Got Pumpkins?

I cannot believe tomorrow is Halloween.  Ashton has always loved to carve pumpkins and I usually drag my feet when it comes to buying the pumpkins.  Not because I don't want to, but it is always so hot in Oklahoma that if you buy them and carve them too soon, they rot.  And that is just gross.

Last year I waited too long and we could not find any pumpkins...she was so darn mad at me.  Well, the same exact thing almost happened this year.  I waited...said no, let's wait...and waited some more.  So, yesterday I asked Tony to run to Wal-Mart and get a few pumpkins.  As soon as my cell phone rang, I had a dreadful feeling.  I knew what he was gonna say before he said it.  NO PUMPKINS!  So, I sent him to a second place.  Nope...still NO PUMPKINS!

I knew there was no way I could come home without a pumpkin...so I left work early and headed to the couple of places I thought might still have a couple of pumpkins.  The first place has ONE!  Yep...I bought it even though it was crazy overpriced and not really the best shaped pumpkins.  The second place still had a slew of them, so I grabbed two more (over priced) pumpkins.

Now, pumpkin carving is not my thing.  So you will never see me in the pictures.  I hate the goop, the yuk, the smell...I hate it all.  But I love that my kids and hubby enjoy it. 
I guess I can be a super mom for one more Halloween!!!

I LOVE carving pumpkins!! In fact, I haven't decided if I'm going to carve mine tonight or tomorrow because they do rot pretty quickly after you cut into them. I'd fit right in with your fam! ;)

How fun are you?! Looks like a fun family time, even with older kids! I don't either and for now my kids are happy painting them.
