Carving Pumpkins

We carved pumpkins last night. After 6 years, Garrick FINALLY scooped out the goo... kind of. If we scraped it from the edges, he would then scoop it out with a spoon. His initial scooping conversation went like this;
G - It stinks!
M - Garrick, your fine, just scoop it out
G - It stinks! I'm going to puke!
Next thing we know he is forcefully retching, and vomits a tablespoon size amount. So one pic is him cleaning it up (don't worry, you can't see anything).
Garrick and Aleksia wanted to have their own "cutters" to carve their pumpkins, which they did, and Aleksia cut hers out all by herself! Granted we had to piece some of it back together so the nose and mouth weren't one big gaping hole. But she did it! Trestin was a good sport. He scooped, and dug, and even tolerated Mom putting some goo on his head! What a trooper! I didn't get a picture of the final pumpkins, but I will. So until then, enjoy our night of carving pumpkins!

How fun!!! Halloween just isn't the same without kids, I'm finding that out. Trestin is growing up so quick and cute! I've seen pictures of Gerrick as a baby a Trestin is looking so much like him!

THAT is HILARIOUS that Garrick threw up (poor guy though). I guess he won't take after his mom and be a nurse with his queasy tummy! HAHA! Cute pics. It's been too long since we have seen you!!

Did you hear we are moving to Seattle? Aaron got an awesome job offer at an accounting firm in Bellevue. He starts Dec. 1. I will stay in Spokane until our house sells...which might be a while. I haven't blogged about it because Aaron hasn't put his notice in at work here yet. Anyway, just thought you might like to know! TTYS
