Better late than never. We snuck in the pumpkin carving this afternoon and we all had a lot of fun. Riley likes pumpkin guts. Rex got the markers so Riley could color on his while Rex drew the face on his. Riley pumpkin was a bit of an experiment. I had seen a really cool idea in a magazine where you drilled holes and then Christmas lights in the holes and had a great lit up pumpkin. Well it turns out the same concept works if you just drill a lot of holes and light a candle too. I even tried to be all Martha Steward like and roast the pumpkin seeds. They turned out really good and Riley and I have a lot of seeds to enjoy. I found a memory card on sale so I out foxed the hider and have pictures to share. Of course as I type this Rex found the memory card hidden in the chair.. oh well now we can take lots more pictures!

I was just wondering how on earth I missed day 30, but then realized I was gone all day and went to bed at 9:00. Guess I'm playing catch up, but I met my own challenge - 31 comments + (Just you know, not in 31 days, but if we count the + comments I made the day you linked to some of the oldy, but goodies, then I'm solid).

Really liking the drill-y hole idea, that's sounds like serious fun!
