Addison has always been a girl that doesn't mind getting her hands dirty. She plays in the dirt, plays with bugs/worms/etc. so she stopped using a spoon and just used her hands to clean out the pumpkin.
We don't use the store bought pumpkin carving tools around here. Nope, we (as in Jeremy) use a drywall saw to carve our pumpkins. Ha! It was done in no time!
The next night we went trick-or-treating in David and Carrie's neighborhood. My parents came over as well.
Addie was set on being a UofL cheerleader. I tried to suggest some less girly costumes (trying to expand her a bit), but she landed on a cheerleader sometime in September. She gets this from her mom. I was some version of a princess three years in a row for Halloween. We went to a UofL football game in early September so I think that is where she got the idea from. Hopefully we'll go to some games and we can get some more use out of the costume.
Kate was lovin' trick-or-treating this year. She tried to keep up with the older kids, but that was hard for her.
