Carving Pumpkins

We had such a fun Halloween today. I just had to share a few pictures. We've been so busy, we hadn't had a chance to carve pumpkins and we were almost going to blow it off. But just before trick-or-treating, we decided to let Eli help daddy carve a pumpkin. And I'm glad we did because he loved it! He helped daddy take out the seeds and even carve it (with one of those safe pumpkins knives). Of course I followed him around like a camera Nazi. I think it was worth it for these cute shots.
































After carving pumpkins, we dressed both boys as giraffes and took them trick-or-treating around our neighborhood. There weren't many houses participating, but Eli didn't care. He had so much fun walking around calling "trigg-a TREAT!" He would say it over and over again until the we got to the doors, where he would become shy and barely whisper. But as we walked away, he would say "more house" and want to do it all over again.

Amber, This is probably a random place to ask, but my mom and dad want to give Jackson 2-year portraits for his b-day and we were wondering if you had any openings that you would be willing to do them? Let me know if that is possible. We would love it. Hope all is well--love the pumpkin pics! :)

I love love love these. Elijah is a doll! The "pumpkin head" one at the end is a keeper.
I would also love to see some in the giraffe outfits. We took Jasper to a birthday party last week that had a circus theme and he was an elephant. Too funny! xx Viviene
