One year ago today, while carving pumpkins, Justin & I found that the offer we made on our first house was accepted! It was such a beautiful & exciting moment that we will always hold dear to us. Due to that sweet memory, we decided to make pumpkin carving on October 30th a new family tradition!
Last year, Eliora was not as impressed with carving. Today she started off a bit skeptical due to the icky interior of the pumpkin. But after spending sometime scooping seeds out, she loved flinging pumpkin gook all over the place!
Once we went through emptying out our pumpkins, we decided on our faces! We let Ellie decided if she wanted to make a happy, spooky or sad face! All she wanted to do was "color" on the pumpkin.
SO, I should let you all know that I am AWFUL at carving pumpkins. Like really really bad. But I always some how manage to make it work. Justin is a lot more patient & particular whereas I am just butchering my pumpkin. Justin went with a happy face, I went for a fun spooky face.
It is so great to make memories in our new home! This may seem like a small thing, but these traditions, our traditions, make my heart so happy.
