pumpkin carving + cupcake making

As you know, any time we go to Moomie's we gotta get our hands dirty in the kitchen. Moomie loves involving the boys in the kitchen. She is always prepared, patient, and most of all, she spoils them real good. Her skeleton cupcakes were just the treat we {did not} need.
And of course, Leo had to do a quick peek-in to see what he could get into. 
Jonah's favorite part was the icing. 
Andrew's favorite part was the icing too--surprising... 
Check out this post where Moomie had an apple-of-a-day with the boys in her kitchen
He was super proud of his cupcakes. There were a couple of cupcakes with only icing missing and we could only guess as to who the culprit was..... Jojo!
Moomie had asked me if she could get pumpkins for the boys to carve. I impulsively said yes. I didn't know she meant the two biggest pumpkins on earth. 
My brother and sister are great tios & tias because they were the ones to get their hands gooey and slimy with all that junk inside the pumpkins...I knew the little boys would want nothing to do with that part of the process. 

...and then came the part that involved me which was designing the faces...
Andrew requested a spider. So I made the cutest spider possible. Also note that Andrew didn't help in this process either.
...and Jonah requested a Jack Skellington type design...so I made the cutest pumpkin Jack possible. And again, Jonah didn't help with any of this process either.
I am in love. Unfortunately, the 40 pounder pumpkins had to stay at Moomie's because we no have space at our tiny house. 
The rest of the stay consisted of going 'thrift shopping' and finding an outfit for future baby, a crate for our first. ever. SHOPWitty craft show this weekend {so excited!!!} and used tools for our trade. We ate super good food and missed my oldest little brother because he recently moved to Washington {state} for his pilot training {whyy so far away, Carl!!?}
Both boys always have a blast outside on the trampoline. And they also had a blast wiping their boogers all over their faces as we all had have minor allergies. Eeww. They love playing with the family dog, Freckles, who could act as a small horse but is the most gentle small horse you could play with....
...and we also loved a lot on this fussy little guy....he lost all of his hair, his skin is clearing up, and he finally cries and coos for real instead of just grunting! 
We love going to Moomie's. I just wish Texas wasn't so darn big or that we could be a bit closer to her! 
Have a great week, guys!
