What does it say that I'm too tired to make dinner for my husband, but when a college student arrives having not eaten dinner, I merrily make my way to the kitchen to prepare something delicious? Tonight it was breakfast-for-dinner - we thought we'd introduce Aaron to fun of Dutch Babies.
He seemed to indicate that he enjoyed them every bit as much as we do.
On to pumpkin carving- Mikayla and I cranked ours out - we began our project before Aaron arrived when I still had very limited energy. She did her share of "sawing" out the design and it turned out just like we wanted it too.
John and Brayden opted for something much more elaborate. The pumpkin is still in process while I write - but there is spray paint and "suspension techniques" involved.......
We're not sure what Aaron's plan is - but he's pretty intense about getting it done.....
About a half hour ago, Travis and Steph arrived. Mikayla begged Travis to help her carve another. He said, "yes" - and the knife is indeed a prop in this picture. (btw - I tried to correct the red eyes, but they came out looking like snake-slit eyes....so I opted to stay with the original red - I guess it kind of works for the whole Halloween theme....)
Mikayla and I's pumpkin:
Mikayla and Travis' pumpkin (all her own design...reminds me of the head on "The Headless Horseman"):
