So, I cut off the tops, and let them go to it. Even Averie did her own pumpkin! Holy cow, I have babied them all these years. Those little suckers played me. They even separated the seeds from the pulp so that we could have some delicious roasted pumpkin seeds.
I wish I would have had a recorder going through all of this, because it was quite funny. Averie kept saying, "This is hopeless!" Where does she even get stuff like that. Ashton, I pretty sure was saying some words that he knew his mama didn't want him saying, but somehow he got away with it. And Ethan, just quietly went to work. It was a great night.
We ended up at my Bro and Sister-in-laws for dinner before trick-or-treating, and guess who was the only adult dressed up??? You got it. Seriously. What's with you grown-ups? You too good for acting like a kid? Well, you really missed out!
Here are some pics from our great adventures.

|Who am I you ask? Well, I have no idea. I just grabbed some stuff and put it on.|
