Today we went to the local college... they had a "Make a Difference Day". This is something they do every year. There are free books, balloon animals, face painting, make and take crafts, Clifford, therapy dogs for kids to read to, various entertainment (today was a Native American Story Teller) and food. We went last year and Blake had a blast. So we went again this year. Blake got to meet Reese Haller, an 11 year old author who published his first book Fred the Mouse at age 8. Blake also took a writer's workshop from Reese today and had a great time.
Then we came home and carved pumpkins. Oh we did some housecleaning before the carving too.
Blake carving his 1st pumpkin.
The final project.
Lilly's pumpkin. The sides and back have hearts that we each carved, too. That orange thingy at the bottom of the pumpkin is actually the light :)
Blake's 2nd pumpkin. He carved holes to make the horns stay in :)
My silly pumpkin. He had 2 teeth, but one fell out. Darn redneck!
Dolly... after thirteen shots of her walking away!
Next we are going to watch Meet the Robinsons, and eat Ben and Jerry's ice cream! YUMMY!!!
After that will be the bedtime routine of bath, meds, brushing teeth and story :)
Hope everyone had as good a Saturday as we have :)
