I should have taken a picture.
A picture of what my dining room table looked like after 12 pumpkins were carved. The wind was wicked so we had to move the festivities inside. I had pumpkin seeds, guts and chunks littering my table and floor. I don't know how many times I had to remind that we don't throw pumpkin guts in the house.
K3 had a great day and the birthday shindig turned out well. Lots of noise, food and people and the best version of the birthday song ever. (Anyone from my family who is reading this will laugh. Our birthday song makes animals howl in the next state and gets worse every time we sing it.)
This is a busy birthday time for us. We'll be singing the birthday song a lot.
