Tree House Update and Pumpkin Carving

Here is an update on the tree house. It's almost done. My handyman is going to add a stained glass window in that diamond shape. Oh, he has so much talent.
The red shutters open and close. You enter by climbing that ladder and going through the hatch. We still want to add a slide or zip line from off of there somewhere. All we need is grandkids closer to home to play in it. The boys at least got to spend one night in it before they went back to NYC.
I just took these pictures a day or two ago. The weather here has been fantastic!
Steph, Larry and Creed invited us over for a great dinner and pumpkin carving. Look at all the pumpkin guts in the bowls.
Eli's pumpkin was carved in honor of Grant and Cole who love Mario.
Brenna carved a cat silouette.
Of course the great pumpkin carver had to out do us all. I'm telling you the guy has talent.

I gave up on mine. Embarrassing. My pumpkin had gotten frost bite and was mushy. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. LOL
Hubby with his creation.
Here is our group with all our creations. It was like old times. Too bad I didn't have all my babies here carving pumpkins.

Steph also posted about our adventure if you want to check out more pictures on her blog.

One more day to enter my giveaway. It will close tomorrow at 10 pm when I stick all the names in a hat or do a random generator thingy to find a winner. (Don't worry...all those who linked to my giveaway will get an extra entry.) It has been great getting to know more of you out there in blog land.

Love those pumpkins-especially Mario. Bishop is super talented-just like the rest of the family. Don't be surprised if you find me in your tree house one morning...

What talent. I wish I had the patience. Your tree house looks like heaven to me. I would've died for that when I was young
