pumpkins and a spooky meal

It was Halloween day when Eric took the kids outside to carve pumpkins. I’m always so glad he leads this tradition.

Kyler, Layla, Brinna, and Perry all carved out perfectly simple or spooky jack-o-lanterns.

Kacin preferred only to take the top off of his pumpkin, scoop his seeds for roasting, and dream of smashing the orange thing in some destructive fashion.

On Halloween day, we went to Jacqui's house and served all the kids a Halloween themed mixed up meal. We served three items in each of three courses. My mom used to prepare mixed up meals for us so I loved another chance to carry on the tradition. I've done it with my kids before, but this was the first one for Jacqui's kids.
