Carving The Pumpkin & Bonus Music Video

Here are the pictures of us carving our pumpkin for Halloween. It was a real fun family activity. The kids had so much fun, Eric was brave to carve the biggest pumpkin ever, and it was the first Halloween London was really into.

London FREAKS out when Eric takes the top off the pumpkin!

Ryan reaches in for the seeds with Mom's help but is not too thrilled.

Ready to reach in for the seeds.

London starts trying to put the pumpkin back together again. She got really frustrated that Eric kept carving and pumpkin body parts were falling.

London was really surprised when we put the pumpkin outside? She couldn't quite figure out what was going on.
London goes for a close up of the pumpkin.
The best part of the night was when we put a candle in the pumpkin, lit it, turned off the lights and London broke out in a spontaneous "Happy Birthday"! The other kids joined in and I tried to quickly push the movie button on my camera. Enjoy!!!

Best Friends Forever!!!

Autumn's best friend is Angela Mathews. They love playing together and never fight. Angela is younger than Autumn so she isn't in school yet. Angela and her sister Ally were at my house with their mom KayLynn scrapbooking. We went outside to get Autumn off the bus and here was their reunion!!!

Here are all the girls together. London and Ally are real good friends too!
Isn't great to have a BFF?

Autumn's Birthday!!!

I am so way behind on my posts!

Autumn turned 6 October 10th! She was really excited and we had a great day! We have just started the year of family birthdays (no friend parties -- so Eric and I can have a break). Autumn chose to go to McDonald's for breakfast. We had tons of fun and good food and she really liked posing in the birthday chair.

Later in the day we went to get Autumn's ears pierced! I don't know where the idea came from? I have my ears pierced but never wear earrings and I have never really talked about it with her. But she was determined and I was like ... it's your birthday ... why not?

She is getting really nervous!!! I had the Walmart lady get another lady to help her so they could do both ears at the same time. I figured we would have one shot at this and I thought she would look best with both ears pierced.

This is a picture right after. She was pretty traumatized!!! But she survived! Good move for doing both ears at once.

Within about 5 minutes she was all better and posed with her new found friends at Walmart. She looks so pretty with her pink earings!
Autumn picked out some Dora cupcakes for her family birthday and her she is blowing out her candles.She opens one of her presents. Her Dad picked out a deluxe make-up kit for her. She loved it!

Autumn hams it up for the camera. Are we surprised?
Autumn we love you and are so proud of you! I can't believe you are in school! What a big girl! I love your free spirit and fun-loving personality. You are really good at helping your baby sister London and are such a good friend to your older brothers and sister. You are a leader and I love that about you.
Hugs and Kisses,
Mommy and Daddy
