Lil' Punkinheads

Yesterday Devon and the kids had the day off for Columbus Day, so they decided to have some fall fun!
They went to the nursery and bought Mommy a big, beautiful mum, as well as some pumpkins...

Which they turned into these!


Are these not the cutest things ever? My Aunt Maureen and Uncle Jon sent these kits to the kids, which are Mr. Potato Head pieces for your pumpkins. The kids absolutely love them and they turned out so adorable!

Anything that keeps that icky, stringy pumpkin goo off my floors is also a big bonus!! Thanks Aunt Maureen and Uncle Jon!


Please excuse the ragamuffin-look of these children...they had just gotten up from a nap. I was trying to take pictures of the pumpkins, and they were all like "Please, Mommy, take our picture!"

And I said, "No way, you guys look like a wreck." (You think I'm kidding!)

But those darn preschoolers can be so persistent! So they got some more proud shots with their pumpkins. Sure do love those ragamuffin lil' punkinhead kids :-)

I love the Mr Potato Head Pumpkin decorations. We have one - a witch, guess I'd better do some searching and find it. I might just have to see if I can find the Princess one, as I know that Caty would love it. I hate the stringy gooey pumpkin guts too!

Are you kidding me?! My kids are raggamuffins almost everyday! Heck, so am I until I have to be seen in public! Haha! I love the Mr. Potato Head pumpkins! Super cute pictures of the kids with their cool pumkins! I might have to try one this year, although I still love getting the seeds out to roast!

Ok so I am laughing because that is totally something I would say to Preston. I love Seamus'Yankee shirt. Those are some really cool pumpkin decorations-did Devon get them right at the farm? That is a great idea because the mess of pumpkin guts is no more! The kids look great regardless of nap hair! I do have to say Preston is only into pictures nowadays if there is a toy in the picture with him or if he can make a ridiculous face.

Those pumpkins are great! I think the kids are cutest with their bed heads. How funny that they wanted to crash the picture!
