Baby Bump Pictures

Tavein and Jared wanted some professional pictures together with the baby bump. I guess this is getting to be the thing to do. With so little time before Jared leaves they had to settle for pictures by me. These are my favorites.

Pumpkin Carving

Tonight Jared and Tavein came over to carve pumpkins with family. They called Jared's mom and dad on Skype so everyone could enjoy watching them carve their pumpkins. This ritual may seem early but they are trying to do as much as they can because Jared leaves for Afghanistan on Sunday.
As you can see they are very into cleaning their pumpkins. First they had to cut off the tops.
Then came the taking out of the seeds. Tavein is going to roast these. She calls them a carb free snack. Since she was diagnosed with gestational diabetes she has to watch her carbohydrate intake.

They had a lot of fun cleaning those pumpkins.

Even Jaxon got into the act.
Now for the design.
As you can see Jared shaved his head and Tavein enjoys giving him a bad time about it. His dad said it was blinding to look at.
Tavein chose a leaf design for her pumpkin.
Jared complimented her by carving a tree on his. Here they show off their pumpkins to Jared's parents.
The finished pumpkins.
They are very proud of  their pumpkins.
Jaxon and the pumpkins.
Jared carefully carries the pumpkins to the car.
On the way out they pause for a Halloween picture.
