The boys add the word "action" to pretty much everything, e.g., "Should we get some lunch action?" "Mom, let's turn on some song action!" "Let's do some dance action!" So of course, one night for FHE we got pumpkins and the next night we did Pumpkin Action.
We bought our pumpkins very early. And we live on the surface of the sun.. Oh, and the boys don't enjoy carving, at all. So we painted, of course.
And I am well-enough acquainted with my children to know that any painting done wearing their shirts and pants results in ruined shirts and pants. Sorry for their immodesty.
Both boys decided to use letter sponge stamps my mom gave us a few years to paint their names on, then to paint a face on the other side. Asher then proceeded to paint almost his entire pumpkin purple. He really, really enjoyed himself.
All in all, a great start to our fall festivities.
