We didn't actually do a pumpkin patch this year but got to take a few home from Lilly's field trip to the farm. Over the weekend we cleaned 'em out and carved some jack 'o lanterns. The girls had way too much fun digging into the pumpkins. Lilly was very reserved at first (it feels yucky!) but that didn't last long. Rosie thought it was funny to squish her hands around in the bowl of discarded guts and then shake said messy hands in the air. Things quickly got out of control. And they love their pumpkins. Lilly has told me several times that her pumpkin is so sad and lonely outside and that he needs to come inside with us. Nope. Sorry kid.
And mommy earned a glass of wine for not freaking out over the mess that was made. Huzzah.
