Dinner in a Pumpkin

Last weekend, we had friends over for dinner. I wanted to be a little festive for Halloween and finally tried for the first time, on my own, Dinner in a Pumpkin! What fun!
My happy helpers, scooping out the muck and seeds!
They are hard workers and,
as Kayson says, "I a strong boy!"
The finished product!
I know the pumpkin looks a bit unappealing, but
trust me, it had to look like that for the pumpkin
to taste so good! :)
"and they all fall down!"
Having fun with friends! (If you listen carefully, you can tell Jess is having his own kind of fun with his friend!)

Photo shoot!

As you can probably tell, I'm not much of a photographer. But my boys are so cute and did pretty well for these shots, I just had to share them!
This is doing the "rock" after a high-five.
Sweet smiles!
One of these days I'll catch one of Kayson's
real smiles. But for now, I'll enjoy the cheese!
Playing with each other.
And a video to show how much Len is learning from his big brother!

And the new outing is ...

... bowling! My boys love it! Our first time, Kayson already knew enough about what it was to be excited. The second time we were planning to go, I told Kayson and he said, "I love bowling!" Lendon showed his excitement by chanting most of the way there, "I, bowling!"
Lendon could carry the ball basically on his own.
We still helped him tho .. that would hurt!
He just loves watching the ball go.
But even more, he wanted to make sure both
mom & dad saw him push it!
The happy bowler!
Check out his hold on the ball!
He's got it down!
And now for the victory dance!
They have a dragon that the kids can push it down the lane. Lendon uses it every time, but Kayson chose not to use it at all our second time. And he's pretty good! I hate to admit this, but all 3 of my boys (Jess included) bowled a better game than me. Sad. :( That just shows how good they are .. right!?! :)
