Fall Project #6! *PUMPKIN DAY*

Breakfast time!
Pumpkin Muffins, Pumpkin Load & Pumpkin Spice Latte!
Look at this face is HILARIOUS! What a ham!
The most fun project we did! Curling construction paper on pencils... Tap them closed. Organize into any shape or item and glue onto paper. Will be doing this with more holidays and projects! FUN!

Pumpkin Spice Candles, Pumpkins everywhere and TONS of worksheets!! Found lots of info on this website!

 Then it was lunch time!
 These lil pumpkin basket nuggets were super handy on our day! Punkin' shaped PBJs with these awesome toothpick decor I found at Walmart. 
A. These are DIVINE! B. I made 12 and.... 2 days later there are ZERO.  Uhh oops! Dont worry doing crunches to compensate! Here is the recipe: Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins

Then it was dinner time!
Tortilla soup in mini pumpkins (SOOO FUN!) More of those muffins (I told you we had alot!) Pumpkin name tags at all our seats. A fun napkin holder. Dessert #1 was Pumpkin Mousse/pudding. Dessert #2 was later :o)
Then it was Pumpkin carving time!
Drive holes in the pumpkin and use the Mrs Potato Head set!!!!
Finished Product! THE best way, hands down, to carve Pumpkins with little ones, oh and a great Daddy helps too!

Then its Dessert #2 time!
Same mini pumpkins from dinner used again as bowls for pumpkin ice cream!
Obviously they are empty!

At this point Bella went to bed and it was adult carving time. Out came the knives!
Last year was the 1st time that we used "Carving Templates" everyone MUST try carving this way. Mine always looked like a 4 year old when I tried to carve free hand. With the template you just taping the picture on the pumpkin and use an exacto knife to carve out the picture! 

And wa-la......
