We managed to fit in our annual pumpkin carving tradition, just days before Halloween. Our friend Kari and her dog, Henna, came over and lent a hand. Isaac had his own adventure, chasing a balloon, as we were carving the pumpkins. Both girls designed their own Jack-O-Lanterns. Audrey explained that hers is a "crazy alien" while Kate went with a more traditional face. As with our previous years, the kids were happy and excited with the final product, which is what really counts.
