The Great Pumpkin(s)

This year our neighbor lent us her giant garden to plant our own garden in, this of course meant we got to plant & harvest our little own pumpkin patch. We haven't really been in to pumpkins the last several years since the kids were too young to get into it, so this year was special to have Phoebe excited to decorate pumpkins.  
Phoebe, of course, took the largest pumpkin and went to town, she LOVES anything artsy. The twins didn't participate this year as they would probably only eat the paint. Here are our lovely pumpkin masterpieces:
Cory's had to be way elaborate; it would be an insult to his painting skills to paint a normal face on his pumpkin.
Phoebe's has every color of the rainbow on her and then some & she was very proud of it!
I always have more ambition then skill, so this is what you get from me a slightly upscale girly pumpkin face.

All of these masterpieces can still be seen sitting on the table outside our front door, because I am never sure when to get rid of pumpkins that still are perfectly good.
