Pumpkin Carving

Last night we carved our pumpkins for Halloween.  This was the first year that Kylie seemed interested in wanting to help with her pumpkin, although she had NO interest in scooping out the pumpkin guts with her hands.  Come on, that’s like a kid’s dream come true isn’t it?  Playing with slimy orange stuff?  She chose a Mickey Mouse design and Austin helped her cut it out.  He used his Dremel tool for most of it.  I had my doubts, but that thing really did a great job at carving out the design.  Well, I guess it depended on who used it.  Austin was a pro at it.  Me…not so much.  It kept jumping around in the pumpkin and I was afraid of what it would do next :)  I chose Jack Skeleton from Nightmare Before Christmas.  Yes, it was a beginner level design, but I can’t for the life of me do intricate pumpkins.  That’s up Austin’s alley.  He did a wolf one and it looks amazing.  He pretty much did it all with his Dremel tool.  Anyway, it was a fun night and I was glad I was able to do it before the baby came, which by the way should be any day now.  I have 4 more days left until my due date.  My doctor is on vacation until Sunday, so Sierra can come any time after that :)  We are all so excited to see her.  I’m even more excited that we have everything ready for her too.  Well, I hope everyone has a great weekend.  Wish me luck this next week!

Sierra project

This past week, I have wanted to make a canopy car seat cover for Sierra.  I found 3 different tutorials online and just used a little bit of each one to come up with my own.  It was sooo dang easy if anyone is interested.  I could email you the sites if you want.  Anyway, I thought it turned out cute :)
