So, yesterday after I picked up the kids and rushed them through homework, we decided to carve pumpkins. This means our entire dining room table gets covered in newspaper and I realize that the floors I cleaned earlier in the day…pointless. We go all out…the kids scoop out seeds, gross each other out and next thing I know, my clean floors are a thing of the past! But it sure is fun!!
Being a former first grade teacher, I had the kids sketch out their ideas on a piece of paper, then I transfered it to the pumpkin. So efficient.
We ended up going out to the pumpkin patch later on, so I let the kids wear their costumes. If you’re going to buy a costume, my opinion is, you might as well wear it as much as possible.
I hinted before at what the boys were going to be…and if you aren’t as old as I am, I might have to tell you…they are Ghostbusters. I love that the 80′s are back in style and I can relive my childhood over and over!
Oh and I should also mention that the boys’ personalities come through so well in their pictures. Jake is the subdued, nice ghostbuster and Cooper is the ghostbuster that actually scares ghosts!
And Jillian, well Jillian is just “herself” this year.
Anyone else going to be an 80′s throwback for Halloween this year? …strawberry shortcake, carebears…??
