Mosaic Monday and Halloween Fun!!

Here's my mosaic for Mosaic Monday hosted by Mary at little red house!! Thank you Mary for hosting this fun party!
We adopted Lucy about two months ago! She is such a sweet little pup! She has offered many great photo ops. This mosaic is called, "I love Lucy!"

Halloween Fun!!

What do eight, eleven and thirteen year old boys have in common? They all like sharp objects and ripping the guts out of a pumpkin!

This afternoon, in order to kill time (pun intended) I took my boys to a pumpkin patch to get three pumpkins, one for each of my boys and my thirteen year old nephew(their cousin).
We came home and invited cuz over to carve pumpkins.

It was a wonderful afternoon! The three of them were so busy, stabbing, cutting, ripping and creating.

My eleven year old, the future chef, was most busy cleaning and roasting the seeds. My eight year old mostly ripped the guts out of his pumpkin (I did the carving). And my nephew, the thirteen year old, took such pride in his masterpiece, and he enjoyed spending much of the time teasing his old Aunt.:)

Halloween is one of those times when you become painfully aware of your children growing up, by how they perceive the holiday.

It warmed my heart to see them all still acting like children.
Later, we went trick or treating, which brings out the kid in all of us!
