I bought 4 pumpkins this year envisioning how cute all of them would be sitting on our front porch, all-lite up with their cute triangle eyes and nose. That missing-lots-of-teeth sweet smile.

And now Evelyn can get involved since she’s not trying to put it in her mouth anymore ! Plus anything that Mabel is doing you bet her little sister wants to get in on as well.
