{Carving Pumpkins // Fall Bucketlist Update}

We are having the best October and I am so sad that it's almost over! Last night we checked another item off our Fall Bucketlist...

"We" {as in mostly Daddy} carved a pumpkin last night!! It was a great evening. The weather was cool and perfect, we had Pandora playing through the iPad/speaker and we just enjoyed our time together. 

Mason was so excited to carve the pumpkin....but the sweet little guy could not stomach the smell of the inside of the pumpkin. He was gagging! He said, "Daddy can do this part". haha! I mostly took pictures. And Gunner....well he ran around like a wild banshee playing with this soccer ball and anything else he could find.

We went with a pretty standard jack-o-lantern face because we didn't have any stencils to use!

  1. I love a good classic Jack o lanturn! We carved the # 1 into a pumpkin for Cora's Bday and I shaved into the skin to write out the word one. I had delusions of carving a bday cake with candles but instead we just wrote out her first year stats.

  2. We've been painting. I have one left. Maybe we should get on it. Looks like y'all had fun.

  3. You guys are so good at crossing stuff off your list!

  4. haha, love the last few pics. Who wants to be serious =)


Thanks for the comments! Hope you are having an amazing day!!
