Pumpkin Carving

After the corn maize we decided that we would order some pizza and have a fun pumpkin carving night. Sometimes things do not always work out the way you want them to but you make do. Right.
Well "Q" spent the night digging the gunk out of the pumpkin and then flinging it around the kitchen. Funny. "L" got really upset because her pumpkin did not look right. Keep in mind that she is 7 and we really don't carve pumpkins often. She is our drama queen. "K" had a blast, she loved the pumpkin seeds so much that she sneaked some raw ones upstairs and ate them, so I could not tell her she should not do that until I cooked them.

Don't worry we had a very good eye on him.

"K's" Pumpkin (with a lot of dad's help)

"L's" pumpkin (after a lot of drama and with a lot of dad's help)

"Q's " Pumpkin (ended up being with a lot of dad's help also) I am not quite sure what I was doing. I know that I ended up cleaning out all of the pumpkins except Mike's maybe that is what I was doing.

Here is the pumpkin I did. It started with Mike's suggestion that I do a Pepsi Cola pumpkin. I had no better ideas.

This post brought back so many memories. My kids are grown but I loved seeing the pictures of pumpkins being carved. Thanks for sharing your family!

We didn't carve pumpkins this year. In fact - this year has felt sorta blah. I had 1 kid that trick or treated and she only went for 30 minutes. Enjoy these fun times - they don't last!
