It has been one heck of a day. Ugh. It hasn’t been a definitively bad day, per say. It’s just been the kind of day where you’re one step behind. I feel like I’m just stumbling through it. It’s week three of the hubby traveling for work, and though things have been running smoothly, the cracks are starting to show. My patience is running just a tad bit thin.
With that being said, I’m trying my best to focus on Halloween which is just a few days away! I’m one of those people who loves Halloween, but I don’t completely throw myself into it really. I’m just not THAT good at it lol. We do costumes and pumpkins, plus obviously trick or treating. I always want to do lot of trick or treating but my kids get stage fright and then the fun starts getting sucked right out. Kids, am I right?? Haha.
Are you ready for Halloween…
I’m all ready, costumes have been purchased and we hit the pumpkin patch at Jones Family Farms. I was really hoping this post was going to be a pumpkin carving post, but life had other ideas. My stinking printer has crapped out on me after 6 years. I’m feeling incredibly bewildered by this because I have to research all over again to find a new one! Why printer, Why??
How we carve awesome pumpkins…
I’m sure you’re wondering why my printer would interfere with pumpkin carving festivities. Last year, after watching many, many Instagram posts about pumpkin carving, my husband decided this was something he could do. So, we picked and printed out two design and taped them to the pumpkins. Armed with his trusty drill, he managed to create some pretty awesome carvings!

I’m not sure yet what we are going to carve this year, but we do have 3 big pumpkins this year. A little advice if you plan on trying this, clean those pumpkins out well. You want to get everything out and even clean extra meat off the side you’re planning on carving on. But not too much that it might make the pumpkin sink in. Also, have all your drill bits handy before you start.
While we handle the big pumpkins, I also picked up small pumpkins so the kids can paint them and stay busy. I hope to have this done this weekend, so check back here for the part two post!! In the meantime, check out the photo gallery below for picks from our trip to the pumpkin patch. My hubs makes a special appearance, unbeknownst to him lol!!
How will or have you carved your pumpkins for Halloween?? I’d love to see your pictures! Comment below and leave me some love!!
