Pumpkin carving and a future career

Fall is getting colder and colder here in Iowa and soon Winter will be coming. This time of year makes me want to hibernate and eat comfort food. A little hard to do when our son feels like going to bed at 9 and waking up at 5 or sooner!! Yikes, it is a little rough. 

We've been laying low on the weekdays and staying busy on the weekends. This past weekend we went home for one of my best friend's 30th birthday parties. I think everyone invited had a great time. and Sullivan enjoyed an evening with just his grammie and papa.

After painting a couple of pumpkins a week or so ago, last night we decided to carve one. It was a family effort. I cut the top off and scrapped the inside. Sullivan scooped out the seeds and Mike carved out the design, Red Piglet of course. It was so much fun! We haven't carved pumpkins for several years so I think we will be bringing the tradition back. 

Only one more days till Halloween. We been hyping up this holiday to Sullivan and crossing our fingers he wears his costume. And I mean the whole thing, including the tail. The tail is what makes it and that's his least favorite part. I can probably guarantee there will be some bribery and candy eating involved throughout the night. 

Something else going on in the Nelson household is fixing cars. We have had our van at the repair shop for that last couple days due to a pretty bad door ding. Lucky enough for us, the kind person left a note with his name and number on our windshield and he's footing the bill. There are nice and HONEST people in this world. Sullivan has also been working on his car the last two nights and even this morning. Seem to me, judging by the video, that he has some major repairs as well. Maybe a future career??
