Pumpkins and cookies

 We told the kids that cleaning out the pumpkin guts was all up to them this year. They weren't quite sure what to think but they were up for it! Cade checking out the work ahead...
 Getting started...
 I have about a hundred of his little "grossed out" face. He was trying to be nonchalant about it, but at one point, he almost started gagging! haha! We were cracking up!
 Ella was not much better, but she was MUCH more vocal- "This is disgusting!" and "This is the grossest thing I have ever touched!" haha!
 Finally the pumpkins were clean and we could get on to the fun stuff- drawing faces for Daddy to cut out.
 Before photo
 After photo. She was so proud!
 Then Cade got to draw his face on (under Ella's supervision, of course!)-
 And Cade's after photo. Daddy had to improvise a bit!
 Lighting them up. So fun!
 Ella and I made pumpkin cookies after school one day this week. She has a thing for sprinkles!
 Taste-testing. The verdict- YUM!!
