Benjamin Franklinstein Lives!/painting pumpkins

The other night we decorated the kids pumpkins for the boys school project. They had to pick their favorite character from a book and create that character on the pumpkin. The character pumpkins are put on display in the school library for all to see (no carving allowed though!). Jake picked Benjamin Franklinstein, from the book, Benjamin Franklinstein Lives! Cameron picked an Avenger picture book and designed Captain America. Cameron's pumpkin was still super wet with paint the morning we needed to take the pumpkins to school, so we just brought Franklinstein to the school and added both of the boys name to it. I think they turned out Super awesome!!! Just in case you are wondering....we used silly putty to create the noses on both of the pumpkins! Caroline went to town with the paints. She is such a little designer!


Here is the book that Jake did. It is a book off of the Texas Bluebonnet List for 2012-2013.

Pumpkin patch 2012

We took Cee Cee to one of the pumpkin patches in downtown Katy the other day. We thought the pumpkin patch was pretty awesome. Either that or it has been awhile since we have visited one. I think the last time we were at a pumpkin patch was when Jake was a month old and Cameron was a year. We usually just grab the $4 dollar pumpkin from Kroger's. However, this year we needed 2 special size pumpkins for the boys so they can do a pumpkin project at the school (more on that to come). Cee was delighted when she found a lady bug crawling around on one of the pumpkins.  Can you see her excitement?  She just loves any kind of animals and bugs (EEEK!)

Birthday Boy

Jake was super surprised when he saw his name on the marquee at school! I made him jump out of the car on our way to football practice for a quick picture.  Happy 9th Birthday Jake! 


Jake turned 9 last month (yes, it was a month of a lot of birthdays!). I can't believe this handsome guy is 9. Where has time gone? He is such a sweet and caring kid!
