You know I had to do it, Alex really wishes that I hadn't. I couldn't help it. Is it wrong that I think this is funny?
We carved our big,huge pumpkin today. Ben wanted a smiley face pumpkin. He designed (or more accurately directed me as I drew it out) the face. He was very specific....he wanted triangle eyes, a traingle nose, and a smiley face with 2 teeth. I managed to squeeze in a 3rd tooth for his approval. He also quickly corrected me when I inverted the triangle nose. I believe his exacts words were "you're doing it wrong". The boy knows what he wants.
Here's a few snapshots...
The finished product
I also did some work on Ben's costume. He has wanted to be a robot since the beginning of summer. I used a box, some trinkets found at the thrift store, Tim's work shop, and my scrapbooking supplies. I have to admit, it is coming out pretty darned cute...if robots are allowed to be cute that is. I've really enjoyed handmaking his costumes the past couple of years. I hope to keep up the tradition in future years.
Here's a sneak peek, you'll have to wait until after Halloween to see the finished product ;)
We finished the evening off with my favorite holiday cartoon of all time, It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. Perfect.
