Carving pumpkins

On Sat. Matt & Mandy came over to carve pumpkins and frost cookies with us. It was a fun day, Zach and Elora especially had a good time. There were some really creative cookies too, but I forgot to take pics of them! So here are the pics of all the pumpkins!

Here is Miss Elora on the 60 lb pumpkin that Uncle Ben grew in our garden this year! It is huge and heavy!
Here is Miss Elora again with the pumpkin that she "carved" and painted!
Here is Zach with his pumpkin that I helped him carve and that he painted all by himself. It is pretty scary!
Here is our mess we made carving all the huge pumpkins from our garden. The big pumpkin on the table is the 60 lb one.
Here is the cute pumpkin that I "carved"!

Carved Pumpkins

Here are our carved pumpkins! There were even 2 pumpkins that didn't get carved or decorated! Almost all of them were from our garden.

I know what everyone is thinking! Aquabats!?

Anyway, the kids love this CD. Danika even dances to it!

So, I tried to take some "good" pics of Danika for her 1 year pics. She wasn't cooperating very well, so this is what I got. Every time she would smile she just had to wave her arms violently. So that is why I have ONE picture of her smiling (you will note her arms are blurry). She had a super-cute smile! But you all will just have to take my word on that! Maybe by her 18 month old pics she will have grown out of her happy arm swinging thing!! In the first pic she is eating a leaf, because she ALWAYS has to have something in her mouth! ALWAYS!

Danika's One!

Danika had her 1st B-day yesterday! She went right for the cards and didn't even look at the presents! And she didn't try to open the cards, she just carried them around.
Elora helped her open her presents though so, they all got opened one way or another. Her favorite was the balloon that Nana sent in the card that she was carrying around.

If you can't tell from the picture, she really is shoving cake up her nose. I'm not sure why, she doesn't normally do that with her food. Maybe it was all just so overwhelming that she forgot herself! Or maybe she was just being a one year old!
But, she did still seem to enjoy her cake!
