We arrived home from the pumpkin patch last weekend and got started carving.
Chris typically hates this sort of thing, but it was the first year where Jayce could really participate and had some sense of what was going on, and I don’t think he wanted to miss out on the fun.
Jayce dictated our pumpkins, (silly and happy), and it didn’t take us long to get them onto the porch.
Jayce loved this! He kept talking about how the pumpkins were glowing all night long.
Aside from the pumpkins, Jayce and I did a little bit more fall decorating around the house. We went on a few different field trips to parks where the leaves were changing, gathered up the pretty colored leaves and stomped on the dry ones.
When we got home, I picked the most colorful, dipped them in wax, and strung them up a few places in the house just to kick up the fall-ness a little bit.
This was an easy and cheap decoration.
