I'm loving how these pictures turned out on these scrapbooking pages.
We have been lucky to have many nice days this fall like today was. Slowly we are working at raking all of the leaves in the front yard down to the road for the Holland fall pick up. Michael, Jon, and Becca like to help rake, so we purchased three child sized rakes this season.
While raking, Jon made an amazing discovery. A small birds nest had fallen out of one of the trees. We had so much fun looking at it.
We also used the nice weather to finally go ahead and carve out pumpkins. Michael chose a scary face
and Jon wanted a silly face. After posing with our pumpkins for pictures, we set about cutting off the tops. Grandma Haig helped Jon while Mommy and Becca worked on Michael’s pumpkin. Becca was truly fascinated by the whole process and didn’t seem to know what to make of it all although she was very curious. At first the boys were grossed out by the slimy insides, but they soon dug in and got to work scooping it out using their hands and the large spoons. Then we could carve out the faces, creating scary and silly pumpkins to display on the porch.
