Rhetta wasn't interested in pumpkins last year. This Halloween was all about pumpkins! She learned how to draw a jack-o-lantern then drew numerous pumpkin shaped balloons like the one she saw at the supermarket. She stepped foot in the pumpkin patch, another first. She wanted them to stay in the field but we snuck one in the truck, one to which she had paid particular attention. Once we got started carving she really got into all aspects of it. She drew her own design and with just a little direction carved it out all by herself.
I have been working on a sock puppet project. Rhetta helped pin the antennae on one of them. She calls them balloons. Hee!
