We are a busy family of 3. April is a nursing student with 3 semesters remaining before receiving her RN. Kellen will be a junior in high school. He still plays his French Horn and has added a few other instruments. He now also plays the trumpet,trombone, and the mellophone. Ethan will be starting the 8th grade in the fall. Ethan still plays his guitar and is still in lessons.
Yesterday we carved pumpkins! Ethan could not stick his hand in with out gagging again this year. So I ended up cleaning it out for him. Kellen started cleaning his then told me "mom, it is just too hard." So I cleaned his out too. But the carving of the faces they did all by themselves.
Tip: Sprinkle Cinnamon in the pumpkin after it is carved before you light the candle. When the candle is lit it makes the house smell like pumpkin pie. Also, for another good smell try some Nutmeg too! The house smells great! Ethan and his pumpkin
