Max & the Pumpkin Auction

Jenny and I decided to decorate a pumpkin for the Annual Fall Festival & Pumpkin Auction hosted by the Raymore Chamber of Commerce. The Pumpkin Auction will benefit the Ray-Pec High School Scholarship Fund. We kept thinking and thinking about how we were going to decorate our pumpkin. We didn't want any lame pumpkin, it had to be Josh Solar Photo style. After all, this was the first year that we donated one.

We couldn't think of anything cool, then I had a wonderful idea. What if we had Max decorate the pumpkin however he wanted? Max was up for it. First, he wanted to make a car pumpkin, so we went to Target to find some supplies. We walked around for about half an hour and were striking out on the car idea. Then Jenny found some Mr. Potato Head pumpkin decorating kits. It was perfect! Max decided he would rather make an angel pumpkin than a ninja pumpkin no matter how much I pleaded with him to choose the ninja. Anyway, enough talking, you knew I had to document the event on film. Enjoy!
