goodbye october

How did it get to be November already? I just can’t believe how fast this year is flying by. Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner and before I know it my baby is going to be turning three. Sheesh. This growing up stuff is hard on a mama. I had to sneak in a little more October for you even though I am very aware that it has past. 🙂

We have never carved pumpkins at our house so this year was a first.

Levi calls it “scarving” pumpkins. He was really excited to scarve his pumpkin. 🙂

Our pumpkins came from my father-in-laws garden. I wish I had even a tenth of his gardening skills. Maybe someday. We planted pumpkins this year but we planted them a little too late. A lot of our pumpkins didn’t have a chance to turn orange before it frosted. Bummer. We did have tons of gourds though!

Griffin is getting so funny. He definitely knows what he wants now. And if he doesn’t get it he makes sure to let you know…in a very loud, dramatic way.

Levi is always bossing around telling Griffin something. He always has something to say. I’m pretty sure Griffin is only saying two words (moo AND mama!) because he doesn’t have a chance to get a word in. He just yells at his brother instead. 🙂

The boys had so much fun helping their daddy.

While Levi was scooping…

…Griffin was eating pumpkin. Nice.

Bammy and Papa stopped by while we were carving our pumpkins and helped the boys finish them up.

I don’t think Levi had ever really seen a jack o’ lantern all lit up. He was in awe. 🙂

There were little superheroes running around here on Halloween. I made some capes for a friends little boys and Levi liked them so much that I decided to make him one too. A superman shirt and and mask completed the costume.

Griffin couldn’t be left out. Last year a football player and football…this year superheroes.

One little superhero was crawling all around.

The other little superhero was flying all over the yard.

We had to get daddy a superman shirt too.

And just like that we said goodbye to October.

Happy November…and Friday too! Hope you all have a great weekend. Make sure to check back tonight for a weekend giveaway!
