(the descriptions below are actual descriptions from TMNT…read  and know that it might as well be about our children (and if you actually do know our kids very well, be prepared to be astounded at the similarities) I think I actually birthed the Ninja Turtles)

Pumpkins and Pictures Galore

haha I love Josiah's face! (not a fan of the pumpkin goop)

But definitely a fan of the tools

Hamming it up :)

A little football of course!
