Getting Ready for Halloween

Brad and I have continued preparing Eli for Halloween.  He still doesn't really understand, but he's enjoying all the activities leading up to it.

Like pumpkin carving.

Eli with his pumpkin.  He was so excited he asked to have his picture taken.

Every night as the sun goes down, Eli gets excited to go put lights in the pumpkins.  And every morning when he first gets up, he goes out front to check on his pumpkin.

We've also done a little Halloween baking,  We adapted this recipe from Bon Appetit for Pumpkin Spice Layer Cake with Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting to make cupcakes.  Um, yeah, they were awesome.

More sprinkles = better, right?

Don't hate me, but he also does dishes.  As I was busy caramelizing the powdered sugar for the frosting, I turned around and saw this going on at the sink.

He was so proud to show me how he would do dishes "in the Gambella."

Perfect kitchen helper.
