Pumpkin Carving

We chose our pumpkin, and brought it home. Dad began carving while K watched.

The children were disgusted by the pumpkin's "guts."

Well, K wasn't grossed out for long. She dove right in and helped clean the pumpkin out.

We saved the seeds to roast another day.

Dad asked the children to draw a design of a pumpkin. Dad chose to use T's eyes, L's nose, and K's mouth.

Not bad for his first time EVER carving a pumpkin!

Of course we had to go outside and light it up
We ended the night by eating a piece of pumpkin pie, of course!

A Post for K

I promised K's Aunt Jessica that I would post some bigger pictures of the children. T has a post about his new cub scout year, and L has a post about her new fall clothes. Last week we took some pictures of just K to share on here for Aunt Jessica (and other family and friends too). K will be turning seven very soon! She is a true joy to be around. She is creative, fun, and a hard worker! You can look at some of her artwork by going over to my other blog where I write about homeschooling, homemaking, ministry, and whatever else I have on my mind.

My Baby

My baby is growing up way too fast! She has loved getting out all her new (to her) fall clothes out! She wanted me to take a picture of her, so of course I did. Her Aunt Jessica has been complaining about the photo collages I post on here, so I'm trying to please her by posting some bigger pictures of the children on here. Next post will have to be a K only post! This one is a post only about L, and the one before this, was a T only post.

T has started his second year of cub scouts. Last year he was a tiger cub. This year he is a wolf cub! He is excited to be meeting with his cub scout friends every Tuesday night again!

Labor Day Fun!

We had a great Labor Day weekend! On Friday, we invited some new friends over for dinner and games. The Missouri Tigers made our Saturday great by gaining a victory! On Sunday we enjoyed going to church, and L and Mom enjoyed a birthday party. On Monday we enjoyed going to Chick-fil-a for lunch, playing Frisbee golf for the first time!

Is solace anywhere more comforting than in the arms of a sister.

If you don't understand how a woman could both love her sister dearly and want to wring her neck at the same time, then you were probably an only child.

L Loves to Play Putt-Putt

One of L's friends had a birthday party today! His birthday is not until December, but he wanted to have an outdoor birthday party, so we celebrated early! I thought it was a fun and creative idea! The children enjoyed pizza, putt-putt golf, petting a pony, feeding some animals, and eating cake! L's favorite part was playing golf!

Tibbetts Family Theatre

The Three Little Goblins

K has been wanting to write a play. So this week we got to work! It turned into a team effort, because T wanted to join in on the writing of the play as well. We had a lot of fun! We kept it a surprise all week and performed it for Dad when he came home today. T was the green goblin, K was the blue goblin, and L was the pink goblin. I (Mom) had the honor of playing the role of the little girl!

When Dad walked in the door, he was given a theatre ticket, some popcorn, and a lovely usher showed him to his seat!

Here's a brief review of the play from Dad.
The special effects were incredible, and there was more dialogue than I would have expected my children to be able to write.

The children did all the planning and writing of the play themselves! It was a great time, and I look forward to watching many more of their own plays in the future! The children called their play, "The Three Little Goblins and the Terrified Little Girl."
