Once we arrived home, Brandon mowed the lawn and Jordan finished picking up stones and sticks that Dakota has dragged all over the yard. Then Jordan came in and vacuumed for me while Brandon finished the mowing.
We had a lunch of hotdogs and an ice cream cone for dessert and then Jordan helped Grandpa bring up the Halloween decorations from the basement.
Ghosts and scarecrows are some of my favourite Halloween things.
Orange pumpkin ghosts and the bride that we put up every year. In the background hanging by the door, you can see the witch that the boys bought me for my birthday one year. The green Christmas lights are up and will be turned on to give a ghoulish glow on Halloween.
Then came a little pumpkin carving. Even Grandpa got in on it this year.
Brandon wasn't too thrilled about having his hand in a cold pumpkin. But soon all the innards were out.
Jordan didn't seem to mind so much but you can tell by the look on his face that the innards were cold.
Ghosts and pumpkins. Perfect for Halloween. Brandon's is on the left. Jordan had his turned so the face is hard to see but he insisted on it having ears.
Jordan with his pumpkin. All ready to be lit up on Halloween.
Hubby and I will have to take the pumpkins up and set them out of sight tonight, as the college students up the street are having a party. Last year they smashed all our pumpkins, including the resin one that Brandon gave me when he was about two. I did find one to replace it but it isn't the same. I'm hoping that they don't do any damage tonight.
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend as much as we enjoyed our day today.
