On Saturday, we had our annual Dad's Birthday/Pumpkin Carving Party.
The weather was beautiful, making for a perfect day.
The kids worked hard on drawing where they wanted their faces carved. Or just decorating with pipe cleaners, markers and googly eyes.
Don't let that face fool you... she really did enjoy pulling out all that slimy pumpkin guck.
My brother Trent enjoyed it too. Maybe a little too much...
My Grandpa Tunis was there to enjoy it all too.
Yes, Tunis is his real name. He's from Holland. Isn't he cute?
So what does a man named Tunis name his oldest son?
Cornelis. Or Cornie for short. It suits him well.
That's my dad with Tate. Aren't they cute too?
Finally, it was time for the cake.
Poor Millie was tired all day and just wanted to cuddle with "Baba Cornie" and "Nana Lois." We didn't find out until later that she was sick. Sorry Mom and Dad! Hope you
stay healthy this week! Funny thing is, this same thing happened at last year's party.

So, we're getting our whole big family's picture taken in a few weeks. Do you think it'll be possible to get all the kids to look at the camera at the same time? Maybe we should start taking bets...
Hope you had a good weekend too!
