Five Little Pumpkins

Five little pumpkins sitting by the gate.
The first one said, "Oh my, it's getting late!"
The second one said, "There are witches in the air!"
The third one said, "Well, we don't care!"
The fourth one said, "Let's run...
"...and run..."
"...and run!"
The fifth one said, "Isn't Halloween fun?"

Then OOOOooooooo went the wind and OUT went the light...

And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.
That little poem is from a board book we have.  Since we have five little pumpkins, I thought we'd better by them some pumpkin-colored shirts and take some photos.
This week our five little pumpkins carved/painted pumpkins and tried to look really scary for the photo.  Omar neither decorated his own pumpkin nor did he try to look scary.
 In other news, Liliana and Ruben went with Edgar, Abuelita, and Tia Elia and Tio Jonaton to a program at the Conference Center in Salt Lake.  They looked sharp.  Ruben needs some longer pants.  His birthday's coming up and maybe he'll get some.
 Since the program was only for older children, I kept our three youngest and their cousins.  I traded my two older (and I realized very helpful) kids for two really cute smaller ones.  I had a baby, a one-year old, a two-year-old, a three-year-old, and a four-year-old.  I was feeling like things were going really well and that I was a really capable care-giver.  I was making some mac n' cheese from a box when Ian (the one-year-old) and Ammon (the two-year-old) came out of Omar's room with potting soil on their persons and in their hair.  They had dumped one plant completely upside down and had knocked others partially over.  Edgar had already vacuumed that room too.
Ian, Ammon, Kiara, Marcos, & Omar
We had a great time and so did the performance-goers.

Happy Halloween from our pumpkins to yours!
