Pumpkin People

We finally got around to decorating the kids’ pumpkins. Now, we haven’t carved our big family pumpkin yet, but we let them put their Mr. Potato Head pumpkin decorations on a few. We picked up the Mr. Potato Head d├ęcor at Target. Everyone got to pick out the character that the wanted. I was surprised at how cute they were!! (and only $7!) Now, we get to pick out a big pumpkin to carve for the porch!!

It took us a few minutes to figure out how to get the pieces in, but Chris got smart and found a grill skewer. It was PERFECT! Just what we needed to create the little holes for the plastic pieces to fit into!

It was a lot of hard pushing, but the kiddos helped as much as they could. They loved it!!

Baby Reese is on her way!

So, apparently everyone I know is having a baby! ha! On Saturday, October 13th, April’s mother-in-law hosted a baby shower for her and baby Reese. It was great to get everyone together! Reese is going to be such a lucky little sister with big sisters like Addyson and Abigail. (and yes, she has an “A” name too.. she will be Anniston Reese, and go by Reese. PRECIOUS!!) We just love our Caldwell family and are so excited for them to bring another precious little girl into the world. But, seriously, THREE girls!!! And so far, they’re all blonde-haired blue-eyed BEAUTIES! Mr. Caldwell has is work cut out for him! ha! I see him, Chris, and our boys going on QUITE a few hunting/fishing trips in the years to come! haha!
