Halloween has been a sore spot in discussions with Connor. He absolutely refuses to even talk about costumes. The other day Dave asked him what he was going to dress up as and Connor said "I said NO!" So Aunt Mary Ann got the boys these rock n roll shirts so we put those on. I got him a microphone and told him to say "Rock N Roll Baby" into it..which he gladly did to most people we saw while trick-or-treating at Dave's work. As you can see, Evan just wanted to check out the candy.
Then we went to the pumpkin patch. Evan had so much fun hugging all the pumpkins.
Then we cleaned them out with lots of help from the boys.
I looks like they are working together but really Evan is pulling Connor's hand out because he wants to do it himself. He got shipped off to bed right after this.
The finished product...the problem is in TX you can't carve your pumpkins too early....it's hot, they'll mold. So the pumpkins are sitting inside until tomorrow night when they need to do their job. Also a note for next year...don't get the bumpy pumpkins they are really tough and take power tools in order to carve!
