googly eyed pumpkins

Saturday was a dark and rainy day so we pretty much stayed put. In the afternoon, we decorated our pumpkins that we got at the pumpkin patch earlier in the week.
Just a little felt for the mouth and googly eyes stuck on with a bit of glue stick.
And a button nose for one of them.

Oh yeah, we're going to get our Halloween on around here.

In costume news, Zebah was so last Tuesday. For a few days straight, it's been Rhino. So I ordered the costume and it should be here this week. Maybe we'll put on a show for you.

The costume has just one horn and since we hear the Rhino Song about 10 times a day we know by heart that Rhinos have "2 big horns on the tip of the nose". Until we looked it up to discover that Indian Rhinos indeed have one horn, I thought I'd have to make another horn. I might still do that because I do think Rhinos look more Rhino-like and less unicornish with two.

My Goodness.....I was so surprised he gave up zebah. He seemed pretty set with it for himself on the video, heehe! I feel so bad I never sent the animal cards I had planned. I could not FIND them....They turned up this week and I will get them mailed soon. If he already has this set, he can cut them up for projects!

Amy,
I thought it was Zebah for sure! Does he give equal enthusiasm to Rhino? What a sweetie! I looked at his face today, and then at the picture of the two of you together and he has grown up so much!

I love what you did with the pumpkins...so age-appropriate and what great results for him. He must feel such great sense of accomplishment here! (Slipping into an old role)

Hope your bil continues to recover. My day has been so crazy but I am going to work to honor it, knowing that this isn't forever.

On that strange note...big hugs!

He'll be the sweetest little rhino ever! Can't wait to see him in costume. I love your posts about your boy. My 'boy' is going to be 1/4 century old just before halloween. I remember the year he was dressed as a lepruchan for Halloween. Where has the time gone?

Hooray for rainbows and crafty fun!
