Carving Pumpkins

We decided the kids are old enough now to do some pumpkin carving. Hayden chose the monster and Coy chose the spider. They had fun helping us along the smooth long lines and digging out the guts.
They are so proud of the finished result. It was a fun little activity that I think will become a great Halloween tradition.
Travis makes me laugh all the time but he rarely will do something goofy infront of the camera so I had to share this unique moment.
Coy poked some random holes in the spider while Travis was carving.

They were both intrigued with the whole process. It will be fun to see how much more they are able to actually help next year. When all the kids get older maybe well have a collection of five beautifully carved pumpkins every year, one from each of us.

I decided I need to start commenting on people's blogs. I love to read comments!! :) Anyway, it's so good to see you're little family! I really can't believe how big your boys are!! When I knew you in UT you were just pregnant! If I'd only known. :) I had no idea what I was in for!! Being a mother is great!!! Anyway, you're considered UT friends because that's where I met you. If you're strongly opposed I'll change it. :) Anyway, fun to see your pics!

okay, i was just noticing your kitchen. is this your house? it looks huge?! In answer to your questions: No, I don't do hair anymore, california requires more hours and it wasn't worth the headache, to me. BUt i am still renewing my UT license. I went on a mission to Scotland after meeting Ryan and when I got back, we got married 8 months later and moved the next day to southern Cali. That's all the big news since I last saw you. What brought you back to Maine? if you want, you can email me at
