visit (and that's not a joke). Anyway, I thought, what a perfect time to bust out the IN-N-OUT apron and t-shirts. It's hard to see in the pic, but J and P are both wearing their t-shirts! Papa was the best at carving the faces on the pumpkins so we let him be in charge of the knife. I always like to come up with something different, other than just scary faces, for my pumpkin, so this year I decided to use our initials as the eyes and nose. J was making fun of me because he thought my idea was "dumb"...until he saw the finished product...and he LOVED it! Our family pumpkin is the middle one...obviously. :)
Didn't they turn out good? We are officially ready for Halloween!!!

Cute! Thanks for the sweet comment, just for kicks, you'll have to check out an older posting calling all grandmas, leno, etc. of BabyBoy spitting out some fun words/sounds. It is amazing how they all develop, it gets to a point where they start picking things up like crazy, it's amazing to see how they all are good at different things :)
