It's Just Perfect!!!!

I don't know if I should admit this but...
..sometimes when we are just living life...
I hear it in a blog post.
And when we were carving pumpkins...
I knew it was happening,
I heard our lives in a story
 & ran around snapping pictures to complete our book.
So here is our story...
Rocco's Pumpkin
As told by Mom
Rocco wanted a Pumpkin.
So, he went to the pumpkin patch with his family.
He ran through the straw maze,
danced in the corn,
and even gathered up enough courage to hug the scary witch.
But, the best part of all was that Rocco got his pumpkin.
heavy pumpkin.
And he took it home.
All the kids drew out faces for their pumpkins
Then, they scooped out the cold slimy guts.
They toasted up the seeds until they turned brown & crunchy.
Rocco nibbled on the seeds while he waited for
his turn to have Mom carve HIS pumpkin.
And when it was finished
he sat back and looked at it.
He liked it!
He saw the other pumpkins.
When Annie's pumpkin was done he said,
"I wish my pumpkin had teeth like Annie's!"
But his mom said, "No Rocco, your pumpkin is just perfect."
Then, when he saw Bo's pumpkin he said,
"I wish my pumpkin had a scary mouth like Bo's!"
But his mom said, "No Rocco, your pumpkin is just perfect."
And when he saw Roo's pumpkin he said,
"I wish my pumpkin had ears like Roo's!"
and he held some ears up to his pumpkin.
But his mom said, "No Rocco, your pumpkin is perfect."
Then, his mom put some candles into his pumpkin.
She told Rocco to follow her.
She carried it into the bathroom,
shut the door,
and turned out the lights.
Finally. Rocco smiled, and said, "It's just perfect!"
True Story.
You might be wondering, "Where is Kit's pumpkin? 
But he didn't need one...because he is one.

I am going to turn this into a hard covered book
for Rocco for Christmas.
I can hardly wait!
Happy Halloween!
Please do not use any part of this story or photos. 
I don't usually care...but this feels like a part of me.

They are Magical...

Little boys are magical.
They can turn anything a different color.
(purple nail polish in my sink)
They can turn ANY object into 2 objects.
(I loved those glasses)
 And in 2 seconds flat,
they love to turn Grandpa Cuddles...
 ...into Grandma Cuddles.
(They found "My drawer" this week.)
But the most magical thing they do is make me smile!
(Only boys would insist they need a helmet to rake.)
If you need a smile get over here.
I've got lotsa little boys who give free smiles.
(Yes, I just made up lotsa...but that's how many I have!)
