Pumpkin Shine

     I have so many posts to catch up on, but I decided that I should throw in the recent ones as I go so I don't continue to get behind....
     This week, we headed out to Betty Virginia Park for the annual Pumpkin Shine on Line. People from this area, mostly school kids, bring their decorated pumpkins to line the half-mile walking track at the park. Some are funny; some are cute; and a few are scary! Thousands of people show up for this event and it's usually shoulder to shoulder. If you come at night, all the pumpkin displays are lit up. We went before dark since we had the babies with us this year.
     My mom, dad, nieces, and our friends, Diana, Justin, and Tristen Reneau came over to join in the fun. Sara Beth loves to play with Tristen (as I'm sure you've noticed in my other posts), so it was good to get them together again. Afterwards, I had Halloween cupcakes for everyone to munch on. Yummy!

Our little family. Notice how SB's legs are blurry? She kicks them constantly!

I think SB is looking more and more like Adam :) And YOU are looking great! Those cupcakes look amazing too. Did you make them? If so, how did you get the frosting so pretty?

Thanks for the sweet words, Jaime! I did make the cupcakes. I made a buttercream frosting, mixed in some food coloring (although I never could get it really orange like I wanted), and then piped it on using a ziplock bag with the corner snipped off. On top is a mini chocolate chip.
