A Lil Friday Punkin Fun

This morning Caden, Kaki and I headed out a bit earlier than normal in search of a few PERFECT PUNKINS...

We were hoping that the pumpkin patch in our neck of the woods would be open today, but alas... they opened at noon! SO... what is any Central Texan to do but head on over to your local HEB... where conveniently... they had PLENTY of PERFECT PUNKINS to choose from...

Caden picked out a small one... just right for the paint project he had in mind. And I picked out a bigger one... perfect for carving! We didn't carve last year... just painted... BUT I felt like Caden was old enough to do it it this year. And I was right!

Well kind of... he wasn't so much into the innards of the punkin... he thought they were pretty gross, but he was excited to cook the seeds. We made sweet and salty seeds... I am a HUGE fan but Caden, not so much... he said, "I no like that, Mommy!" Ah, well ... we tried!

Ready for a little painting...

Wondering where Kaki is??!! She is napping... in her own bed... which is where she is now... although I do hear a bit of noise coming from the monitor just now... BUT the real point of all of this is that I am working on getting her in her bed for two naps a day. We did a little crying it out this morning... like 8 minutes worth... NOTHING like I had to do with Caden. I am a bit sad... and I miss her while she's in her room, BUT it does give Caden and I a little one on one time to do "big kid" things and for that I am thankful! Plus... I know it is good for Kaki. The other night I had a VERY over-tired girl on my hands... and it was COMPLETELY Mommy's fault! Mommy-fail!

Okay so a post about punkins turned into a post about napping... HA! Love it how that happens...

Before we went to pick out our punkins we had a little photo shoot of our punkin gear!

It was kind of a touch n go morning around our house, so we did the best we could on the pics! Once Kaki's orange bow arrives in the mail we'll definitely have to do round two! :)

Sweet brother and sister!!

The artsy punkin pic... we are so hip!

Happy Friday y'all!!
