I love looking at Pinterest and getting all sorts of cute fall pumpkin decorating ideas. And then I remember I have two boys ages 3 1/2 and 1 1/2 who have the attention span of well, a boy their age and the creativity of well, a boy their age. You should see the 'art work' they bring home from pre-school. They are what I would call 'minimalist.' So my sister gave me the great idea to hammer nails in the pumpkins because is anything cooler than working with a 'big huuugee daddy hammer?' Nope. And then we decided to paint them black. I suggested a few other colors, but all they wanted was black because 'black is spoookyyy mom.' You can't control this creativity.
Day one - Stop it's hammer time.
Day two - Thick black is the new black.
Day three - Yes, Dad is home!
