Our first attempt at carving pumpkins was fun and messy, but unfortunately our creations only lasted a few days before liquifying on our front porch. Apparently jack-o-lanterns have a very short life span when sitting unprotected in the rain. Who knew. But luckily, my wonderful friend Maren came across a great find and treated me with a Mrs. Potato Head pumpkin set. Ryan and I took family pictures in front of Maren's house with Queen Isabella (whom Ryan loving named). I guess Ryan and I do have good genes after all.
