i'd say that the smile in that last picture looks a little forced, what do you think? this was the only pumpkin we managed to carve before halloween. maiko says he still wants to carve his though, so i suppose we will have jack o' lanterns for thanksgiving this year. layla got her special pumpkin when her class took a field trip to the pumpkin patch. maiko got to go with some friends to the same pumpkin patch to get his pumpkin. i find it pretty wild that two of my children went to the patch with out me this year. they are certainly growing up!
