We had such a nice, fun weekend; in spite of the weather. On Saturday, we celebrated our anniversary(s) with our friends and went into the city to see "R*ck *f Ages"; which was amazing!

Then, on Sunday we had more friends over to carve our pumpkins ~ or as Mia would say "to celebrate the pumpkins birthday", hee, hee :) I kept telling her we were going to have our friends over to carve pumpkins, watch the football game and have snacks...she turned it into a "pumpkin party" and it just turned into a birthday party for the pumpkins...actually, it should be POOR pumpkins :)

The kids were so into picking a pattern and carving this year ~ with each year they get more independent and want to do it all "themselves". It's hard watching your child with a knife...but they did really well (the big ones) and we were so proud of the outcome!

Mia was SO happy to see her "Bran-non" again
she just adores him and lights up around him
(I think he kind of likes her too :)

7 kids, 7 pumpkins

Of course, we had to sing "happy b-day" to the pumpkin
The kids had fun blowing out the candle (over & over & over again :)
"Shhhhh", don't tell him it's a pumpkin cake!

"Happy Birthday Pumpkins!!"
