I have not been doing a good job of keeping up with the blog since we've moved, so instead of going back and blogging everything we've done over the summer, I'm just going to pick up at Halloween. This year we didn't carve pumpkins, but we did paint them. We went to the Dallas Arboretum and Ava and Max both picked out pumpkins from the pumpkin patch. They had a great time painting them and they've been sitting on our mantle. Yesterday, I finally decided the pumpkins had to go, so we went down to the pond and threw them in. That was the only way I could get Ava to part with hers!
