So off to the pumpkin patch we went.
It was HOT. Hence my kids' beat red Irish faces.
Kian was very afraid of the horses pulling the hay wagon. Even after seeing a statue of a horse in the pumpkin field, the poor kid dropped his pumpkin and went running frantically. Once I got him, he needed to be pulled in the wagon by his sister AND hold on to my hand at the same time. :)
And this is how the kids of an electrician decorate pumpkins. We've done this every year since Logan was old enough to decorate his own pumpkin.
They pick out all the pieces and the placements of them. We try to not get in the way of their designs, and its fun to watch what emerges. I love how Lissy's pumpkin is wearing earrings, and Logan's has hands. :) We also encourage them to use the tools by themselves as much as possible. Its neat to see how they grow in ability each year. This year Logan was using the wire cutters really well.
I love this funny little tradition.
